We're having my parents, sister, BIL, and their 3 teenage children over for new years eve.
They will all have travelled back from the beach that afternoon, so wont want to do any kind of cooking/preparation.
I'll be almost 38 weeks pregnant so I'm not keen to cook a major meal either.
We all just want it to be something really low key and easy. It's summer here so we'll probably eat outside.
We had them all over for Christmas eve where we had a BBQ.
So I'm thinking really easy, throw it on the table and let people help themselves type food.
So far Mum and I came up with: nice breads, cold meats and salad for people to make filled rolls with. Mini sausage rolls.
Brandy snaps and sponge cake with strawberries for afterwards.
Being pregnant what I can eat is limited, but I'm happy to eat the vegetarian/salad options. I'm just trying to think of what is a) easy and b) appealing.
My other problem is that my sister is suggesting we get take-out...but this probably won't get decided until they get back form the beach around lunchtime on new years eve...so if we opt out of take-out the food needs to be stuff we can just run to the supermarket and get.
