Holiday Meals Part 3: New Year’s 2013

Clam Chowder

I went grocery shopping, cleaned meat and veggies for stocking away in the freezer, and prepared my meals for the week of Christmas over the course of about two days. As a result, I had little interest in spending a lot of time in the kitchen cooking for the New Year so I decided to keep things even more simple.

After Thanksgiving I develop a severe disgust towards turkey that lasts until a few weeks before the next Thanksgiving. When Christmas rolled around this feeling extended to most other typical fancy holiday meats (ham, roasts, etc.) so I decided to limit the meat and make things as simple as possible.

Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed the holidays and your New Year is off to a great start. I’d like to kick off the New Year by taking a look back at the 2012 holiday season.
