So that invite to a New Year’s Eve Bash turns out to be “pot luck” or there’s just one more something-something you want to put out for your own cocktail spread. Don’t worry, these delicious Crab Points will win rave review with almost no effort.
My biggest fear in life is not having enough for guests to nibble on or showing up without a large enough contribution. Last year we attended a holiday a pot luck, and the entire back of our car was full of food.
Hubby reminds me all the time that other people are bringing food, too. He stresses “a dish to share” not a carload to share. What can I say except I am truly my mother’s daughter. My mother believed that not only did everyone get their fill, but that no guest every left our home without a doggie-bag of goodies.
So if you are like me and you want to go all out, without really making yourself too crazy, this is a great recipe to have on hand.
Happy New Year!
