Countdown to 2023 with A Medley of Appetizers for Your Celebration
Remember the movie, Mermaid?
It was released in the 90’s so it’s highly possible that you don’t. Or that you never saw it in the first place. But the main character, played by Cher, was a very unconventional single mom who moves to small town in New England with her two daughters.
Rachel was a great character and a real oddball. Among her many eccentricities was the fact that she only ever served appetizers. Main dishes, she felt, were too much of a commitment.
Well, I like a good main course but I really, really, really love appetizers. A delectable little bite of something scrumptious just make my heart happy. And a whole spread of appetizers? That makes my heart jump for joy!
Of course, even one is good. But a whole array of New Year’s appetizers is an amazing way to kick off another year. Here are a few ideas for appetizers to help get your 2023 off to a terrific start!
