And I need to seriously ramp up my planning. It’s not every year you get the opportunity for two New Year’s-style celebrations, so this year I really want to make the most of it. I’m trying to come up with the perfect menu, and I’m torn between Mesoamerican/Mexican food, or at least foods using those ingredients (okay, any excuse to make corn and squash soup!). And, of course, there should be a bunch of desserts because what is better preparation for outrunning zombies than loading up with lots of calories for energy (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!!). If I start now I should have enough time to test each one of these recipes ahead of time and pick the best one for A-Day.
