Happiness and horror at the mere thought of the December 31 offensive are swiftly taking over our country. After all, the holiday is considered to be family, and the feast is its integral part. Even an avid housewife is unlikely to want to stand at the stove for several days, but celebrating the New Year with pizza and tangerines is not the most romantic option.
It was for such holidays that they came up with a snack delivery service, when you only need to put on a beautiful dress, cool the champagne and open the door to the courier. But if you still decide to be involved in the creation of the New Year's table, we strongly recommend that you think through the menu in advance.
Here are a few simple and quick ideas from Andreeva Katerina – the creator of the Dip Me service!

This is your salvation with all the suddenly surging guests and gatherings with friends. Dry slices of bread in a pan, drizzle with olive oil, add some favorite foods and a little sauce, jam or honey. Jamon and other meat go well with herbs and sweet sauce, any cheese with fruits, nuts and honey, and if you are too lazy – tomato, a little basil, black pepper, salt and balsamic vinegar.
All you need is to stock up on a few small heads of the most unusual camembert or brie cheese. Heat the oven to 180 degrees, wrap the cheese in parchment with a sprig of rosemary and send it to bake for 15 minutes. Serve hot cheese with sliced baguette and raspberry jam (or liquid honey).

Excluding mozzarella from the menu in the winter season is not at all worth it. It is enough to include imagination and not be limited to tasteless greenhouse tomatoes: mozzarella with ripe oranges or baked beets, arugula and olive oil can interestingly decorate your holiday table.
Cheese and meat boards
Stock up on your favorite cheeses, jamon or prosciutto, all kinds of sausages for the winter holidays. These products are perfectly stored in the refrigerator. And supplementing them with olives, sun-dried tomatoes, grissini or slices of bread, nuts and honey, you will get a delicious plate of antipasti in a matter of minutes.
Salmon or veal, avocado, tuna or even raw champignons – each of these products can be, if not the main course, then an excellent hearty snack for the festive evening. You just need to finely chop the raw product, add a little olive oil, French mustard, lemon juice, chopped fresh herbs and sea salt. Stir, put in a small bowl, crush with black pepper and serve immediately.
Let your New Year be tasty and easy, and the holidays – always carefree!
