WIAW – New Year’s Eve

Thanks, Jenn, for holding another great WIAW.  Below are the eats from my family’s New Year’s Eve celebration!  Oh, we got wild up in here.  I stayed up till 11 … so close to midnight but I just couldn’t make it!  Yup, I’m an old fogey at the age of 28!

Paella!

  1. That paella looks amazing, I’ve never heard of it before! And I can only imagine how wicked amazing those cake balls are, those things are like crack! 😀
    So glad you guys had such a fun new years together 🙂

    • to be honest, i’m not the biggest fan of rice (my japanese and mexican ancestors are rolling in their graves), so i don’t eat the paella. however, if you love rice, spices, shrimp and sausage, then this stuff is for you! 🙂 my mom’s gone cuckcoo for cake balls and the whole family is loving it!

    • the no sugar is actually going pretty well. i’m a lot more used to it after my first challenge in november, so i know where to go for the sugar free options! i’ve also found items that are sugar free (like sugar free pasta sauce and pizza sauce, which is incredible hard to find!).
