Moving from 2012 to 2013 could not have come fast enough for me!  Though 2012 held some good times, my pending divorce has me  ready to move on and start fresh!  And there is almost nothing better than a New Year to help gain new energy to make changes and happiness happen!

My plan this New Year’s was to take my daughters to their best friend’s house for a huge party complete with food, drinks and a bonfire perfect for roasting marshmallows!  But when I got a call that the hostess had come down with the nasty cold and sinus infection everyone is getting right now, my heart sank.  Now what would I do?  I did NOT want to sit at home on another major Holiday {my ex had the kids the week of Christmas} thinking about nothing!

So, I picked up the phone, called my best friend, loaded my kids in the car and headed to her house two hours away to ring in the New Year with her and her son!  The girls were over the moon excited!

But seeing as I had – errr – invited myself, I could not show up empty handed!  Lucky for me, in anticipation of the other party, I had already been  to Sam’s Club for goodies!  Yes, I packed up my kids and headed to the store that generally has everything I need in my house!  That includes the 15 pack of macaroni and cheese.  You understand.  LOL

Check out my entire shop and TWO celebrations below in my Google + Album:

As the girls and I munched on pizza – $10 for all 4 of us with drinks = nice! – I thought of what I could get to take to a New year’s celebration with a lot of people.  Something delicious and nice looking that I could be proud of.  I strolled the aisles – and by strolled I mean ‘rushed up and down trying to get out before my kids drove me NUTS’ – and surveyed the many options of goodies I could take.  Meat and cheese trays, heat and serve meals and more.  But it was on the end cap that my eyes rested on the Daily Chef Chicken and Bacon Bruschetta.

Just the sound of it made my mouth water!  I put a box in my basket, added some Daily Chef Pigs in a Blanket for the kids and headed to find champagne!  Clear and obvious purchase made, I got my standard waffles and mac and cheese plus some fruit and we headed out!

So when I decided to head to my best friend’s house, I was all ready!  I packed an ice chest and headed that way.  Once I got there, I laid out the Bruschetta, the pigs in a blanket, some fruit and the champagne and served it up!

Oh my happy taste buds!  The Chicken & Bacon Bruschetta was crisp and creamy all at the same time!  The bread stays firm and the cheese melts into it in the oven.  When I bit into each one… you don’t need to know how many I helped myself to! – I tasted the creamy Ranch dressing and the warmth of it all.  It was SO GOOD!

So much so that the next day when my parent’s visited for New Year’s day, I cooked up the second bag!  Turns out, the Bruschetta from Sam’s used to be one of their favorite things to snack on at home and being here having them reminded them to get some more!

As you continue to ring in the New Year or have celebrations for any occasion in 2013, remember that you can serve a super easy appetizer that is delicious and fun to eat too!  Just pick up some Daily Chef Bruschetta next time your are at Sam’s so that you have some on hand!
