for casual, sit-down New Year's Day dinner for 12 people. Two people are vegetarians, one won't eat pasta or seafood, and one is deathly allergic to mushrooms. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/eek.gif I've already resigned myself to 2 different entrees and multiple sides but I would like to find things that can be prepared in advance so I don't have to do a lot of last-minute cooking, especially since my kitchen is open to the living area and I don't want to look like a stressed-out madwoman. Other considerations are that it's too cold to grill, ingredients have to be available at an average supermarket, and I can ask guests to bring some things like salad. I'm thinking a pork roast is going to figure into this but need a veg main dish too. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/confused.gif Any of your outstanding recipes would be appreciated. TIA.
