New Year’s Eve is all about the food and what to wear. The appetizer, I always prepare for special occasions is turkey bacon wrapped around just about anything! It’s true.

Turkey bacon doesn’t drip grease on your guests. It is delicious and can be done ahead.

Other great food to wrap in Turkey Bacon is water chestnuts, asparagus, and meatballs.

As for what to wear? Classic Black of course (it is more forgiving if you happen to drip on your dress, too)
