When it comes to all things kitchen and entertaining- my go to shop always has been Kitchen Stuff Plus. My eyes light up like a kid in a candy store, not knowing where to begin and filling up my cart along the way.
This year New Years Eve is going to look different but smaller doesn’t mean not better. From bubbles for the “big kids” and a hot chocolate bar for the little ones, the options are endless.
When I think of what foods to bring out while hosting, I instantly think- comfort food. Also my kids demand is always “Mom, your chili”. That’s where the Anchor Hocking Presence Glass Mini Trifle Bowl comes in. Not only does it give everyone their chance to have their own individual bowl, it adds so much to your table.
Now to share with you the easiest and most delicious chili recipe!
Georgia’s Must Have Chili Recipe:
- 1 ½ pound ground beef
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 ½ tablespoons chilli powder
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 1 bay leaf
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 (15/17 oz) can tomato sauce
- 1 can red kidney beans
- Salt and pepper to taste
What to do:
- In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine the ground beef, onion. Cook until beef is browned and drain.
- Place saucepan with drained beef back on the stovetop. Add in your minced garlic, chilli powder, bay leaf, cumin, tomatoes, tomato sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and then turn down and cover. Allow to simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Stir in the beans and heat through.
We also decided that tacos usually makes everyone happy so when I saw the KSP Taco Condiment Bowl (Set of 6) it was perfect for all the toppings everyone loves.
Making the kids hot chocolate bar is always a ton of fun! KSP has a ton of options when it comes to glass canisters. We got a set of three to put in marshmallows, hot chocolate and of course crushed candy canes for the toppings. The KSP Christmas Camper Mugs (Wonderland) are the perfect size and look great on any countertop.
Looking for great stemware is also very important and I instantly fell in love with the Trudeau Gala Stemless Champagne glasses (they come in a set of 4). I knew they were a must have in my cart and I haven’t been sorry.
Some other things to note in this post is the KSP Christmas Decal Celebrate collection. Anything with gold sparkles is a MUST HAVE for me. The options of this collection are endless. From plates to mugs to 2-tier buffet stands and serving plates– you can’t just purchase one.
So when thinking about what to do and what you need when it comes to this New Years Eve- the answer is easy. KSP!
