The No Cook New Year's Eve Meal

I've been extremely distracted with our house, but I'm back in the new year with a food post! My husband and I decided to take it easy this New Year's Eve, so we took a trip to Whole Foods in Westport, CT and stores nearby to get some ideas. Note to Whole Foods - you need a store in Stamford! As I've mentioned before, supermarket choices are rather limited in this area.

We ended up with a whole bunch of no cook, finger licking food (no flatware involved). On the New Year's Eve menu were some cooked dungeness crabs that we scored for $5.99/lb (regularly $9.99/lb) and a plate full of prosciutto wrapped
cantaloupe, olives, and cheese. Since it was a festive occasion, we splurged on truffle cheese.

We can't afford to buy truffles, so the next best option is cheese laced with little precious specks of truffles. Just look at this tiny piece of heaven!.

We washed down this easy, no cook meal with a bottle of champagne. After such a hectic past couple of months, this low key night was special and perfect.
