New Year’s Eve is always fun, but what we really look forward to every year is New Year’s brunch. We usually head to a restaurant with a group of our friends, ready to rehash the events of the evening prior over a pitcher of mimosas and a platter of breakfast potatoes, but this year, needless to say, things are looking a bit different. But your pared-down New Year’s brunch at home doesn’t have to be depressing – nor does it have to require a ton of work, thanks to Trader Joe’s. These heat and eat foods are easy enough to make even if you did have one too many celebratory glasses of two-buck-Chuck on NYE, and so satisfying that the only thing you’ll miss about your usual New Year’s brunch is the company. But hey, isn’t that what Zoom is for?
