Walmart’s $40 New Year’s Dinner for 10: Giveaway

Just when you start to get the toys put away, your house re-organized and your home cleaned after the Holiday parties, you start to look at the credit card damage “Santa” created on your behalf.  As we look forward to the year 2010, one of my New Year Resolutions will be to save money for a family vacation this Summer.

Walmart has long been known for “rolling back prices,” but I was stunned to learn that I could create an entire New Year’s Day meal for 10 people under $40!   Check out Walmart’s Holiday Meals website to learn about recipes created by Food Network star Aarón Sánchez to go with Walmart’s affordable holiday menu to help families create a delicious Christmas or New Year’s celebration on a budget.


Want to create a party your friends and family won’t forget and save money, too?  Chef Aarón Sánchez has tips for turning a New Year’s party into an extra-special affair to remember. Using standard party ingredients, such as cocktail shrimp, a veggie platter, and crescent rolls, Chef Aarón created a party-ready fiesta spread for 10 for as low as $40! It includes:

Shrimp Tray (5 servings)
Vegetable Tray (10 servings)
Hillshire Farms Little Smokies (8 servings)
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (6 servings)
Land O’Lakes Egg Nog (8 servings)
Red Velvet cake

Sound good?  Print the tips, tricks and recipes from Walmart’s Holiday Meals site and head to your local Walmart to stock up on everything you need to make your party a success!

  1. I’d love to try the Coquito (Puerto Rican style egg nog) — anything involving coconut AND coconut milk is delicious in my opinion! 🙂

  2. We’re making eggnog for New Year’s Eve and we’ll be using Arron’s recipe for Coquito (Puerto Rican style egg nog).

  3. I think the recipe for the Mexican shrimp cocktail sounds great!

  4. I think the Creamed Corn Gratin looks yummy. I’ve never had it and would love to try it! Thanks for the review and giveaway!

  5. Green Bean and Mushroom Picadillo, I love mushrooms. So many people either don’t try mushrooms or just flat out don’t like them, I’ve liked them for so long I can’t imagine how anybody doesn’t like them. But I don’t get much opportunity to prepare them because they aren’t a big hit with too many people.

  6. I’m a facebook fan of yours and I MIGHT be one of Halls but first of all, I don’t think you meant to include them, and second of all, I can’t figure out who they are without a link.

  7. Definitely her Blue Cheese-Stuffed Rolls recipe,don’t tell her but I am stealing her recipe and making them for the New Year’s Eve party 🙂

  8. I would love to try his reciepe for Ham with Mango Jalapeno Glaze sounds really yummy

  9. I would like to try the mushrooms stuffed with lil smokies! Thanks for the chance.

  10. The ham with mango jalapeno glaze sounds fabulous! I recently made a ham with mango orange glaze and it was the best tasting ham I remember having! This sounds like it would have the same fabulous mango, with a bit of added kick from the jalapeno!

  11. I have had Mexican Shrimp Cocktail in restaurants, now thanks to Aaron’s recipe I can make it at home! Great yummy giveaway, thanks!
