All the Nuts Came Over

Thanks to all that replied to Mrs Peanut's request for appetizers. All the food turned out great. The shindig took place last night. It was a huge success. It has been about 10 years since this part of the family has been together at one time so it was good to laugh and celebrate the holidays together.

Lots of pictures too. We'll see how incriminating they are when I download on the computer. (grin)

The little ones were a handful to keep up with but that is what the spiked eggnog and/or wine is for. We made a DVD of old family photos and put it to music. We watched it several times and everyone laughed and cried. Even had time for a "friendly" family poker game. I was fortunate to end up $30 ahead. Family is not necessarily in the "family spirit" when there is money on the table. It was fun though. Everything wrapped up around 1:00 AM.

Thanks again for the recipes. Merry Christmas to all and I hope your family get-togethers work out as well as ours did.

How come when one is telling a story of a poker game they are always the winner┐ Anything like when one goes fishing? HAHAHa Just teasing!

Sounds like a great time, I tried to get in, but that big ole bald bubba at the door seemed to know me. LOL
I just have to know, was their any meatloaf? hehe
We'll actually have ours on New Years day this year. We're hoping to get everybody there to take some pix. Mom & Dad are 83 & 84 and we'd really like to get a whole family pic.
Have a merry Christmas, and enjoy the memories AND the $30.00

Ohhh no, we'll have pork and sauerkraut for new years, we'll have our family Christmas party on new years evening.. WITHOUT meatloaf.

No meatloaf but ...    Posted 12-24-2004 at 11:16:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
I made up for it by making a smoked tuna dip that looked good. Trust me though, it was horrible. It didn't wink at anyone but I think it jiggled its way into the garbage early into the party. For some reason everyone thought the stack of napkins would be better situated in the spot that was occupied by my nasty (but visually pleasing) bowl of goo.

Oh my is that how you limit the amount of food your guests eat?
Throw a little something yucky on the buffet?
I guess after a bite of that pretty dip they are more cautious before taking a big bite of the next thing they see! LOL
