Eating, Drinking and being Merry

Tonight we host our annual holiday party. We've done it for 25 years. Neighbors and friends gathering for drinks, food and hopefully fun. RQM can't make it. He has to work which totally sucks. Somehow we will manage without his adorable smiling face.

After so many years we have it down to a science. Don't get me wrong, it's still a lot of work. The food shopping is the worst part... oh, and dusting my enormous doll collection which takes days. But mostly, it falls together easily in a week. Right now the table is set, the bar assembled. The house looks great.. front porch decorated with poinsettias and wrapped faux gifts. All preliminary preparations finished.... the turkey is in the oven with the ham to follow.

We'll have fresh rolls; baked turkey; baked ham; Smithfield ham from VA; assorted cheese; Smoked Wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon; Swedish meatballs; a vegi tray; homemade cheese ball and olive spread... pickles, olives, chips, crackers, toasted pecans and party mix and Christmas cake.

But right now, a rest before I shower.

Wish all my blog buddies could be here to joins us!
