There he sat...
waiting for someone to come along and turn him over.
Meanwhile Santa and the Angel were quietly waiting down the way...
It's that time of year again at my house...
Ready, Set, Roll!
It's always a good excuse to feed my friends some yummy food...
This year I did an Italian theme.
A country Italian salad with peppered salami,
garbanzo beans and red onions.
Then crock pot lasagna...
I was inspired by this recipe, but since I'm not very good
at following directions, I added ground sausage and turkey,
fresh garlic and nutmeg.
It was outstanding and had everyone asking for the recipe...
Super easy and as an added bonus,
because it cooks and bubbles away for hours,
the house smelled divine!
Salami and cheese tray for those little nibbles...
and of course it wouldn't be Italy without
biscotti or tiramisu!
A yummy time was had by all!
There aren't too many things better
than having your home filled with friends and laughter,
enjoying some delicious food.
We end the evening with a fun little gift exchange,
where we pull numbers,
and can "steal" each others gifts.
There's always a lot of giggling and in the end
everyone goes home with some fun little gift.
This year look what I got...
A fun polka dot set of cappuccino cups!
How perfectly Italian...
