Another fun one from the gals...
Here's my first attempt. Hope everyone likes it!
TABLESCAPING IDEA: (This is another good one) Use this dish as a centerpiece by taking three coordinating cake stands, big to small, stack them up and fill up the space with these cups separated by grapes or strawberries. It'll be a stunning showpiece and it wouldn't take too much time! (That reminds me, I need to go back to Ross... for some- um... skirts, yeah, skirts, I'll go with that excuse!)
We all need a quick appetizer to get the party star---ted!!!
Here are my "Creamy Cups" to share. It's got sausage, black pepper, cheese and sourcream in wonton wrappers made into a cup in a mini-muffin dish. Baked for 8-10 minutes until cheese mixture is melted, and because it's baked, it's actually a light dish. It is very yummy!
She said, "Oh, I don't know if I should tell you. It's not very healthy!" To me, that's ok... It's party food!
The dish it's sitting on is also a Target find back in Mesa, AZ for 50 cents each and I got the last decent four. When we moved here to Texas, they were one of the Christmas items that got separated from the pack. What great luck because we didn't have time to go to the storage to grab our other Christmas items. I had four of them; I used one and the kids wanted to use the other three to hold their individual pieces of this delish finger food. So they did... (The chocolates got moved to a lowly regular plate after this shot)
Every New Year's Eve, we make sure that we have tons of round fruits to bring in continous cycle of prosperity and sweet life.
We had a pretty difficult year then, so most of my items were minimal and "pennies on the dollar" clearance of 75% off or more. I think that's why we didn't have any photos of Christmas 2007 table- I don't think I did a tablescape then plus we were entertaining the missionaries of our church who stopped by for some desserts! (Did anybody bring some?)
Make sure to let me know how the potluck goes! Can't attend; got homework again on Public Admin Finance... :( Enjoy!
