Christmas Party Food

Christmas is full of memories for all of us of wonderful times with family and friends.  So, it’s time for a trip down memory lane.

At Happy Hour had a discussion about the food for the Christmas Party.
We figured since the theme was black/white…like an old television set…we should have retro food.
We also decided that we’d just have appetizers and desserts this year.
Think of food from your past, something you enjoyed growing up, as a newlywed, or when you attended a Las Madres party.
Was it made using Bisquick or by opening a can of peaches or pie filling?
Did you use jello or a cake mix?


We talked more about this at coffee and decided to add salads to the menu…think Waldorf Salad, Ambrosia, or ?


Maybe it’s time to get out your old Pot of Gold Cookbook to find that retro recipe
…or look in your Betty Crocker or Better Homes & Gardens cookbooks
…or in your old recipe file.

We talked about Magic Cookie Bars and those mini cheesecakes made with a vanilla wafer on the bottom and cherry pie filling on top.


Maybe you can find that old recipe by going to the Recipe link on our website at:


So, search your memory for that retro recipe.

Spring Ladies Trip...Ruth

I have 16 confirmed guests for May 7-10, including me, and a maybe for Sue Ballard.  If you don't see your name below, please let me know.

Downstairs Master            Shirley and Cathy
Downstairs Queen             Kathy R and MK Ryan
Downstairs Trundles         Ginny and Vicki
Downstairs Couch             Sally
Downstairs Airbed           Janis

Upstairs Master               Robin and Sharon
Upstairs Queen                Joan and Merrilee

Lori and Buz'                    Ruth and Marti

TBD                                  Sue Butler
TBD                                  Terri Krevanko

Marti and I will zip to Buz and Lori's each night to sleep (they're very close).  Not to worry, at least I'll be back bright and early to start coffee and breakfast!

Sue Butler and Terri might also be able to stay at Buz and Lori's or otherwise the upstairs couch or more airbeds.  The upstairs couch is very public.  There'd be no privacy.  If Tina, Sue Ballard or anyone else can come, I'm sure we can find room.  I can always pitch a tent in the backyard too :).

Think of things you'd like to do between now and then and I'll try to find some fun things to do as well.  It'll be a hoot!
