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.
Will Marti make her Hot Artichoke Dip or Frozen Chocolate Mint Delight?
Will someone follow Shirley’s recipe for Yummy Chocolate-Angel Food Dessert?
Will Sue Butler make her famous Lemon Bars?
Will Betty make her Layered Lettuce Salad or Boter Koek?
Will Kathy make her Blueberry Jello?
Will Dee bring Pauline’s Strudel?
Will Ruth make her Hot Bean Dip?
leaving the Lipton Soup
Onion Dip & Potato
Chips for someone
traveling from afar.
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: http://www.lasmadres80.net/LMRecipesIndex.html
