We had a party last night. I realized that although I had started my Christmas letter, it probably wasn't going to get finished or mailed. So I invited a bunch of families over for a little Christmas Open House. It was so fun just to say hello and Merry Christmas, and share a few snacks/treats.
Did I say a few?
Perhaps I should amend that. I wish I had taken a picture. The buffet table was loaded with yummy holiday food. We made some, and everyone brought more.. so that make a lot! It was wonderful. (Just wish I had some of those stuffed mushrooms left!)
Here's photo of a few leftover cookies. They were so cute that I wanted to show you.
Next was a plate of these DARLING snowmen! Daughter-in-law Katie made them. Aren't they so cute! She just frosted sugar cookies with white frosting and added a marshmallow and painted on the details. I wish I had taken a better picture. They were really fun.
There's only a few of these left, but they were easy and yummy. I just placed grated Parmesan Cheese in a wreath shape on parchment paper. Added chopped parsley and some red bell pepper berries. Melt and toast in the oven for a few minutes. These would be great served floating on some soup or just to eat with all the other snacky foods. (I finished these off this morning.)
Oh, wait! We did have some fabric: After the party was over, JoJo was feeling a little stressed that everyone had gone and taken all of the favors with them, so I said, let's go make your Christmas pillow case quick. And so we did. It only took a few minutes, and he was so delighted that he went right to bed.
