Mary Beth loved hearing how our Christmas card came to be thanks to Eileen Ogle and her wreath giving!

We started off with a Brie en Croute (apple pecan) from Neiman Marcus.  Oh my, it’s all warm, creamy, cheesy goodness.  (It arrives frozen and you have to bake it in the oven.)

Back to the table where some of Santa’s helpers are having a bit of fun and frivolity…..

Can you believe I didn’t cook????  First time ever and boy was I glad.  We ordered just about everything from Gourmet 88 and it was absolutely delicious! From the BBQ spareribs and fried shrimp for appetizers to the main dishes… yumminess!  You can see the Christmas Crackers which we popped before dessert and as I was the conductor, with a years practice, found the group to be vastly improved from last years chaos.IMG 1776

After all that gluttony, dessert was simple…….fruit and ice cream.

 This ice cream is my new favorite.
