OK, this week we are supposed to write about Christmas parties! But I haven't given any yet or even gone to any.
I wonder if it's my poor table manners?
Hopefully there will still be a party or two in my immediate future but I'm gonna have to cheat a bit here and go backwards in time to share two of my favorite party ideas with you. Gotta warn ya, though, there are lots 'o pictures so you might want to get comfy.
The first is a graham cracker house making party. Hey, we're lazy and gingerbread can be really hard to work with! We found out, though, that graham crackers (get the cheapest ones) can be heated in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then they become soft enough you can use a serrated knife to cut the roof angles without breaking them.
This other little party idea is a progressive dinner party we have with a small group of Master Gardener friends. We're supposed to decorate our table with things from our gardens and since roses and citrus are so plentiful in December that's what I used. I think it turned out quite pretty.
And those are my two party ideas!
If you want to read about other parties check out Red Writings McLinkey for this event by clicking anywhere on this long, dragged out sentence!
And the drawing for the lemons will be mid-afternoon tomorrow. My little name drawer is at pre-school until 1:30 tomorrow but I'll have everything ready for her when she comes home!
You know you're from Arizona when.........
