Can we have a party instead of making 20 plates of 20 different kinds of cookies to deliver to unsuspecting friends and neighbors? Even if it is during one of Durham's only snow storms? YES! And we did.
I love a good party. And good people make a good party. We had plenty of those and some good food, too. Which never hurts. Top the party off with brilliant white elephant gifts and a rousing Eggnog toast (toast as in clanging glasses not crispy bread) and after everyone's gone home in the slush outside, kiss each other under the withering mistletoe while you snack on the table remains and already begin to dream of next year's bash.
Merry Christmas! Go here for a peek at the menu.
