Good eats, good friends, good times...


What a month it's been and it's only the 12th of December!  We have gotten to know so many wonderful people in this town and have been invited to SO many parties and functions that we've been on the go constantly, or so it seems!  And tonight is our turn, my honey & I are hosting our first Christmas Caroling party ever tonight!  This is something I've often dreamed of doing.  Having come from a military background, I haven't had the opportunity to do this in a cold climate (climate is an important part of the dream).  I suppose we could have done it in Germany both times that we lived there...  but somehow it just never happened.  So, anyhow, tonight is the night and we hope that this will become an annual event. 




 I have planned, some food and drinks that should help warm us all up after being outside in the cold.  I've got hot spiced cider and Gluhewine (German Wassail) and spicy hot cocoa.  Plus I'm making Panettone bread pudding with an Amaretto sauce.  AND, I FINALLY made the Martha Stewart recipe for Marshmallows, and they turned out beautifully!  I even played around with coating a few with chocolate and boy let me tell you the pleasure it gives in the mouth...... YUM!  So much so that I made another batch this morning, (since I ate more than I should have last night, sheesh).

Tonight we'll be going caroling and enjoying our friends and food and fulfilling yet another dream of mine in this wonderful little town we call, home......
