Lots and Lots of Food!

The party was a big success! Although our numbers were much lower than we were expecting, I think everyone who came had a nice night! Last night was also the big Anesthesia department formal party, and the roads were a little slick, so that may be why we had less people. Two couples actually came in their formal clothes and left early to go to the other party afterward. Most of us were wearing our ugly sweaters and jeans but one guy had on a tux!

This is what I made...

 Meatballs in the crock pot-surprise-it's a purple crock pot-imagine that, me having a purple crock pot!

 Smoked turkey and roast beef roll up sandwiches.

 Sausage and cheese-there was a huge platter just as big of crackers too.

 Christmas tree shaped cheese ball and crackers.

 Spinach dip

 Cream cheese salsa dip.

 Veggies and dip

 Layered Greek dip-YUM! This recipe is a keeper!

 Ham roll ups with dill pickles and green onions.

 Baked Crab Rangoons-they didn't turn out as well as they usually do.

Little pigs in a blanket

A red velvet Christmas trifle-my mint leaves were really floppy and didn't make it look very appealing!

I forgot to take a picture of the swiss cheese dip and the bacon wrapped water chestnuts-they were a big hit! Others brought dishes to pass and we had a giant fruit platter, a fruit torte, fresh shrimp and cocktail sauce, a giant bowl of candy, some homemade oreo truffles-YUM! some crab dip, a couple of cheese cakes and some homemade candy! Every inch of counter space was taken up with food! No one went away hungry-that's for sure!!

One lady asked some questions about my Fiesta, but for the most part, no one was really interested in all of my vintage treasures. I'm surprised. How could you not love all the bright vintage goodness?!? Maybe if I would have put up the big 6' silver tree right in the middle of the sun room, I would have gotten more of a reaction.

Last night I got a facebook message from my brother in law-he is coming over today to help eat some leftovers! Hope he doesn't mind us not entertaining him today-we are all pooped and just planning to crash after I run some stuff to the booth and straighten it a bit!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I plan to spend some serious couch time catching up on everyone's blogs as soon as I get home!!!

Have a Merry Christmas if I don't get a chance to say it later!!


  1. Don't know where you got any energy to go to your booth and add stuff after such a huge food prep and party last night. Great spread !

  2. That's a lot of delicious looking food there, all fat free right, (lol). Take a couple days, kick your feet up and get ready for next weekend.

    Merry Christmas

  3. I want to eat all of these wondeful treats!

    Too bad not all people shoed up!

    Merry Xmas :)
