We had the loveliest Christmas Eve party, with over forty guests. There was magic in the air as the flutist and cellist played carols. We played Christmas crackers, charm cake, hunt the pickle, peppermint pig and laughed and made merry until well after midnight! The food was delicious and included stuffed grape leaves, hummus and pita bread, artichoke squares, mini quiches, chicken wrapped in bacon, lasagna, strawberry spinach salad, tortellini primavera, cranberry nut chicken salad on freshly baked croissants, cranberry fluff, red velvet cheesecake, eclairs, cream puffs, chocolate trifle, apple cranberry pie, ginger cookies...Now that I am thinking about it maybe it was not the laughter that made my sides hurt so much!!!
