Christmas Dinner Party

It has been a lovely Sunday! A 'guilt free' Sunday as our pastor, Ed Young, says!
That's because we attended the Saturday evening service.
He also says - about the ones who attend on Sunday morning - they enjoy a guilt free Saturday! Win! Win!!

Louis Dean made 'Biscuit/Rolls' today.
I asked him to make BISCUITS but he came up with his own idea.
All I have to say is that hot buttered bread and a glass of wine makes for the perfect light lunch!

Tonight we had a small dinner party and a music session.
We all had a good time eating, visiting and making good music!

I pretty much know everyone had a good time because we sat around the dinner table long after the meal was done. One friend told about his daughter being in a recent episode of Law and Order......her first acting job! Another told of the home repair nightmare that was as hilariously told as it was horrifying! We discussed both the forbidden dinner table subjects - politics and religion - and had a ball doing it!
Good comfortable - yet stimulating - conversations.

The meal was good......

and coffee and dessert was even better!

This is a jazzed up cake mix recipe.......
white cake mix
1 1/2 cups of Irish Cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 box instant pudding - I used butterscotch
1 cup butterscotch chips

The frosting is Irish Cream and Confectioners sugar.

NOT heart healthy NOR diabetic friendly!
But it was delicious!!!

I see some salads on the menu for tomorrow!

Good Friends!
Good Food!

Oh no, time to get ready for work. I have to unwrap myself from your cozy Christmas quilt, fold it, and place it on the virtual shelf until I visit once again! Loved dinner, the music and I'm going to make the cake for my Irish girlfriend, Alice!
Merry Christmastime!
