saturday night i hosted our annual christmas party for our group of friends aka omgbff. i pretty much started prepping for the party from the moment i woke up at 9am up until the party in which the first guests began to arrive shortly after 7:30. but had started making gifts for everyone the week before thanksgiving, so i had been looking forward to the party for sometime now. the hor'derve menu consisted of: smoked salmon tartare filled cucumber cups, escargot stuffed mushroom caps herbed garlic butter, roasted red pepper hummus, beef meatballs with a pineapple dipping sauce, herbed goat cheese balls on toast points, 'firecrackers' and cheeses. guests also brought a plethora of good foods for everyone to nosh on. oh and of course we had plenty of wine to drink.
i only took a few photos.. so expect more when dru gets around to it.
This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.
