Dinner Club Christmas Party (Part I)

Mark and I hosted our dinner club's christmas party on Dec 19th. I've been trying to post this for some time now but have had trouble with Picasa. So, here it is. Picasa will only let me post 4 pictures to the blog at a time when I use them, so I'm breaking this up into two posts.
My parents sent me the BEST cookbook ever for my birthday and I made an appetizer from it.

I always hate when I go somewhere and have no idea what food is in the dish. So, my parents got me some really cool place card holders to use. I used the backs of Mark's old business cards to write the name of the food. So many people commented on how great this was!

Here's Mark doing some of the stove top cooking. I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful the new stove is. And the second oven in the bottom is pure heaven when I need to keep things warm or bake at a different temp.

This is another NP coworker of mine, Jean. No idea what we were discussing.

Amy's Best Days said...

Hey! Where in Raleigh do you live? We have only been here since June and being that I was in Birmingham, AL for 12 years before has been REALLY REALLY hard! I thought I was one of those, 'can make it anywhere kind of girls' I was way wrong! Anyway, my name is Amy and we are in North Raleigh. Our neighborhood is a bit strange too.
