I'm still alive!

There I go neglecting my blog again! Wow, this time of year is so busy. Last week-end was our open house and it went wonderfully! I was afraid that either no one would come or that everyone would come at one time, but neither happened. We had 87 people over the course of the evening, from 6:00 p.m. to when I ran Yngwie's friends off at 1:00 a.m. (They did help me clean up some). I was having so much fun that I forgot to take any pictures! I am so upset over that, but life goes on. I have the pics that I took just before our guests start arriving.
The top photo and the above are of the dessert island. I will share the recipe for the mint truffles tomorrow, they really turned out good and were very easy to make.

I was afraid that I would run out of food and made waaaaay too much! We have been eating leftovers for 4 days.

I still have alot of Christmas shopping to do, as I put it off getting ready for the open house, so I am going to try and get it done this week during my lunch hour.

Yesterday, we had record breaking highs for our area. It was 74 degrees! I would complain but with the ice storms that are to our west, I would rather have the heat. We are expected to get the tail end of that storm this weekend.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Wow, you had a great turnout! Everything looked absolutely beautiful, and more importantly, delicious! I was wondering what was in the bowl in the top picture at the right?(red and white) Whatever it is I think I would love to sample it:o)

Oh Linda, it all looks fabulous and look at all that wonderful food! Like you, I'm always afraid of not making enough so I tend to overdo it but my mom brought me up saying "rather have too much than not enough":-) Looking forward to the recipe for those mint truffles, they do look delish!! xox
