..the party's over...it's time to call it a night....

..does anyone remember that song? I don't recall ever actually hearing it except from my Mother when she was being silly.


So, yes, "Mr. B and me " have finished up this year's gathering of the neighbors for 2007.

I think next year we might want to start earlier - seems that the 15th was also a good choice for church parties, programs and other obligations, thus making our party a small-ish one.
But, hey on the flip side, more leftovers for us!

WhoHoo......except........

......who can eat 300 Buckeyes? Or 2 large baggies of White Chocolate- Macadamia- Crasin Bark?
3 various home made dips. Meats & cheeses. Taco soup?



OK, it's a dirty job, but..............

On a more serious note, in the preparing for the party, I found some great EZ recipes for fun stuff......

Crock-pot Candy................... Taco Soup.................crusty-little-breads for the various dips and spreads... Mmmm... Just let me know which ones you'd like and I can post them or email them to you...the recipes, not the food, silly...

I was "in-charge" of deserts. Mr. B loves his kitchen and his cooking, so I pretty much stay out of the way.

I can cook.....I choose not to...hate the "day-to-day" stuff...shopping, preparing, etc. Just to finish and have to start all over the next day?? Ick. Seems he LOVES it...

We used to have this thing that whomever got home from work first would fix dinner.

You have no idea how many times I drove 'round and 'round the block waiting to see his truck pull in first...only to tell him, "Boy, you beat me again.....huh.....what are the odd of that happening for the past 5 days now??"

The party was a success, with Grandma doing Angel card reading for all! Seems my archangel is Michael and he stays pretty close to me. Which is good. I loved the movie Michael and have always known angels were around me, watching and protecting...


It's was uncanny to hear some of the things she "read" from the cards - some need to pay more attention to the health of their bodies, some need to exercise more, some have children in their future (for me, it's my inner-child, who I have discovered is quite a brat....)

It's all in fun, but it does make you think...
Anyway, it's 3:47am and my tummy is letting me know (or is it my angels??) that I should really not consider 14 olives, 3 Buckeyes, 2 nut clusters, 3 slices of salami, one ham salad toast and 2 diet cokes a dinner....Oh yeah, and Taco soup...

So have a wonderful Sunday, enjoy a time of peace and reflection...and listen to YOUR angles...you know you have them, right??
g'night.
-me
ps- THANK YOU madrekarin for the darling "pegs" and heart - you can see they went right to work...

Leave it to you to out them to good use!! What a cute idea. I think I may steal it. Er. borrow. :)
By the way, Taco Soup IS dinner. So everything else you had were just side dishes. Right?

I'm with you on the NOT cooking plan...After cooking dinner for 25 years I told hubby it was his turn...and he fell for it! If I would of known that, well...the taco soup recipe has peaked my interest. Please post it...thanks!
