Today, we have to put up some Christmas Decorations to prepare for a party for my husband's office. We volunteered our home on Dec 14 and the food is catered so I don't have to cook anything. I will cook my famous Golden Fruitcake which is absolutely delicious, even if you don't like fruitcake! I've had people cut hunks of it off to take home from a party and it makes a large round cake with a hole in the center. It will be my table centerpiece.
Last night we attended a party at my sister's and it was fabulous. She did all the food herself and she is a gourmet cook. The roast beef was delicious and so was the punch made from champagne and 5 different liqueurs. It is the kind of punch that sneaks up on you. One of the best things she made was called prune surprises! You insert a whole almond into a prune and then wrap it in bacon and bake. They are best straight out of the oven and good for what ails you. Already worked for me when I got home last night.
They had hired a piano player for 3 hours and we sat and sang Christmas Carols that last hour. It was fabulous and a great party!
There is no way I could count any WW points last night. I'm sure I used up my whole flex allotment but back on today. Tomorrow evening is another potluck party and I honestly don't feel like drinking anything so diet coke is the norm. And I am bringing some kind of veggie. Then we are not partying again until Thursday, next Sunday, Tues, Wed, and Thursday. Major parties to go to. Just need to hold my own for the holiday! Have a great day!
