Food and Friends, the Return of
When I wrote yesterday's post about our annual holiday dinner, I searched for last year's dinner story about couldn't find it. It turns out that I never got around to writing about it! So here it is, 13 months late. Last year's theme was the 1950's.
We all contributed dishes from a 1950's cookbook assigned by our hostess. We brought bacon-wrapped SPAM hors d'oeurves. The SPAM was mandatory as a classic 1950's item, and we chose bacon, because who doesn't love bacon?
Yep, they pretty much tasted like bacon, so it worked out fine.

A few gift highlights: I received a charming mini-hat.
While dressed as the Yellow Peril, our friend received the perfect cartoon complement.
The boys were thrilled with the rainbow jello.
From one century to another!
