They match our invitation design which was a martini glass with holly.
I was worried about having enough food but as usual I have plenty of leftovers - enough to host another party! The big hit on the buffet table were the prociutto and fontina pinwheels. I'm going to share this easy recipe with you now. I found it in Food and Wine magazine and they look so elegant, I was sold however when I read the ingredient list (three things) and the fact you can make these ahead of time and keep in the FREEZER and then bake from FROZEN! Hello! That is perfect party food!
Just look how the pastry puffs up nicely and the cheese melted with the meat and pastry. They are wonderful warm right out of the oven and equally good once they cooled. They were really really good.
The sun is shining on this Sunday with a high of 75 in Austin. It doesn't feel like Christmas, but look what Santa brought us!
When I found out that a keg of beer comes in a trash can I told Jim that I have to do something to decorate and camoflauge the trash can at our cockatail party. This was my solution - wrap with pretty fabric and tie with a bow. Jim's idea was to add the gift tag. Isn't that cute? We still have Firemans Four beer left in the keg so we are having a "finish the keg" get together today so we can float the keg and maybe serve some of the party leftovers to free up the fridge.
