Evil Twin, ever the pious one, celebrated in fine style this past weekend and sent this recap:
We had so much more fun this year! We eliminated the people who didn't "get it" (many of my sister's friends), and we had a blast.
This year's contributions:Appetizers:
- Large bag Ruffles potato chips with big tub of french onion dip
- Little wieners in grape jelly/yellow mustard sauce
- Wispride cheese ball
- Tomato soup (Campbell's condensed) w/oyster crackers
- Meat Cake
- Green bean casserole
- Mashed potatoes
- Macaroni and cheese
- Pear/lime jello salad
- Biscuits in a tube
- Carrot cake
- Boston Cream pie
- Peanut butter pie (THIS was awesome!)
The men got to watch basketball, the ladies got to kvetch, and a good time was had by all.
Oh. We had Hubby mix Manhattans for all. Some couldn't dump them into the sink fast enough, but one attendee had three. We didn't make the mistake we made last year, though, when we served Mateus rosé. No one could drink that shit. It was awful!
I have been well and truly shamed. I'd best dig out my cake decorating tools -- looks like I'm making meatcake this weekend. I'll probably pass on the wieners in jelly-mustard sauce, although I'm sure they're (gulp!) delicious.
ET sent some pix, but I'm holding them to post with pix of my offerings next week. Don't lie -- you know you'll be back to check! In the meantime, here's last year's recap to whet your appetites.
