Christmas Party Part One

Had our first Christmas dinner party last week

A terrific foursome to start the festivities
You may recognize Deb and her retired guy

The other couple are dear friends.
Joyce and I get together for a knit occasionally.

We started the evening with a glass of prosecco and cranberry juice.

Dinner was
Cream of Root Veg soup
Lemon Chicken Piccatta
Roasted potatoes
Butternut Squash
Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon
HB mad an awesome little loaf of Rosemary bread

Ending the meal with Individual Raspberry Grand Marnier Trifles
And Chocolates and coffee.

There was lots of conversation about books, knitting, a wee bit of politics, old VW engines, chipmunks, grand babies (Joyce is going to be a first time G ma in February), Christmas festivities .....

After a cleanup in the kitchen

HB and I sat down with a last glass of prosecco looking at our tree and reflecting on how lucky we are to have such great friends
