Company is Coming!!!

This little guy has been busy baking.

He got out the Southern Living Cookbook and
got busy making these yummy
Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies.
A big hit with everyone!!!

Chocolate Pecan Chess Pie
from the November issue of Southern Living.
Rich, chocolately and DEE-licious!!!

And, a new tasty treat is the
Chocolate Popcorn -
another Southern Living Recipe.
Popcorn, peanuts and almonds
are coated with a delicious chocolate mixture.
And if you don't eat it all as it comes hot out of the oven,
it makes cute gift tied up in a cellophane bag.

Someone called their "spread" of food
a "Groaning Table".
Loaded with goodies.

The cloche has toys from our childhood.
My cooktop is in the island, so
sweetie made a nice large tray
to fit over the burners so
I can better utilize the area for serving.

The table in the breakfast is set with
my snowman dishes.
(A gift from a sweet friend.)

Oops, I made this pic before
I put the silverware on the table ---
just use your imagination!!!

This Jolly Ole Man
watches me while I'm in the kitchen.

Love the Christmas season
with all the
friends coming for dinner,
fun and fellowship!!!
What a blessing!

Merry Christmas to all
and God's richest blessings
upon you and yours during the coming
New Year.

John 3:16
