Tomorrow is Mr. Potts & my 2nd Annual Holiday party. Although this year, it is with a few twists. We're having it in January, because, well, December is so stinking busy! Not only that, but people tend to hibernate in January and we thought this would be a great way to get our friends together in the new year.
Our second twist involves a Bad Gift Exchange. This is where people will bring the worst gift they received at Christmas. You know the one - the full face ski mask that your sister gave you even though your average temperature in the winter is the high 40's. How about that holiday decorated candle holder that doesn't go with anything you own - not even your Christmas stuff? Mmm hmmm...should be interesting.
The most important part of our party however, involves food & drink. Obviously. :)
Bartender P will be coming by in the afternoon to set up his mobile bar in our garage - we're putting in space heaters for him & the smokers. Aren't we wonderful hosts? He always comes up with creative names for our parties. Last year my fave was a yummy pink drink - I can't remember it all, but it was SO good!!
I'm planning our menu right now for heavy snacks. What do you think? Anything that you LOVE that is easy to make that you don't mind sharing with me, I'd love!!
Roasted vegetable tapenade with garlic jalapeño bread
Spicy Sausage balls - made with chipotle cheddar cheese
Black bean & corn salsa with blue corn tortilla chips
Cheese ball with assorted crackers
Meatballs - in a sweet & spicy marinade
Some sliced cheese & crackers
What do you think? Should I add anything?
