Oh wait! I think I hear the Doorbell. . .
**Runs for door with excitement to see if guests are arriving**
(Yes. . . that's my Christmas tree you see. lol.)
Please. . . Come on in, it's terribly cold outside. . .
Look at all the SNOW we got a few weeks ago!!!
I'm just happy that you made it here safely!
Here, let me take your coat and I'll put it in my husband's office. Just a sec. Okay, I'm back.
Would you like something to eat?
Yes? Oh, good. . .
I've baked up a yummy dessert for you.
You don't mind having dessert first, do you?
It's my favorite PARTY PUNCH and the recipe's so simple. . .
Just Mix: One 2-liter bottle of Cherry 7-Up and 1 Can of Pineapple Juice. Yep, that's it!
You can easily double, triple, or quadruple the recipe depending on the size of your gathering. Just pour what you need into a punch bowl and add ice. It goes really fast so you needn't worry about the ice melting and diluting the punch. You could even freeze another can of pineapple juice and toss in some cut up pineapple and fresh raspberries. Just put it in a bundt pan to make a "Frozen Raspberry Pineapple Ring" that you can toss in the punch bowl just as you're ready to serve it. I think I need another cup of punch. How about you?
How are you doing? Good. I'm happy to hear that. It sure has been nice getting to know you a little better. I know you like to sew and I was just wondering. . . Have you had a chance, yet, to make any of my projects from Moda's Bake Shop? Oh, that's great! Which one is your favorite?
If you haven't seen my Moda Bake Shop Recipes you can link to them HERE.
Hey, look who's just arrived, it's one of our Special Guests. . .
**Stands up to Greet and Hug**
Let me introduce you to Melissa Mortenson from Polka Dot Chair. She's such a great person. You'll be friends in no time at all.
Did you know that she's one of the many wonderful Moda Bake Shop Chefs?
It just so happens that Melissa has designed several of my favorite projects. So when you have a minute make sure to check them out at the BAKE SHOP.
I sure hope you saved some room for more FOOD because we're headed on over to Melissa's Dinner Party at Polka Dot Chair. If any of you want to carpool I have enough seat belts for 7 people. Can any of you fit a few in your car?
Oh! I almost forgot! Before we leave. . . I want to THANK ALL OF YOU for coming to my home for dinner tonight. Hey, dessert is dinner. hehehe! lol. It's been so much FUN having you visit and share in the big CELEBRATION!!!
