We had our annual neighborhood holiday gathering last night, and it was so much fun! (no kids allowed....they play together outside all the time...this one is
all about us taking a
couple of hours
for us.)One family with grown children is kind enough to open their beautiful home to all of us.
We usually all bring an appetizer or two, and/or a dessert. As you can see the counter fills up fast! Look at all of those treats! Stuffed mushrooms, pears with cheese and prosciutto, mini caprese kabobs, shrimp, and much more!
Moonshine Marshmallows Food 52
My husband made these.
It calls for a few tablespoons. We enjoyed the rest.
We brought this pumpkin cheesecake, (using pumpkin from our garden). It was a Paula Deen Recipe. I then drizzled Nestle la lechera dulce de leche (found on the international aisle) across the top.
I use gluten free ginger snaps for the crust. It had a great pumpkin pie flavor.
We also made Shore is Good Seafood Dip, recipe also courtesy of Paula Deen.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo.
It was very flavorful. We made it earlier in the day and then heated for
30 minutes right before heading out.
Our host and hostess made an amazing punch:
It was VERY good.
All in all, an amazing night filled with laughter, friends, games,food and libation.
LOTS of laughter.
It's good for the soul.
Enjoy your week.
