My cousin and I are hosting our first holiday party next saturday, and the pressure is on! We decided to go easy and fun: A big pot of chili with a bar of toppings, and a couple of my fabulous homemade pizzas. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and honestly, I think my pizza might be the reason James proposed.
So what’s so “holiday” about chili and pizza? Well nothing, really. But we’ll make it that way. Add to it some fun appetizers (including interesting cheeses, of course) and some fabulous desserts (who doesn’t love pumpkin pie and christmas cookies) and there you go.
Ok, still not convinced? Egg nog, rum, a few wines… Now really, I’m not one of those people that likes to take the easy way out when it comes to parties and cooking. But when you have a full time job, sometimes you just have to go with “fun” so you don’t pass out from the fury of cooking Saturday morning.
Anyways, the real point of holidays, after all, is presents… err.. I mean family. Totally kidding. The party is going to ROCK, especially since all my favorite people will be there.
