Holy flew shot batman. I guess mom was right this time, should have gotten that damn flue shot. I was feeling like a flaming bag of poo when new years eve rolled around this year. I decided to have a party months before the big day, and was cranky as anything when it came time to get ready for the party. Usually if I was having people over for a 1940's themes old hollywood party I would prepare everything from scratch, however this year I really just didn't have the strength. So I bought. Yes i'm totally ashamed, but I just had to, and nobody seemed disappointed when the hot apps where coming all night long.
I had little bowls of roasted smoked almonds and whoppers (yes they are still a delicious treat - and way better then their evil cousin maltballs). Two viggie platters with humus and
1:00 was time for the spinach pizzas and chicken fingers - also served with the sweet and sour sauce. I also had a few desserts a plate of chocolate chip cookies with fresh strawberries arranged around them, as well as chocolate macaroons with fresh raspberries. Sorry no photo's too busy hosting.
All the drinks were all in the theme of things and we suggested the order in which the guests drank them. We totally lucked out because nobody got sick, we all just had a jolly good time.
