Birthday Cheers

Amid the busyness of the Christmas season something big happened – my mother’s birthday. In our family, when your birthday is this close to Christmas, Dec. 22, it’s very important to keep them separate, and by any means you can not give a birthday present that’s also a Christmas present. So this year I decided to do something special and throw a wine + cheese party in our newlywed apartment for my mother and her friends.

The best compliment I could have gotten after the party came from my mom and her brother – My grandmother Mary Ann would have been proud.

And I didn’t get a picture of the best appetizer of the night (because it was gone so fast!) – Daily Chef filet wrapped in bacon. Thumbs up all around. So one more plug – New Year’s Eve party? Sam’s Club has everything you need. 🙂
