Sneak Peaks

So I'm having this wee, little party here tomorrow.

Are you coming?

It's gonna be fun!

Under the guise of a "fun, silly, Valentine party" (yes, after the actual day), it's really a "kick the winter-blues party" because the middle of winter is a good time to do such things.

So I spent today making food. Heart-shaped chocolate sandwich cookies which still need to be sandwiched and which (haha) I forgot to photograph. And sheet-quiches, under my Mother's instruction. One of them features dried tomatoes, onions, garlic, basil (all preserved from my garden) and feta cheese (which I made from all the extra summer milk). The other is potatoes, caramelized onions, mushrooms and cheddar. Mmmm...

I prepared a few (dozen) of PW's Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies (and didn't take pictures because I was too tired) because it's a compulsion of mine.

And I sliced up fruit and soaked it in wine as the beginnings of Sangria.

Some of the guests are bringing other delicious nibbles and I'm so glad... because I'm tired.

And I still have to clean the pit house.



  1. The quiche looks FABulous!! YumYum!!

    And Sangria! "Summertime...and the living is easy..."

    You're gonna have so much fun!

  2. wait! i didn't get my invite and now the party is over. ***sob***
