First of all - Carolyn is the hostess with the mostess! Every year -- she gathers her friends together for her annual Christmas Ornament exchange party! I don't get to see some of these wonderful ladies -- but once a year at Carolyn's party.
I told her way back after my first party -- that she has the best and truly lovely group of friends -- I still believe it to this day!
I don't have much time to work on the pictures I took last night cuz I'm meeting my friend Elizabeth for a tour of Sheppard Air Force Base -- so I thought I'd hunker down and at least get a few pictures off!

Before I close, I want to give Becky a huge cyber hug and thank you for the bread making book and tools! I made the Roasted Galic Potato Bread from the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day book that she gave me -- and it was a hit!!!! The bread was moist and flavorful, and the crust was chewy/crunchy.
I made an extra loaf for Rick -- and when I got back from the party -- he told me that he had to pull himself away from the bread -- in order to save me a piece!!!! Woo hoo! You can't imagine how thrilled I am that I can now --- finally --- make bread! This is the third recipe I've made from the book -- and all three came out looking good and tasting great! If you know someone who likes or would like to make homemade bread -- order them a copy of this book. You'll be their hero (and hey -- you might even get a loaf or two)!
Have a great Tuesday -- and check back later for more pics from last night's party!
Take care -- Fraces
