I hab a bad code. As my family puts it, I am cootified. DD#2 had her Christmas lunch yesterday, so in an effort to keep most of the house germ free, I hid out in the den knitting. DD had a friend come early to help out, and they fixed quite a spread! We'll be eating left over cocktail weenies and finger sandwiches until next year. Teenaged girls can put the food away- especially when there are no teenaged boys around- but eight girls cannot eat 15 sandwiches. What you can't see is the punch bowl and dessert- brownies, angel food cake with strawberries and whip cream, and petit fours. My sweet tooth is very happy today.
