Party Bread

December did not turn out to be the food month I had planned and I’ve been busier lately than I usually am so I thought to myself, why not steal someone else’s post! Immediately after seeing this post I knew I was making this on New Year’s Day.

What do you think about this beautiful appetizer?

New Year’s Eve will be upon us in six short days. Now, ask yourself this questions: are you properly prepared to celebrate?

If you don’t have all the ingredients to make this Party Bread, then the answer is: no.

You see, I’ve been ringin’ in the New Year with this cheesy, buttery, heavenly bread for as long as I can remember, and I don’t think I could celebrate without it. It is so insanely good; we’re talking blow-your-mind-all-the-way-to-the-moon-and-back good. You won’t even be able to wrap your head around the utter deliciousness of this hot, cheesy bread.

Official Dinner Invitation Plus Dessert Menu

I’m still working diligently on putting together all the menus but I wanted to pause to give the official invite list. These are the people who I consider friends and attended the 2010 dinner or have frequented this blog and commented in the last six months of last year and did not request to have their names removed from the invite list. If your name is here and you don’t want it, let me know. If it is not here and you would like to feast with us, let me know that too. Let Tom know. Sorry if I don’t know your last name.

So I’ve been working on the menus and decided that since cupcakes are so popular or en vogue, I would just make several varieties and let the last course be buffet style. You can have as few or as many as you like. I’ve been practicing with my decorating skills! Here are four of your dessert choices. Cookies and cream, Vanilla with Strawberry Preserves topped with Vanilla Strawberry Buttercream, Chocolate Caramel Cupcake topped with Vanilla Buttercream, Caramel Drizzle and Pomegranate Seeds. I hope this whets your appetite and you are still looking forward to dinner.

Another Dinner Party; An Invitation

After careful consideration and many requests I have decided to host another dinner party — and yes, it is the very same kind of Dinner Party I had last year. Last time I sent out invitations and threw a huge surprise at the end. An unwrapping of sorts. This year I am not sending out invitations. This year everyone is invited (that means a frequent visitor or commentor) not really everybody!

Last year’s dinner was just for people on my blogroll. Several of my more frequent visitors who were not on my blogroll felt left out. I had to create a special meal just for them last minute. If you’ve ever had the honor of hosting a party for family and friends, you know how last minute changes can really throw you off your game. Nonetheless, things went well.

Next year’s party will also have a purpose bigger than just food and fellowship. The dinner party will be on Friday, February 24th and we will have a mini conference on blogging all day Saturday the 25th. If you are coming and have special dietary needs, I would like to meet them. Gluten-free, allergies, vegetarian, vegan, even lactose intolerant.

Air fare is on me. Your job (assuming you accept it) will be to uninvite yourself if you do not want the invitation extended your way. Not that it matters, but I will not be offended if you choose not to partake in this get together.

If you are a little confused, this is a virtual dinner party. Please don’t really show up at my home. I will not be prepared for that unexpected encounter! Many of you are either dating, engaged, or married. Unfortunately my dining room table and my imagination for creating specialized menus is limited. The invitation is just for you and not your significant other.

For comments of course use the comment section, to be removed from the guest list, please use the contact page. Bon appétit.
