Virtual Dinner Party Tomorrow

Morning Erection’s Second Dinner Party
Tomorrow Friday, February 24th, 7:00 pm

Invitations were expressed in December and preparations are almost finished. Remember to bring your appetite and nothing else to my second virtual blogger dinner party. There were 38 invitees which means 38 different main course menus. Everything will be prepared and ready to go and dinner will be served promptly at 7:00 pm.

Please be honest and let me know if you do not like what I have prepared for you. My skin is relatively thick so it won’t bother me. This is all for fun anyway although I really think it would be great to meet all of you.

If you would have wanted to be invited and were not, you can still show up. Just don’t be too late or you can count on being the ones stuck with cleaning the dishes. Tomorrow you can choose the Unexpected But Invited Menu.

Invitations Were Extended To:

Yuuki Chan, Judy Santiago, Blaga Todorova, Brittany, Mariana, TheRealSharon, Rose Reynolds, Cherlyn Cochrane, Mai Mergili, Michelle Teoh, Chris Ferrell, Te’Kia Miller, Paul Orr, Iron Cook Carl, TemptingSweets, Noeleen, Addielicious, Deborah Bryan, Ev, Sylvia Garza, Prinsesa Musang, AnonymousBurn, Isadora De La Vega, Janie Blim, Lisa, Kat, Melinda, Giovanna, Chris King, Jia Xin, Seth Winternight, SeeNote, Kara, David (1MereMortal), Kim Koning, Irish Precious, Ina, and Ruth Ligget

No alcoholic beverages will be served as I want everyone coherent and ready for an enjoyable evening of conversation. I hope to see you all tomorrow evening. I just have one question for you guys… Where are my sous chefs?


Mai Mergili, an Asian student living in Germany and who wrote a guest post for a guy in America that will be published this Saturday. Mai has many passions but she is most passionate about photography, fashion and music. Mai is only sixteen and was very willing to be my guest blogger when I asked. I can assure you that you will enjoy her post. Come back this Saturday after you are finished eating Friday’s dinner. In the meantime, spend some time reading her blog, Pencil Pillow.

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.

Dinner Party Invitation

Yuuki Chan, Judy Santiago, Blaga Todorova, Brittany, Mariana, TheRealSharon, Rose Reynolds, Cherlyn Cochrane, Mai Mergili, Michelle Teoh
Chris Ferrell, Te’Kia Miller, Paul Orr, Iron Cook Carl, TemptingSweets, Noeleen, Addielicious, Deborah Bryan, Ev, Sylvia Garza, Prinsesa Musang

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.

Christmas Food & Family Traditions

The sense of smell is a strong catalyst for remembering moments from the past. Fond memories of Thanksgiving at your grandparents can be conjured up by the smell of an apple pie or the aroma of hot chocolate can bring back memories of a week in the mountains with family and friends.

For me there is a smell in the outdoor air that has a “it’s gonna snow” smell to it. You might know what I mean and you might not, but when I smell that, whether or not it is supposed to snow, has me remembering all the Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners I had as a child. These are the times when all the additional sections of the dining room table have been added and the card tables have been pulled out so the kids have a place to sit and eat. When even though family members were packing the house and bringing whatever their assigned dish was, the overpowering smell was the cinnamon from the still baking apple pies. I was blessed with a wonderful family. From my nuclear family to the extended family as well as my new found blogging family. Our get-togethers have never been the kind of fiasco you’ve seen in movies. Thank God! Although, it might have been fun to have an Aunt Bethany say grace like in Christmas Vacation!

What food conjures up images and memories of Christmas past for you?
