Woke up at 6:00 this am (could have slept until noon) and we are off to Ohio to see my parents (they are driving up there separate from us), my uncle and cousin, my sister and my grandparents.
Let me explain why I’m so sleepy…
Here is a recap from yesterday. The husband and I always open our presents Christmas Eve. Then Christmas morning we go to his grandmother’s house and open gifts with his mom’s side of the family. Since we now have our
first only home, we did Christmas with his parent’s and dad’s side of the family that evening.
I’ve been cooking up a storm for two days for this party. When I do a
party get together, I do it right.
Here are some pictures from before the party and the recipes to go with them…
About to crush up the oreos
Oreo and cream cheese mixture
Dipped in chocolate with oreo crumbled on top
Sour cream , cumin, and refried beans mixed together
Layer more sour cream on top
Add shredded cheese
Make it pretty by spreading chips around
I know some people don’t like guacamole or jalapenos, but if it was just my dip I’d add those to it
Red Velvet cupcakes made with egg whites instead of eggs out of the box
Decorated with my new Pampered Chef tools 🙂
It’s all about presentation!
I was so exhausted and happy that my in laws helped clean up.
Then it was off to Ohio to see my grandparents the next morning.
Dug into the Peanut Butter Balls!
We didn’t win 😦
Update: On Monday I won 4 bucks on two scratch offs in Ohio! 🙂
