Christmas Cookie Swap!

What: December Meal Swap
When: Wednesday, December 15th at 6:30 pm
Where: LHWC
Who: Nine fabulous women...you know who you are!

Please bring 6 cookies to swap per person (so...4 1/2 dozen if you are including yourself). They can be any cookie you enjoy baking for Christmas. Bring your cookies in a large container, and we will divide them up once we are all together.
Make sure you have a container to bring your cookies home in, and also, please bring one copy of your recipe. We'll put them on the table for everyone to check out. Be sure to bring paper and a pen if you want to copy someone's recipe. :)

If you have the time, and want to...feel free to bring a snack to share during the cookie swap. I will provide drinks, plates, cups, utensils. We'll visit, swap cookies, and celebrate the season!

Don't forget...comment on this post with the type of cookie you are baking so we don't have duplicates. Thanks everyone, and I am very much looking forward to next Wednesday!

A House to Warm...

The November Meal Swap brought us to Dana's beautiful new home!

Our group decided to throw a surprise housewarming party for Dana, and we chose the theme 'Warming the House'. Everyone brought creative gifts: warm food, warm scents, warm towels, warm decorations. It was a great party, and neat to see the useful, yet fun gifts. The women in the group, as always, made
delicious food to share, too.

Friends, snacks, celebrating, gifts, laughter, fun (and a freezer full of yummy meals)...a perfect way to "warm" a home. Thanks for hosting Dana!
