It felt very 1960's-ish to say that out loud. "I am having a tupperware party, please come out to the house at 9:59 am."
I had a party just to get THIS......
It is one of the only things my husband looked at me and said, "I don't care how much this thing is, buy a new one."
Those of you who know my husband know he does NOT say things like this.
We use this chopper for salsa the most - mmmmmmmm, fresh salsa in the summer! - but also for zucchini for zucchini bread, diced itty bitty so the boys don't taste them onions, making jam.....
I use it ALL the time.
So Sandy suggested I just have a party to see if I could get it for free and a Tupperware party just sounded....retro.
I do not like to have parties...at all...so this was rather surprising I would even agree to such a get together. Add to that that I don't even know Sandy (the hostess), everyone was really even more surprised. But as the party came closer and closer, I got more and more excited. I made lists and lists of possible foods for the party.
I wanted lots of friends to come....
For the simple reason I wanted them to be here at the house with me.
I honestly didn't care if a single one of them bought anything - and thank you greatly to all who did because thanks to you I'll get my chopper at a discounted, if not free, price - but I was just so happy to have everyone here.
I was going to take pictures of us all.......and forgot.
Totally bummed about that.
Today was all about spoiling my friends with any food I could think that would be spoil worthy. I made princess punch (found on pinterest...which rocks), pots de creme via the Pioneer Woman, Krusteaz cranberry orange muffins with added white chocolate chips, lemon bars and had a dish of fruit and fruit dip (the good fruit dip, with marshmallow creme).
It made me think I should have a party with just my friends and good food sometime. It is SUCH fun. And a party like that, that would be a little 1960's-ish, don't you think? Sometimes, in the fun and convenience of facebook, twitter, email, passing each other quickly...we miss the friendship.
And the friendship...that's what helps make life so sweet.
