Saturday night was my Annual Holiday Party with the Costa Mesa Crew. The party is definitely getting bigger (compared to last year) with two new kids joining the party this year, and the announcement of another. Robin graciously hosted the party again, while i cooked up two versions of Pot Roast, a traditional one with gravy, and another Asian styled one. Unbeknownst to me, was that I basically made Beef Noodle Soup, without the noodles.
Robin made his famous pecan tarts, and a big batch of mussels. Shane and Joann made some spinach and artichoke dip, and mac and cheese. Jen and Andy made the mashed potatoes, while Tiffany and Ben brought some roasted vegetables and some lemon curd cupcakes.
It was fun watching the kids of the same ages interact with each other, and play without too much supervision. Can’t wait until next year when Alice will be a year old and get to play too instead of hanging out on our shoulders all night.
