Our Ladies of Grace theme for our Christmas brunch on Tuesday was Christmas Around the World with tables decorated in accordance with our choice of country or locale. I chose Mexico because I thought it would be easy!! Ha! It actually turned out all right. I bought a sombrero and made colorful flowers from tissue paper the way we used to do in high school for floats! A red tablecloth, a balloon, and poinsettia plates and napkins completed my decorations!
As always, the party was potluck, with everyone to bring a dish that tied in with the decor of their table. I don't cook a lot of Mexican food, (maybe a taco sometimes), but I found a recipe on Pinterest for Cheesy Chicken Enchilada soup. DH had been warned that morning that the leftovers would serve as his lunch, but he did not have to worry because it disappeared very quickly.
which meant dirty rice and sausage!
From the Northern States
Swedish meatballs and noodles
My favorite - beans and cornbread!
Greek salad and pita bread
An Indian dish which name I am unable to tell. ;-(
We have such a wonderful group of ladies for our Tuesday morning Bible study. Our gift exchange was the fun story of Mr. Wright and his family, with the back and forth and back and forth, which always causes confusion and brings lots of laughter!
Laughter is good medicine.
