Christmas Party

Yesterday was my work's Christmas party. Those who wanted to participate played dirty Santa in an ornament exchange which I did NOT think it would ever end. I ended up with an ornament candle which is perfect because I love candles. The ornament above was made by a co-worker, Corrie. She got the idea from Pinterest to take old newspapers to an ornament. What a perfect gift for all of us newspaper bums! :) Got to love Pinterest!

I mainly want to blog for this delicious recipe that Mary made. It was to die for and I can't wait to make it. Definitely a recipe to share. The recipe originally came from my cooking idol, Paula Deen! Sorry Ree. (Like Ree Drummond really reads my blog to see my apology. Just in case she stumbles across it because we're now pals, ya know! Okay, so just because I saw her once at a book signing and couldn't even mumble out the words "Hi" or "So nice to finally meet you" doesn't really make us gal pals, but I like to think so! :) ). Now back to Paula - I love that woman and her southern accent. Wish I could talk and cook like her.
Here's the recipe:

  1. Never know Ree may read our blogs. Maybe we can go to see her next year and you can actually speak to her :)
    Looks like a yummy dish!

  2. Ha! You think I can actually talk to her? I do need my Charlie book signed and I want her new cookbook! ;)

  3. I want to order the Charlie book and the cookbook. Hope we are able to go see her next year!

  4. We will just have to for sure plan on it!! I had so much fun that day. Thank goodness we borrowed the GPS or we would have ended up in IL!!
