A Toast to My Sister
My sister used to make grasshopper pie when I was little. It was my very favorite dessert. As an adult I now realize it was probably because there was liquor in the pie. LOL, just kidding I loved the mintyness and the cookie crust. She is a great baker and I've had many cakes, cookies and treats at her house but she doesn't enjoy the cooking process. Making dinner isn't her ideal way to spend an evening.
For New Year's Eve my aunt and uncle surprised us with a visit. This meant we'd be having dinner at my sister's house (she has all the kids) and when I asked what we'd be having, she said "spaghetti." Sure enough, when I got to her house in the evening she had spaghetti sauce simmering in the crockpot, a tossed salad, garlic bread and there was even wine. Yum!
We had a wonderful time with our family for the celebration and we all managed to stay awake to watch the ball drop.
Thank you to my sister for hosting a great night.
