So then on the 8th the eating began. Julie's work dinner at Buca di Beppo. Way too much food for even the dozen people who were there. Thus began the eating frenzy that is december.

This was continued two days later at Stephanie and Mark's Christmas party. They provided enough food for 40 people yet Stephanie fretted the whole time that there wasn't enough and that people weren't eating enough. The baked goods alone rivalled any church bake sale anywhere.

All the food was delicious and I don't have enough room on this blog to list it all. And then when we were all full Staphanie asked me, "How many pork loins should I make, two or three?" I think at that point she had chanelled my Nana B. It was a fun evening all the way around.
