Some info about our Gourmet Group: We are 4 couples who enjoy cooking, entertaining, and most of all, each other’s company.
We take turns hosting in our homes. The hosts decide on the menu (theme) from appetizers to dessert for the evening. The hosts cook most of the meal, but give at least one course (along with all the recipes) to the other couples to prepare. We love trying new recipes and ideas. So most of the time the recipes are ones we haven’t cooked before, but they don’t have to be.
My husband and I hosted our Gourmet Group last December (2017).
THE THEME AND MENU
A STAR-THEMED TABLE

DINING ROOM CHEST
AFTER-DINNER DRINKS AWAIT…
With it being the holidays, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to give each of our guests a little fun Christmas gift to take home.
Each man received a funny “elf hat” that lit up and played a tune when a button was pushed on it. Gifts were wrapped in a starry paper.
Easy cookie mix for the gals…
Since it was only the 9th of December the women had a couple of weeks to bake them sometime during the holiday season. Men could wear their hats again on Christmas Eve and/or Day.
