Last night, Mike & I went to his company Christmas party at the country club. Mike recently changed jobs so this was my chance to meet some his new co-workers and their wives. It was one of the nicest company parties we've been to. His co-workers were very welcoming and the food was fantastic. Only the managers and their wives were invited so it was a very intimate setting.
When we left for the evening we received this lovely gift set from the owner and his wife.
There is a very nice stock pot in the center and it is surrounded with chili bowls. The tray is filled with a variety of chili & soup mix, cornbread mix, cocoa mix, coffee mix, a chili cookbook, casserole cookbook & much more. It was so much fun opening it up and checking out the contents.
It was a hard to decide what to cook for dinner tonight, but I finally settled on a chicken chili recipe from the chili cookbook. It's cooking at this very moment and smells incredible. Looks good too...
I'll let you know how it turns out soon. It may be fun to make up some recipe cards for it and share later. That's something I haven't created before.
Well, I'm off to make some jalapeno Indian cornbread to eat with our chili...
Here's to a wondrous CHRISTmas week to you all! Pamela
