Red cookbook

I know...all of ya'll are relishing the last moments of Summer...or dreamin' about putting your Autumn displays out. Me, I just bought a RED Christmas Cookbook. It seems to be the 2008 Southern Living edition that they want me to buy for $30 starting any minute now I'll start getting mail about it for 2009. I found it this weekend when baseball wonder was warming up for his tournament play. Isn't she pretty? They also had right next to her the So. Lvg Christmas season book that had decor and meal planning for 2008 . I looked thru both and made my choice.
this gorgeous chocolate cake page with reindeer reminds me of a post I saw recently where one of us dish lovers showed an Easter/Spring table and she had a Lindt bunny in the bowl for each guest...bunny love! I'll be looking for those deer in the special Christmas candy section at Wal-Mart this year and surprise the guys at dinner one night.

This red beauty has Winter Waldorf salad in it...great idea. Can you imagine getting that set in front of you at a Winter gathering? Cinnamon stick and all.

We have a Trick or Treat block party every year in my driveway and my next door neighbor makes chili and we all love it. I would love to look at this page and plan a fall block party or hubbys work group over for chili because we have trickled off the TorT night. I also hope to have oldest' friends over to watch some UT football games, so I may do that???
Sold for a bargain!! Happy Rednesday gang...I'm off to get lil' fella ready to go see Dr. I got a call from the nurse at his school yesterday 30 minutes before bell rang...can I come get him...he's got FEVER. Not only that....sore throat...cough...headache. Oh My...1st day!
Well, go check out all the fuss at the other blogs. xox!
