And now what we've all been waiting for... the food!
First let me say that I missed (at least) the green beans and the mashed potatoes on the stove. There may have been one more dish on the stove, as well.
I also didn't get any pictures of the appetizers, which consisted of a pumpkin cream cheese dip with ginger snaps and wheat thins, cheese straws, a pepper jelly cream cheese dip, some Saltine-cracker-caramel-chocolate bars, among various nuts and such.
(That's bright light coming in that kitchen window!)
I didn't get any pictures of dessert of which there was a choice of pumpkin pie or pecan pie.
I officially regret not getting a picture of the other people there: Bob, Joe, JoAnne, Larry, and Richard.
