I Will Be Having ...

Yesterday was the final day of Share Our Holiday Table; a virtual, progressive dinner, hosted by Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry. And a bountiful holiday table it was! Today as I took another look at the incredible dishes that have been put before us I thought it would be fun to, as my boys say, "play restaurant." And so I did. And it was fun. Better than a Calgon Take Me Away moment. I dreamily browsed through each Share Our Holiday Table post and ordered a complete 7-course meal! Delish. And so fun.

Here is what I ordered. Oh and by the way, the meal was beyond my every expectation!

What a great idea. There were so many tasty recipes with beautiful photos and it is even better to see them as a complete meal.

Oh, what a great idea to have your holiday meal from all these great bloggers/chefs, Lexie! I'm so honored to be included! I'll be making my Reindeer Antlers punch for a gathering at my house on Friday evening. ;-) Enjoying this meal would be incredible! Hope we raise tons for SOS through the Share Our Holiday Table event!

What a nice way to finish up this wonderful event Thanks so much for including me in your 7-course meal, and I hope we were all able to help raise awareness and funds for SOS, which meets such a enormous need.

Now that is an amazing feast Lexie! Only Shirley would come up with a recipe called Reindeer Antler punch. Gotta love her.


Yes, Alisa. I have a feeling that Reindeer Punch would really get the party going! :)

Lex, this was a brilliant idea!! I love your choices! And how funny that you ordered two because you could not decide. What a great way to end the event. Love the way that creative mind of yours works.


Kim, amazing I have any mind left ... feeling a little bit cooped up this last while. Me and the boys, the boys and me, me the dog and the boys. Well you catch my drift :) Maybe that fosters too creative of a mind!
