New Years Day Open House!

We as usual are hosting an open house at the parsonage again this year.

We do this for a number of reasons, one it gives the folk of our Church an opportunity to come over to our home. Second, WE LOVE COMPANY!!!! Third, I love cooking lots of food and sharing it with good friends!

So, lets cut to the chase - here is the menu:

#1. Chicken Wings - I'm making chicken wings on the smoker and offer a choice
of sauces such as "Cookies Wings & Things"; "Cookies BBQ Sauce"; "Famous Dave's Sweet & Sassy Sauce" or you can eat them ... plain! A little something for everyone.

#2. Martha's Famous Clam Chowder - We were up early today cutting up vegies and rounding up plenty of nice juicy clams. This is a favorite with Lynn and I, most of our kids like
it but they like to tease me calling it "rubber-band soup"! There are quite a few of our church folks that like this as well and some who will not even try it! Oh well, more for me!

#3. Cucumber Salsa - This is a wonderful taste adventure if your a salsa lover. You get a cool cucumber taste followed be a warm salsa rush. So very easy to make and almost everyone really enjoys this appetizer!

#4. Corned Beef Brisket - What would the New Years Holiday be with out corned beef on bagels? It would just not be right! So, this morning I put three briskets in the oven and this house smells WONDERFUL!!!

#5. Cookies and Candy - per as usual this time of year, you have the platter of cookies and candy. This is honestly not at all my favorite, but knowing that others really love these goodies they are on the menu as well.

That is the menu - I hope it looks good to you! Have a great time with your friends and family, enjoy the time and the good food at your celebration!

PS: Recipes are avaible upon request!

Steve: Your menu sounds great! Sorry I'm so far away. I'm the chicken wing king here. I use "Williams Mild Teriyaki Seasoning" and they are the best. "HAPPY NEW YEAR"

Thank the Lord I'm not there. That clam chowder smell is intolerable.

We are having chili and potato soup at the Nichols Ranch. And it smells delicious.
