I thought about having no one at the dinner table ... just a casual sit-in-the-living-room meal but my living room really only has comfortable seating for 9. So it looks like we are going to have to split up. It is definitely not ideal.
But the important thing is that we will all be together in the same house and I'm sure it will work out fine. This will be good preparation for next year's Christmas Eve dinner which I have been told I will be hosting next year - a dinner for twelve!
Speaking of bloopers (well, sort of), Susan from Between Naps on the Porch is having a blogging bloopers party this Saturday. I really love bloopers. I read some of hers and had to laugh; her bloopers are my normal, ha ha. She talks about table settings that are missing things and photos that are not perfect and I all I could think was ... welcome to my entire blog!
Which just fits in perfect with a phone call I received today from a friend who loves my apple crisp and has made it before. She just made it recently and instead of looking up the recipe I gave her years ago, she just pulled it off my blog. Easy right? Well, not if the recipe on the blog is WRONG. So she called to let me know that something was amiss. And sure enough, I checked it out and I had doubled some things but not others. I think that qualifies as a really good blooper, don't you? I have gone back and fixed it on the original post, so please, if you pulled the recipe before, please go back and get the corrected version (which you can get to here). And if you made it and it came out dry like hers ... oops, sorry! And can I just add that all those years that I was a Dental Hygienist (see, now you know something about me that you didn't know before), I could NEVER say oops. That is one of the first things they teach you in dental school... never say oops while you are working on a patient!

Here is Susan's reminder:
Little Reminder...Blogging Bloopers Party:
This Saturday, January 1st, 2011, BNOTP will be hosting the first ever "Blogging Bloopers" Party and you'll get to see some of the bloopers I've made (and sometimes hid) during 2010. Last January, I created THIS post showing some of my Blogging Bloopers from 2009. I asked if you guys had some to share...and the comments left on that post were really funny! :)
