For our potluck I brought some of the best Foie Gras pate (from Cafe Rolle), Corn Cakes w/ Lime cream and pico de galo, and the fixins for fish tacos. Mare brought Walnut red pepper dip w/ pita chips, ribeye steaks, Chris brought chow mein, various sausages and ribeyes, Karen brought a mushroom pate w/baguettes, brownies and a ribeye for her husband Gil, the Leungs (Mare's parents) brought a 24hr salad and Mrs. Leungs famous Chocolate marble chiffon cake, the Tsukiji's (Nance's parents) brought a strawberry cream bar and cake. The reason for all the ribeye steaks is because it is a BYOM(bring your own meat) so needless to say, there was plenty of steaks and everything else. We all sat around and ate a laughed and drank and ate and drank and ate... OMG! It was so much fun.. Nance and Karen are into the Stamp it Up thing so Karen made us a cute remembrance card and Nance made cute thank you favors to take home.
Thanks everyone for the good food and champagne and company.. and Nance and Mike for hosting again. Can't wait until next year.
