Last night was the Christmas gathering for our book club.  Sadly we were missing one of the girls.  She was fighting something icky and needed to stay at home.  😦

My sister hosted last night at her home.  We were able to sit by the Christmas tree and exchange our presents.  This year we were supposed to pick one book to share.  I picked three books by three bloggers.  They were smaller, paperbacks, and I really wanted to share them so I technically broke the rules.  Who cares?  The following are links to reviews on them:

Here’s the cutie pie recipient of my blogger books:

I forgot to take a picture of the cheese plate.  Boo.  The cheese plate consisted of Boursin, olives, manchego wrapped in soppressata and a childhood favorite, cream cheese with pepper jelly on top.  Yummy!  I was introduced to “by-far” the best pepper jelly I have ever been privy too.  It’s made close by at Two Chicks Farm.  Here’s the link to their website.  It’s a sustainable farm.  🙂  Buy their Pepper jelly!

My sister remembered to take a picture of the libations:

I really liked the wine on the right.  Yummy.
