Look at all this gorgeous food! I also made my Green Tea Mojitos - which tasted great but apparently weren't strong enough! Next time - more rum! I'll also get Danette's recipe for her awesome Arugala Salad with warm Squash and Cranberries (out of this world!) and her pasta with artichokes, mushrooms and parmesian cheese...I had two huge servings!
Of course when all the dice have been rolled and all the shouts of "BUNCO" have died down, it comes time to award prizes to the winners (and losers!) Danette and I aren't normal people, so why would we give normal prizes? We made custom Wine bottle labels with our pictures on them. The first one is Danette and I making kissie faces... with a Judy Garland quote "Twas not my lips you kissed, but my soul". The second was Danette and I staring into each other's eyes and the wine label read "For that moment when you fell like you've never felt before...BLUSH" and the last picture was a swirled picture of Danette and I with red-rimmed glasses on. The label said "Rose Colored Glasses. The more you drink, the better we look".
Here are to of the very lucky winners opening their prizes! I didn't get pictures of it because I was laughing too hard, but there were also MATCHING NECKLACES for each bottle! When I saw Freda put on her necklace of Danette and I staring into each other's eyes...well, that was it. Game over. I was rolling on the floor!
Bunco babes...that is my favorite night of the month! Thank you for the laughter, the food and the friendship! I love you all!
