    O.k. Who actually likes mincemeat? I'm going down my list of things I have to bake and I never know how many of the damned things to make.

    I love mincemeat, but unfortunatly i just found out I have high cholesterol :_| so i can't eat anything good, it sucks :( so not sure if i can have mincemeat, probably can in moderation.

    Mincemeat is a combination of apples, rasins, oranges, suet, spices and who knows what else; it goes in pies and tarts. It's an aquired taste which I don't have but I have this genetic need to make the tarts at Christmas anyway. I'll have a batch ready for anyone who wants to try them, and for Liann, who should have told her doctor to run the test in January. [face_devil] (I don't think they're that high in cholesterol, I mean it's only about a tablespoon of the stuff and I use vegtable shortening tart shells.)

    I still don't know when one Christmas party will be so this might change but I'm prepared to tell them to work around this one 'cause they didn't get thier act together.

    Anyone have suggestions on menu? It looks like we have enough cooks to make a pot luck work, then no one person is swamped.

    We should decide on a date soon because this is coming up right away. Nov 27, Jan 1&2 are pretty much out because there aren't many people available.
    what does everyone think.

    Not sure what to suggest for the menu.

    Well, do we flip a coin on who's hosting, :p I'm totally willing to. Looks like the 12th or the 19th. (Steve, can you take a break from studying, I mean you have to eat right? :p)
    We had roast beef last year... anyone have ham issues?

    O.k, I officially claim hosting. [face_devil]
    Connor, you have to offer alternate suggestions :p, what do you like? I can always make more than one thing. I like to cook for parties, it's the everyday stuff I don't like doing anymore. :)

    Sounds good Terry...

    I wouldn't mind Roast Beef again myself... I haven't had it in so long... :(

    We gotta figure out a way to split the costs somehow so that you don't get stuck with the bill, Terry... :)

    Looks good for the 12th then. Anyone who is on the list and needs directions let me know. We'll be having roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and either rosted or twice baked potatoes (depending on how energetic I am). I'm open to suggestions for veggies. Also anyone with food alergies let me know. Liann, if you can let me know what's on the naughty list I'll try to accomidate. (I'm not sure on what's contraband with high cholesterol) :)
