div style="text-align: center;"span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"Very Merry Christmas to all of you! I can't believe it's been September since I posted anything!  But my daughter got a laptop for Christmas which means I finally have mine all to myself again, so hopefully things will start rolling along a little better now.  /span/divdiv style="text-align: center;"span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"br //span/divdiv style="text-align: center;"span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"But back to Christmas....I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating with people you love, and hopefully some good food to go along with it.  I decided I didn't really want a regular turkey and dressing type Christmas dinner, so we had appetizers.  Because I love appetizers and always feel guilty stuffing myself with them before the main course.  So it only makes sense to just make them the main course.  We had so many good things...pineapple cheeseball, a href="http://www.franksredhot.com/recipes/franks-redhot-buffalo-chicken-dip-RE1242"buffalo chicken dip/a, a href="http://www.kitchenfruitcake.blogspot.com/#!http://kitchenfruitcake.blogspot.com/2011/11/caramel-cream-cheese-apple-dip.html"apple caramel dip/a, and these delicious wings that were new to me.  /span/divdiv style="text-align: center;"span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"br //span/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both;
