It's Party Time!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

It's almost time
the Ultimate Blog Party 2009
hosted by
5 Minutes for Moms
March 20-27th, 2009

Stop by the main party page and follow links to find some new and of course fabulous blogs for and by women for your browsing pleasure.

In honor of the Ultimate Blog Party 2009, hosted by 5 Minutes for Moms, I'm offering a variety of party foods for your selection.

For your liquid refreshment, we have sweet tea, unsweetened tea, and eggless eggnog. Anything stronger will be strictly BYOB, but you have to give us your keys first.

We have a variety of dips and spreads including two different cream cheese and crabmeat spreads here and here, as well as classic spinach dip. These are all delicious with our homemade seasoned snack crackers. For you corn chip lovers, we have the best queso dip.

Moving right along, we have the ever-popular cocktail wieners in secret sauce, and meatballs with a surprise inside.

For your sweet tooth, we have a cookie platter with chocolate chip, peanut butter, and snowdrop cookies. Also on our dessert table is my world-famous poppy seed cake, as well as crustless baked cheesecake.

I hope you have a good time at the party; please come back and visit us anytime, as well as my regular blog, A Virtuous Woman.
