It’s our weekly Thursday Night Social time ~~~
Happy “Friday Eve” ~ hope you’re having a GREAT week! This is my favorite cocktail hour, and here are some things I’ve seen this week that looked especially good for the weekend!
As usual, let’s start with a cocktail, shall we? And as I’ve been in a professional seminar all week ~ and there was math involved ~ I am totally ready for a cocktail. Y’all know the kind of drinks I like, so here we go ~
This Pomegranate Champagne Sangria sounds perfect for the holidays from thecookierookie.com ~
And this Poinsettia Cocktail from 2beesinapod.com looks holiday festive and the rosemary garnish is genius!
Toasted Ravioli is one of my go-to recipes whether for a party or just a game day spread. Everyone likes them and they are super easy. This version from foodnetwork.com will be welcome on any table ~
Any southern hostess has a favorite recipe for Sausage & Cheese Balls. They’re great for breakfast, as an appetizer or really any occasion. Try this one from shewearsmanyhats.com ~
And the most classic of southern party pantry staples ~ Hot Pepper Jelly! Make it into spreads, dips or serve as is on the side. This peach version from howtohaveitall.net sounds perfect for so many uses ~
Are you ready for Christmas next week? Me neither! Still some wrapping, crafting and baking to do before hitting the road for the holiday. I will definitely want one of these cocktails and a nibble or two to get it all done. 🙂
This is the last official Thursday Night Social of the year, as the next two Thursday’s fall on Christmas and New Year’s, but I may have to sneak in some New Year’s cheer before the ball drops on 2014! Thanks for hangin’ out with me on Friday Eve and I hope you have some new ideas to drink, eat and style around your holiday plans! Cheers y’all ~~~
