Rice Night is one of the highlights of the Christmas season. Our dear friends Steve & Grace host the coolest event where we all bring a favorite dish from our childhood. Steve spends hours cooking this glorious, custardy, Scandinavian rice topped with a generous pat of butter and cinnamon. YUMO! I always bring my Swedish meatballs and my friend Barb brings her homemade lefse to wrap around the meatballs. Such a fun, festive night with our dearest friends. Here Steve and John are prepping for the Tom & Jerrys that add to the holiday cheer. Cheers!

Ok, I have got to set the record straight. Those were not my baskets of beer seen in my birthday post below! I had no idea what were in those baskets that Miranda and I were seated next to! We were having lunch at the Duck & Decanter in Phoenix and decided to enjoy our lunch in the loft where they deplay all their gift baskets. So you can imagine my surprise when many of you took note of the contents!! Too funny!
Btw, Duck & Decanter is a great place to do your Christmas shopping. Very unique, one-of-a-kind gifts.
