(Us Ladies who put this all together)
Our 3rd Annual Christmas Dinner is almost here!!! (dEC 26TH, 2009)
LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!-->
22 MORE DAYS
Every year me and the ladies get together and invite a few of our close friends & whip up something special in the kitchen for all to share. We started this tradition a few years ago and we're on our 3rd one. Our first dinner we made a bunch of different things from lasagna, meat balls to Kentucky Fried Chicken. A little bit of everything with way too many desserts. It was a sweets overload.
( 1 Annual dinner- so much food)
Our second dinner we tried to be a bit more focused and had a Mexican theme. We made chicken Mole, Empanadas, Rice and of course many desserts. To our surprise all the food turned out to be tasty. The only downfall was all of us scrambling in the kitchen preparing many dishes and my brother leaving early because he was sick.

This year we're going the Asian route. Making egg rolls, fortune cookies and lots more surprises. It will be a huge success if all the invitees show up, nobody feels ill and everyone sits down and enjoys a nice meal and good company. Oh yeah, and can't forget, SECRET SANTA! I already bought my $15 max. gift.

Anyone have ideas on traditional Asian dishes to make?
