2nd Annual EmDes Christmas Eve Brunch

(Posted for Debbie)
The 2nd Annual EmDes Christmas Eve brunch is THE HAPPEN' Christmas party of the season! Please join the whole EmDes crowd at our house on Friday, December 24th at 10:30 A.M. for food, fun and basic holiday mayhem. We will conclude our observation of Advent, sing carols, celebrate, laugh and hopefully see a Christmas play. (Hint to the kids!)

Holiday traditions in this house involves new and different foods. Forget the same old brunch egg dish! This year is the "Make and Grill" your own mini-pizza bar. We will have pre-grilled mini-pizza rounds. Please bring your fav toppings..... pepperoni, mozz cheese, veggies, fruit toppings, anchovies (well not really)...whatever you like on pizza. Folks can build their own pizza and we will grill them to perfection. Kids of all ages love this meal!

All are welcome even if you are unable to bring anything. Really. We mean that! Just come.

Sheri and I will have plenty of mini-pizza rounds and sauce. We will also have coffee, tea, soda etc. Additional food suggestions include fresh veggies, adult beverages, fresh fruit, baked goods and cheeses. (Have I mentioned all are welcome and no one is obligated to bring anything!?)

If you do plan to bring food please post with that information. No fruit cake. Really. We mean that!

So, when I read this post I was wondering Jim, 'why that picture?' I just leared that Deb chose the picture!! Anyone care to guess why that one? You really do have to think like a Deb!! :-)

Debbie said...

Hey EmDes.... our dear friend Sheri does not understand the subtle humor of "The Christmas Story." This is also a person who.... steady now... does not like "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." (Collective gasp!)

Sad isn't it?

AdamBam said...

Ha! This will be a fun Christmas Eve if for no other reason than to see Sheri & Debbie banter! :-]

Debbie - I'm with you here... I've practically got that movie memorized.

I love A Christmas Story...and Monty Python and the Holy Grail!

Good thing my current litmus test for 'friendship' is if a person enjoys at least ONE of the following; coffee, red wine or chocolate. If's likely we aren't gonna be fast friends (o:

sheri said...

What a relief to pass the 'friendship' test on all counts!!
Coffee - indespensible
red wine - nectar
chocolate - essential

On the other hand:
Monty Python - ridiculous
Holy Grail - same thing

uhm, monty python is pretty fantastic although i am a black adder friend myself.

carrie said...

We will bring some apples and feta and some more traditional toppings as well. And probably some booze too.

Debbie said...

Carrie.... exactly what is your theological position on the Holy Grail?

Are you with us?

"And the Lord spoke, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shalt be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out! Once the number three, being the third number be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thou foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it." Monk

carrie said... sorry. Am I still invited? :)

maventheavenger aka jamie said...

so...apparently Debbie is flying her nerd flag loud and proud.

Tara said...

We will be there armed with veggie pizza toppings (bell peppers, onions...) Looking forward to it!

Debbie said...

Carrie can come... she will sit with Sheri. Jamie can come too... she gets to hold my nerd flag. Not too many people get that honor.

Stacey said...

I'm bringing mimosas, brownies, and candied pecans.

We're in with a big bag of mozzarella, mushrooms, zucchini, bell peppers, and black olives. And we're bringing a bowl of Cutie tangerines too.
