    Let the party begin. I would like to see Party Platters. That’s fun to say. Try it ten times real quick. LOL The platters will go well with the cocktails. ^_^ Did I miss something? I didn’t realize you had a new release. I don’t see it on Amazon or Goodreads. I love the cover. It is so YOU.

    Hey Bette and Naomi – Appetizers and Crock Pot favorites are my choices. Not saying I don’t love the drink recipes, but mixing it up would be fun, too.

    lol I love that – party platters! Hopeful is a short story I recently wrote as part of HerBooks but it’s going to get it’s own special treatment for BFFs. 🙂

    appies for sure. My favourite thing now that my kids are older is to make up a bunch and have finger food supper. There is no such thing as having enough appetizer recipes. danakburgess@gmail.com

    Hey Bette, I love quick and easy and dinner for two. There is only the two of us now but we do have a once a month Supper/Pictionary get together with two other couples so the quick and easy would be great for when it is my turn to host. I make a lot of one dish meals and casseroles. Have a great Chicken and rice casserole if anyone ever wants it. Just a thought. Love ya bunches and the email I use is: Lsmoore43@yahoo.com
    This will probably show my gmail and I don’t use it much. lol 🙂

    Sofa tailgating. I love it! And of course more yummy drinks:)
    Bette, did you slip a new story past me? Didn’t see it anywhere? I’m keeping an eye out for Jubilee but don’t see A Home in Hopeful?

    Home is part of an anthology I did but it’s also getting it’s own solo treatment. It’s almost ready. I think Jubilee will be done at the end of Oct.

    I just finished reading Mid-Week Mixers, Party Favorites book. I wouldn’t be able to try the alcohlic drinks as hubby and I don’t drink alcohol but, the following recipes sound great!!!!

    Mardi Gras Vegetable Dip
    Bette’s Cheesy Bacon Dip
    Sizzling Hot Appetizers
    Brown Sugar Smokies with Brown Sugar
    Bette’s Bacon crisps
    Jalapeno Popper Cups [my husband would love this as he likes hot & spicy stuff]

    Thank you Bette for this book!!!! 🙂
