A couple weeks ago, I was invited to attend a holiday party hosted by Fresh & Easy. Hubbyman and I dressed up and found a sitter so that we could attend. I’m so glad that we did! It was so much fun and the food was unbelievable! Hubbymany even won one of the door prizes and we each came home with a huge bag of goodies.
I had no idea that Fresh & Easy sold wine. They do and it’s pretty good at a decent price. We enjoyed a wine tasting of several different wines (chardonnay, red, prosecco). I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I like Chardonnay.
I just checked out the Fresh & Easy blog (Nov 24 post) and guess who’s picture was at the top of their post. Ours (along with some other local bloggers)!!! I’m on the far right and hubbyman is on the far left. Check it out!
The favorite dish of everyone at the event was definitely the Eggnog Trifle. I even made it for Thanksgiving and everyone at our supper loved it…even my 6yo loved it!
