i made my first pass at grocery shopping for the party last night. here are the things i’m now prepared to make:

* hot broccoli cheese dip. you know that bread bowl thing with a bunch of melted cheese in it that i always make? that thing. yum.

* chocolate chip cookies. i’ve just wanted to make them lately.

* gingerbread.

* s’mores. yep, i’ll light a fire in the fireplace and we can make s’mores!

mmmmmmm. party food!
