Things have been hectic the last few days. I had a wonderful holiday party here on Friday with our Italian Dinner Club. 18 people in attendance. We had a great time! I haven't been prone to card making this week, though, as I've spent time getting ready for the party. Also, winter weather makes it a little harder to convince myself to get to the basement to work. I much prefer a good book in front of the fireplace. However, I got some new toys in the mail yesterday, so maybe today I'll play just a little.
For the dinner party, I made a fabulous dessert from Kraft's Food and Family magazine: triple-chocolate mousse cake. Fabulous! I do recommend, however, that you warm both the cream cheese and milk before using for the mousse part. I didn't have mine warm enough at room temperature (since the air temp is much cooler this time of year), and my chocolate seized. I had to dump it and start over. But it ended up coming out perfectly! And it looked just like its picture.
