Last weekend I hosted my annual Gingerbread House Competition, and boy was it the best one yet! I started this tradition a few years ago after a friend of mine that had hosted for a few years moved away. I just love the tradition and decided to keep it with my friends and family.
I decided to go light on the food this year, as we are usually to busy being into the “competition” of the party. I thought a Bruschetta bar would be fun and easy! Not to mention it cuts down on utensils. I personally made the Bruschetta, and Olive Tapenade. The Pimento Cheese was from Zingerman’s as they are the best! I made way to much food as usual, but I’ve had fun taking the leftovers this week for lunch. 🙂 The hot chocolate bar returned and was a big hit as usual, if you want my Mamaw’s recipe it’s here.
I thought everyone did a fantastic job on their houses! They’ve got me wanting to step up my game for next year. I was sitting next to my friend Anne that night and was so amazed at the things she was pulling out of her bag, she definitely brought her A game, and I was so pleased that she was the one who won the Zingerman’s Gift Card!
Which house was your favorite? I am spending my weekend at Church volunteering for the Glory of Christmas and then finally attending the Glory of Christmas on Sunday Afternoon! Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
