Three Bloggers Enjoy a Christmas Party!

There are great parties.

Then there is great food at great parties

Then there is great music, great food at great parties.

But the BEST is GREAT friends at great parties!!

In case you do not recognize these three women:

Left: Moi! Ladybug Creek
Center: Laura of White Spray Paint
Right: Nancy of Nancy's Notes

Here are just some of the refreshments served
at our Christmas Dance.

I prepared the Paula Deen's
Shrimp Butter

2 sticks butter, room temperature
1 Tbsp. sherry
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 tsp. House Seasoning (1 c. salt, 1/4 c. black pepper, 1/4 c. garlic powder)
cayenne pepper to taste
2 (3 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. onion, chopped (I used green onion)
1 lb. shrimp, shelled, deveined and cooked
Paprika for garnish
Put all ingredients except shrimp and paprika into a food processor. Process until well mixed. Drop in shrimp and process until pureed or chopped to desired consistency.
Garnish with paprika. Serve with crackers as an appetizer.

I added a few drops of Tabasco sauce.
