I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. I have been enjoying the holidays in California with Greg’s family and my mum. I was completely spoiled by everyone Christmas morning and had a great time getting to know the Johnson family. Now that Christmas has passed, we have one last holiday for 2011; New Years Eve! We haven’t decided on a plan yet, but I’m sure most of you are ready to celebrate and watch the ball drop. To bring in the new year, here is a roundup of my favorite appetizers for 2011. Eat, drink and be merry! See y’all in 2012!
