It's the sound of a can opening!
Tonight is my annual Caker Christmas party! Aside from having to listen to the unsolicited commentary by my Italian partner ("Those lights better not scratch the wall!" "I can't believe there's a half a cup of oil in this!"), everything is running as smoothly as melted Velveeta.
I've got the carrots marinating in tomato soup, I'm just about to make my three-ingredient Black Forest Cake and I'm on my third rum and Coke.
Watch for Monday's post. I'll include a complete rundown of the event, including photos of the dishes and all the recipes. (I've also got a spy cam set up to capture all the Italians going back for second helpings.)
Until then, hang tight!
