Every year sometime in November, hubby and I throw a cocktail party for a few co-workers and friends. This year is no exception and last weekend we had a house full of friends.
Granted we don't throw a traditional cocktail party, but it really doesn't take much to put together a party. Invite a few friends,
Summer Sausage, Assorted Cheese and Crackers
Caramelized Onion Dip
Meatballs - Cooked in equal parts beef broth, chili sauce and grape jelly
Cocktail Sausages - Cooked in beef broth only to be dipped in sauces below
