Ladies Christmas Get Together

Saturday night a few of us ladies from the mission in town went out to eat and exchange Christmas gifts. I've posted a few pictures. Even posted some of the food that we were served. Food is such a big part of the American culture that most everyone is curious about what we eat here.

Olives and bread are always brought to the table as soon as you sit down. But, you WILL be charged for them.


This is what I had for supper. (I shared this platter with three other ladies) But you always get rice and french fries with your meat. We had grilled chicken.


All the ladies.


Ms. Dawne and Lenny

I love hard crusty breads! Bread is my downfall and I blame my dad. He always had to have bread with every meal. We used to go to a Portugese restaurant sometimes and I'd get their chicken...I LOVED that chicken.

The food looks good and what huge portions! Is it meant to share or is that what they normally serve for one person?

It's always nice to get together with the Ladies. :)

I love your Christmas theme! thanks for checking in on Gijón too! :) Love the bread and olives unfortunately so do my hips. jeje.
Don´t know yet what we are going to do for our ladies Christmas meeting. I would love any ideas you may have. Last year we planned a recipe exchange in which some of my nieghbors came. I thought to do it again but then maybe there would be a better way to go about it.

I MISS the bread in Portugal. Fresh hot on my door every morning! Love the pictures and memories. My American ladies at church are learning that when we have a fellowship they must bring something, doce ou salgado. Just the way of it!
Boa Noite!
