Cheese, Please.

Here it is: #6. Make some silly pic on the computer that somehow involves a tortilla chip. (By the way, this is the only thing I got done on my crazy to do list. But we have already had the tree tipped over and spent more than 4 hours troubling over our half working strands of Christmas lights so I think I'm still on track with the holiday festivities)

I'm pretty proud of my silly tortilla pics, considering the fact that I made them in Paint. I really wish I had a photo shop program. Here are the pics I made for Christmases past:


The Vance's Cheesy Christmas Nacho Party has been an annual tradition of ours for 5 years now. It is my version of the Christmas goodie plate. Instead of taking plates of goodies to people we just invite everyone to our place and feed them here. We serve an all-you-can-eat super nacho bar with all sorts of yummy toppings and LOTS of nacho cheese. I make all my Christmas candies and leave them in bowls around the house for people to nibble on. We pack the house with all our friends (it is pretty much the only time when DSSH's world of friends and my world of friends comingle). It is a ton of fun. The best part about it is that it is non traditional, so I don't have any rules to follow. We make a big point about the fact that it is a cheesy party in every way. My Christmas decorations are cheesy, my party planning is cheesy, my paper plates are cheesy, nothing Martha Stewarty to be found any where. Ahhh, I love it.

What a great non-traditional tradition!!

It sound right up my alley. I'm not very good at fancy! Your graphics are great, too!

I love that. Everyone gets tired of Christmas food, Christmas this and Christmas that...a little untraditional is a welcome break, I'd say...

Love the invites, too. :)

Hey ice cream friend, we love nachos, too. I like the fact that the party is nontraditional, so there are no "proper etiquette" rules to follow. Why do parties always have to follow someone's rules? Sounds like a good time!
