Bingo Night

Every December we get together with friends and family for food, fun, and Bingo.  Each guest brings a Bingo prize and we play Bingo until the prizes run out.  It’s a blast!  I spent a couple of weeks looking for recipes and narrowed the menu to the items listed below.  The one thing I forgot to do was take photographs of the appetizers and dinner…because I was busy cooking and serving our guests from 5 p.m. to midnight.  Yes, midnight!   The pasta dinner was served at 11:00 p.m., after we’d had our fill of Bingo.  Perhaps the dessert table photos will give you a taste of how things looked that evening!
