Lunch box swap party

This Saturday I'm hosting my third annual lunch box swap party. I've written down the "rules" so next year I won't have to try and remember them.

>My lunch box swap party

Everyone brings a lunch in an attractive container. Each person draws a number. Number 1 chooses a lunch first. Number 2 can choose a new lunch or “steal” Number 1’s. This continues until everyone has chosen a lunch.

Then everyone sits down and eats. I provide a salad and a dessert.

I have this party every year in August in celebration of Mom’s birthday. This year, 2009, she turns 88.

I've been bad.

I've been remiss in posting to my blog. I've been preoccupied with physical therapy for my achilles tendonitis and getting ready for Kevin's wedding.

Now, the wedding is over - it was fabulous.

I'm getting ready for this Saturday's (8/29/09) Red Hat Lunch Box Swap at my house. I spent last weekend trying to get my house in party condition. I'm not baking this year. I will buy the cookies. I still plan on making the salad.
I have this party every August in honor of Mama's birthday. It was August 3rd but I had to delay it until after the wedding. Since it's her birthday month Mom gets to wear red with a purple hat. It's getting too difficult for me to take Mom places so it's nice to have the party at home.
