'Tis The Season To Entertain & To Be Entertained

October Swap proved Dallas swappers are a fancy lot.  The Holidays are around the this time of year...soon we'll be sending invitations or getting invitations to mingle, sparkle and party.  When invited I love taking an edible host gift...the list is long: wine, coffee beans, fruit jam, local honey + cheese, seasonal organic fruit, you get the idea. 

For my November swap I will keep in mind the many invitations to come, wink, and what I would love to gift the host.  My wish is that it can be served that evening, enjoyed the next morning or shared with friends at a later date.  Think I'll make pear butter, apple butter, tomato jam........
