Christmas Cheer::Appetizers (link party!)

christmas cheer

Welcome to the party! Merry Christmas Y’all!

This is a party of appetizers. You share (with links or pictures) your favorite appetizer recipe(s) for Christmas and then link up here (to your blog or Facebook page) so we can all get some new ideas for fabulous starter food. If Thanksgiving food is all about the meal then Christmas food  is all about everything else—-the tapas, the sweets, the breads, the drinks, etc.
Monday (or now if you’d like)—-Appetizers
Friday—-Breads, Breakfasts and Drinks
Sounds like fun and I will participate myself sometime tomorrow when I get all this technical mumbo jumbo figured out.
Start linking tonight if you’re ready 🙂

Here’s the code for the party button if you’d like to display it on your blog.  If will link back to the party and is kinda cute if I do say so myself.  Just copy and paste the following  crazy stuff into the HTML tab of your blog and magic will occur.   If magic fails to occur, let me know.  I’ll sprinkle more fairy dust.

Now let’s get cooking!

p.s.  If noone shows up to the party, I’ll be forced to make full page collages of the foo dogs all week.  And judging from your comments, some of you would be very afraid 🙂

p.p.s.  I know some of you have had trouble with the photo button but I think it’s working now.  You could also just drag the photo onto your desktop and then add to your post and make the photo a link similar to the way you’d make a text link.   If you post the ‘html’ code I’ve given and then hit ‘publish’ without going again to the ‘compose’ tab, it should work though.  For some reason when I switched between compose and html, it adds stuff to the html code which makes is then not work.   See what I mean about blowing up the internets?

  1. Hey, Edie!  I linked up my little Snowman from last year.  I couldn’t get the HTML to work for the button, but it’s probably just me!  I’ll try again later.

  2. Was also unable to use the html, so added a direct link to your post at the bottom of mine.  Will check back later for another try

  3. I couldn’t get the HTML to work either, but then noticed it didn’t like the curly quotes. Deleted the curly quotes and replaced with new. Worked just fine.

  4. Edie, concerning the previous post with last year’s cookie recipes on a linky, I could not access it. I clicked on your link and it took me to a post, but no linky recipes. Can you help me?

  5. I always goes to my sister’s house for Christmas.  Who puts out a fantastic dinner, but ALWAYS forgets about the apps!  I booked mark 4 recipes. I’m going to assign myself apps this year!

  6. I am always looking for great appetizer recipes.  There are some wonderful ones here that I can’t wait to try.  Thank you, dear Edie for hosting this great party.


  7. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

  8. I cannot quite remember how much I paid but I think it
    was about £6. When you have more comedy being telecasted on the TV, there is no need to go anywhere else.
    But still we believe in such unrealistic fictional fantasy stories that movies have.

  9. Its like you read myy mind! You seem to know so much abbout this, like you wrote the book iin it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit,
    but instead of that, thjs is fantastic blog. A fantastic read.
    I will certainly be back.
