Girls Pajama Party 2010

Sorry Drost.. We thought your deer need a bra.. or two.

This was our 5 th year!!!
WOW that is so great to think that we have all gotten together for 5 years in a row! We laugh, carry on like teen agers and except each other for who we are. Most of us stay up all night. It is dangerous to be the first to fall asleep or leave you phone unattended . This year Paula was the only one who went to bed. Someone drew her eye brows with a permanent magic marker. She was a trooper and shopped with big dark eye brows. We always have fun. We go over the calendar and plan the year of when, what and where. Play games, eat and yes have drinks. All of us have pj. alike. . This pj party is at Rhonda's house. She lives near Shipshewana, Indiana.
Shipshewana has a pj shopping week end. Everyone who wants a discount shops in there pj.s. The town is filled with shoppers dressed in all sorts of pj.s Shopping starts at 6 am or EARLIER.
Everyone brings snacks and drinks to share. We start arriving at Rhonda's around 7pm. . I was ready at 5. I had my margarita machine packed and ready to go. I like to try new recipes. I found this recipe from one of my favorite blogs. Our Best Bites.
Hope you will try it and let me know what you think.
Cheesy Roasted Red Pepper Dip

In the pictures you will see all the ingredients. I used a large glass pie dish. You use chips or crackers to dip into it or spread it on toasted bread.. We really just want to eat if off our spoons. I found this on one of my favorite blogs. Our Best Bites. .

7 oz jar roasted red peppers ( i drained them. Then let them set on a paper towel to dry them. Then diced them
8 oz soften cream cheese
4 cups cheese. I used a Mexican 4 cheese style
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons minced onion
4 cloves minced garlic
1 Tablespoon of spicy mustard

Heat oven at 350 ..
In a bowl stir together cream cheese, mayonnaise, onion, garlic and mustard. Then add shredded cheese and roasted red peppers. Stir.
Store in frig until ready to bake. This can be made ahead of time and stored in frig.
Bake in oven for 30-45 min. I baked mine until it was brown on top and slightly brown and pulling way from the side of the dish. I would say I baked it for 45 min.
Serve warm. Enjoy.... we did ..

We look pretty good for staying up all night. Breakfast at the Blue Gate. It was very COLD and windy that morning.

Hi Debbie> Now that sounds like such fun. I think it is so great that you all are meeting like that for a slumber party. Sounds like it brings out the kid and a lot of giggles in you all. I would like to be a fly on the wall. LOL!
