Christmas Holiday Party Competition…

Every year, we head to our friends Greg and Jeanie’s. Like, for the last 100 years. Why? Because of the Once-A-Year Christmas Cheesecake. Only, in the past couple of years, Mia (Greg’s Daughter) has decided that she’s going to make a better cheesecake than Greg. Batter Up!

Hard to do, since Greg has been making his cake for the last… 100 years. Maybe 200. But, it’s a recipe that’s been handed down from Jesus, and Jesus made one heckava cheescake. Anywho, we converged on their place in the Valley the other night and again, Greg’s Ford Truck sat out in the parking lot, un-restored… since it was build in 1952. Only, this time it had a wreath on it. He’s gettin’ there…

Little red-headed Olive was a hoot as she squealed through the house in joy that the dogs were anticipating Christmas. (She’s a lil’ Fireball, too…) And since I’ve known Mia since she was only a toddler, it’s amazing that she’s got one of her own now.

But who won? Won won the title of best Cheesecake? Ahhh, will the mysteries of the world ever cease? Will Jesus’ recipe… uh, I mean Greg’s recipe ever be revealed? Will Mia’s cake take the title of “Cheesecake of the GODS!?”

Think I’ll get some coffee…
