    Yeah, the party was a blast. We always had one in our old neighborhood, this was the first time we had one in our new one.

    We grilled a few dozen hot dogs, had chips and dip and provided soft drinks for anyone who wanted them. To make it complete, we also had:

    Soylent Green:


    And for the adults, we had gluwein. Our recipe for it is (approximately):

    1 cup orange juice
    a few orange slices
    1/2 cup of sugar
    3 cinnamon sticks
    8-10 whole cloves
    1 cup (or so) rum (we used Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum this year)
    1 large bottle/jug of cheap dry red wine

    You heat the orange juice, orange slices, spices, sugar, and a bit of rum on the stove and let it simmer for a bit, then add the wine and the rest of rum and bring it up to a simmer, then pour it into an electric crock pot to stay hot. You can add more rum if all of the alcohol evaporates out :wink: Just the thing for a chilly outdoor party. It's also a good Christmas party drink.
  8. Another laugh for sure.:biggrin: :biggrin: Only those of us old enough to have seen the movie Soylent Green would understand.:smile: :smile:
