It seems like it has been forever since I hosted the OMs (Original Mahjettes, as we call ourselves) but finally today we were all chez moi. And I used the occasion to celebrate three November birthdays: S1, S2, and J.
Our lunch was my favorite – one of the Barefoot Contessa‘s fabulous and very hearty soups – so delicious! I will post the recipe tomorrow. Before everyone arrived I placed a jar of my homemade cranberry relish at each place. I have been making this recipe every year since 1976…it’s a tradition for me!Right after lunch we began our game play – and we were really playing fast today so we got in many, many games. Nothing could make me happier because we were able to make a donation to Stay Strong and Mahj On (SSAMO) for $75 (a couple of days worth of winnings)!
I was so happy to have a Jokerless hand…we actually had two of them today!Here are some of the winning hands today (although there were many more than what I will post here):
Wait a minute, who is that causing trouble and suddenly sneaking out of the closet?But before we went any further, it was time for a happy birthday dessert for the three November birthday girls – Talenti Mediterranean Mint Gelato, Talenti Double Dark Chocolate Gelato, and topped with a fudge covered brownie and a happy birthday candle! YUM!
