Another gift exchange with the Arpin/Allinghams has come and gone. This year everyone brought their favorite appetizer which included Baked Brie with Apple Compote, Chili con Queso Dip, Mushroom Turnovers, Eggplant Garlic Dip and Assorted Flatbreads. I feel that by keeping a record of these events, that I can at least hold on to the good times for a bit longer…
