    Well, I'm bringing a N. ampullaria, a N. khasiana x ventricosa, and a few other things... for the swap.

    Anyone bringing Holiday food?

    That's awesome!! This is gonna be fun! By the way, I'll have to remember to bring you the recipe for Gingerbread Pancakes with candied ginger in them!

    Once again, we'll bring the carafe of hot water & the instant Cocoa, Hot Cider, and Land O' Lakes flavored cappucino packets.

    Ok, who's bringin' the (spiked) eggnog?

    Stiffler,
    You have a good recipe for those? I lost mine a while back. PM me if you do.
    WB, How many people show up for this swap, usually?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Last year was our first Yankee Swap. I think we had about 15 to 20 people.

    Oh, 'The Griffin', the recipe we have for the gingerbread cookies is from 'The Joy of Cooking' cookbook. I'll send you the recipe soon. They turn out pretty good and soft.

    Here's an update.

    We had 19 people who took part in the swap. A few new faces too. Great gifts all around. When we get some photos uploaded on the NECPS website, we'll post them here.

    Michael lucked out and got some Ceph pitcher cuttings that Jeff had started. They were like 1 inch tall. Mike, can you post a pic? Lots of neps were gifted too. I was totally psyched when I opened my gift - a propagation heating mat!!.....that was Yankee Snagged away at the last minute by Priscilla. I ended up with a "Bucket-O'-Bark" a 3 gallon bucket of orchid bark, which is still very cool. My wife, Dena, got a N. rokko x spectabilis and 2 CDs: the soundtracks of the Little Shop of Horrors movie & Broadway play.
