Thanks everyone. I was just so amazed I got through it. I drove so excuse 1 made-for not drinking! Did give myself the option of eating meat nd salad if I had to give in but no one was noticing wat I was up to and all getting merry so was easy in that there was no outside pressure, just my rumbling tummy. It was a small party too so i was pleasntly suprised. So hope to other people, if I can do it you can to. All hail the crapjack!!
