The 60 plus ladies who attended the Wildhorse Lady Niners’ holiday party were greeted by servers with trays of mimosas as they arrived. Decked out for the season, they feasted on butternut squash bisque, sliced smoked Chateaubriand with demi glaze, au gratin potatoes, asparagus and cherry tomatoes topped off with a dessert of layers of white chocolate, raspberry, and dark chocolate mousse. Yum!
