For the remainder of this month I am going to be posting recipes for party FOOD! I know there are a million food sites out there, so please keep in mind that this is a tribute to my dad Chef Fred Oliver who collected all these recipes over the years and put them in a huge 3 ring binder, all having to do with entertaining, punch and parties in the 50's and 60's. So they are retro, nostalgic and just plain out of date but they are my dads so they will be posted. I will be adding a punch recipe here and there and then will have the whole month of December for all the rest of the Holiday drinks and punch recipes.

rich in color and flavor burgandy cherry sauce goes particularly well with eggnog ice cream. Or serve over ice cream ball that have been rolled in flaked coconut then stored in the freezer to become very hard.
