    Thanks for this great article and video from the party. Thank you for inviting me to learn more about what Fresh & Easy Markets have to offer me for my holiday entertaining. I learned a lot and had so much fun too. I’m still obsessing over that Organic Italian Pomegranate Soda! I was surprised at how good the appetizers were and that they are ready to just be baked and served. So simple but good.
