This holiday season, so far, I am baking, baking, baking and Tom is cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. Today has been busy with baking two pumpkin pies, a cheesecake, and a Key Lime pie and cranberry sauce. Tomorrow it will be sugar cookies and a Cherry pie. Perhaps a Pecan. And then it is on to preparing for a traditional Turkey dinner (mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, etc. for eleven on Christmas day. And spiral Ham, scalloped potatoes, etc. for 17 the next day. It seems typical that we have one sick child and one on the mend.
It’s all wonderful and fun to cook and it will be great to have everyone in our home. And Tom’s cleaning is stellar. You’d think he owns a cleaning company or something! :-)
I hope your holidays are filled with good food and people. If not, give me a call. We’ve got plenty and you are welcome.
We are grateful for our abundance and the love which surrounds us. And on this day, before the day before … we are grateful for good friends who have enriched our lives this year. For the true meaning of Christmas, for us, the birth of Jesus.
