scratch birthday cakes for Lorelei and her friend Klaire,
and my first pot roast for Christmas dinner. I've been so occupied with getting everything done that I haven't really reached out for my camera or my laptop to document most of it. The flurry of blog activity in October with the Jamie Oliver nod and the subsequent promotion and chatter also took it's toll.
Frankly, mama needed a break.
Anyhoo, let's suffice to say that most of the food was awesome, some of it was major foible material, and the rest of it is leftovers that will become dinner this week. Maybe I'll do a series on what to do with leftovers so that the kids (and the rest of the family for that matter, including me) don't recognize the food that they've been eating for the entirety of December. I've got my eye on the pot roast and some good cheese in the fridge. I'm thinking killer sandwiches. Stay tuned for that.
Given that I may not have a chance to post anything else until the New Year, I would like to send out a giant thank you to all of the people who have supported me in my efforts to do this blog. Thank you to all of my readers, and thank you to all of the people who have questioned what I do and who have challenged my perspective; it's been your feedback that has really meant so much to me. Because of it I now have a very solid understanding of what I want to do with this part of my life, and Lorelei and I will both benefit greatly from it.
Here's hoping that your holiday hangovers pass easily and that your New Year brings happiness, success, friendship, love, and of course... GOOD FOOD!
Be well. And really, thanks for reading.
