Christmas 2010, spent with family and some of our closest friends, ranks up there as one of the best ever. Days like this remind me of how lucky I am to have this wonderful family and special friends. Not only was Prime Rib was perfect, the champagne cocktail more than tempting and the pumpkin cheesecake a perfect finish to this wonderful day, but the time together was the biggest treat of all. After being on my feet for about 14 hours straight, I'm too beat to write a wrap up, but I most certainly wanted to wish you all a wonderful holiday.
In our thoughts today is Hester, from Comida es me vida, y mi vida es comida. Earlier this week we learned of a tragic loss for her family. Her 14 month old cousin, Annabelle, suddenly past away. I simply can not fathom what Hester and her family are going through at this time. While Hester is taking a bit of time from her blog, she asked Liv and I to fill in for a day or so. Liv, after hearing about little Annabelle, immediately wanted to help. She chose a Candy Cane Cookie thinking that it would have been something that the little one would have liked to make and eat! We didn't have the best luck with our recipe, but Liv taught me some valuable lessons in the process. Laughing and giggling through the evening, the two of us had a wonderful time putting the cookies that "didn't look so good" (but tasted wonderful!) together. Check out Liv's post on Hester's blog if you get a chance!
Happy Holidays, my friends! I hope this day has found you happy and healthy, and enjoying the treats and treasures of the season.
