It is time to cook and bake here, preparing ahead for Christmas dinner and our tradition of hors doeurvres or snacks on Christmas Eve night. The Christmas Eve tradition started long ago, a combination of a busy schedule and a desire to try something new each year (for Christmas dinner's menu is "set in stone"!).
The aroma of ham baking on Christmas morning shouts to us that the Holiday has arrived as much as the last window on any Advent calendar. It brings with it such expectation of the Feast to come. Even if there are just three of us as with this year, I have to make everything so it will be Christmas.
I pray each and every one of you have a blessed Christmas. Perhaps not perfect or what we really, really wanted (in our case missing family who live far away and those who have passed away).... but still good.
I will be back next week...just taking a much needed break to read and ponder. :)
