I don’t have a recipe to share with you all today. I’m sorry about that. It isn’t that I haven’t been in the kitchen–we all know that’s wonderfully impossible during the holidays. It’s just I’ve been given a couple of gifts this year that have (very gladly) taken my time. First of all, my little brother, an Army soldier stationed in Italy, has gotten a two week leave and arrived home to American soil Tuesday night. As if that wasn’t fantastic enough, my husband has been given a few surprise days off of work. Having this much time together is rare and I want to soak up every moment of it.
I hope all of you are as fortunate as I am this holiday season. Whatever holiday you celebrate, I pray it is wondrous, magical, and filled with delicious food, deep belly laughs, and the love and comfort of family.
