Sealion worked a twelve hour shift on Christmas day, so we had a feast the night before. I braised a brisket, made smashed sweet potatoes (with lots of cream and butter), and spelt molasses rolls. Austin made a wilted spinach salad with bacon. We taste tested the peanut butter cookies to make sure the Christmas Spirit would like them ~ I put a little dish of them on the mantle, and ~ sure enough ~ Santa sampled the cookies and left a sweet card addressed to Anjali.
Might I add that I passionately dislike the new blogger format, which very often angers me far more often than the old one did. Oh, does it ever.
