I’m back at work again, clearing out some extra holiday inventory. My family as I might have mentioned earlier came to town to celebrate Christmas. We’re not church goers, but we do like to get together for some gift exchanging, a good meal and drink, maybe some games. On the 24th I had to work of course, but my sister and brother-in-law took charge of dinner, cooking us some manicotti and lobster for nice, long dinner. We ate, drank and played a raucous game of Apples to Apples afterward. On Christmas day proper, my family came back over and we exchanged gifts. My beloved sister read my post about not being able to get my hands on a copy of The River Cottage Meat Book and guess what I got! It’s fabulous, a very in depth look at meat and where it comes from. We all sat around enjoying each other’s company. Mr. Bookdwarf and I prepared a delicious turkey with all the trimmings—mashed potatoes, sausage dressing, corn, cranberry sauce. We even had an apple pie. And some vicious games of Uno, possibly fueled with bourbon. A great day was had by all. I hope everyone had a great day/s off.
