Time…can this be the ultimate gift? Having a few extra minutes to slowly awaken each morning or savoring an extra cup of coffee. Whenever I have an available moment, I work out recipes or decorating arrangements in my mind’s eye. I love when a creative surge washes over me, giving me the ability to design a savory meal or sketch a cozy corner for a room in the house.
With the holidays vastly approaching my thoughts have turned to the Christmas. I have been working out the dinner menu and decorating the inside of the house. For the life of me, I refuse to light up the outside of our house. The neighborhood looks so inviting with lights twinkling and wreaths on every door. I realize our neighbors have help putting the decorations up and taking them down, but unfortunately I do not have that luxury.
Anyway I purchased the last of my Poinsettia’s this morning from my favorite florist. She always has the best selection of plants to choose from, in order to make the house appear warm and welcoming.
I have been collecting and receiving recipes from friends, storing them on my computer and in files all year long. Now comes the fun part of sorting through the various ingredients to make the most scrumptious meal of the holiday season.
