For all those who celebrate it, I wish you a very merry Christmas Eve! By now I should be done with my half-day of work and enjoying my annual Christmas Eve gathering with all the extended family on the maternal side. For once, I’m bringing my own culinary contribution to the potluck: sliced baguette pieces with a layer of cream cheese mixed with Italian dressing mix, topped with a slice of cucumber and dill. Let’s see if I can also make conversation with a relative I don’t normally talk to. Tryin’ to make big strides in my social life, folks! Hope you all aren’t working too hard today and that you get to celebrate exuberantly! And thank you so much for this wonderful Christmas postcard, Pat!
