Our Lucia Day dinner didn't happen on Dec. 13th, due to weather, but we rescheduled for Dec. 16th. Icy streets daunted one guest, one was felled by illness, Tom fetched two more, and another couple were able to make it on their own. The six of us had a great time! We started early - 3:00- so part of the travel could be done in daylight. We ate hors d' oeuvres, drank hot spiced cider and talked - we always have plenty to say!. At 5:00 we served a dinner of cedar planked, grilled salmon with lovely pot luck accompaniments. The finale was Tom's hazelnut torte. Everyone made it home safely. We are thankful for good friends who helped me make this celebration happen.
