Even the bathroom is decorated.
The beams in the kitchen are garlanded.
Make the Yuletide gay. The dining room is ready for the Lucia dinner and the beginning of jul.
The guests have arrived. It's time to light the candles.
Salmon with dill sauce Oven roasted fingerling potatoes with thyme
Roasted Brussels sprouts and parsnips with pecans
Petite peas and cauliflower
Butter crunch lettuce salad with avocado, Mandarin oranges and pomegranate seeds
Happy golden days of yore,
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
Mavis and Colleen,
We're so sorry Jan's husband Vic, and our good friend Jeanne couldn't be with us due to illness.
This is the group we have breakfast with every Friday. You'd think we'd run out of things to talk about, but we don't. We visited long into the evening.
To top off the meal we present Tom's hazelnut torte, a masterpiece that tastes as good as it looks.
