We’re having buttermilk fried chicken, macaroni with three cheeses, and broccoli, followed by caramel macadamia tart. Perhaps not the most traditional of menus, but one well-suited to the capabilities of the current kitchen.

Blessings to all, if not for Christmas, than for anything you choose to celebrate!
