Mom’s done baking her meatloaf. Dad’s sliced up the ham. My sister is chopping up ingredients for tonight’s paella. Both the bubbly and the sparkling peach are chilling in the fridge.
And I’m getting ready to bake a pane al cioccolato studded with cranberries, macadamias, and more chocolate. In the meantime, I’m resting up and chilling with a homespun sundae and a good book.
I hope that, as we sit down to feast on all these good things tonight, the coming year will have something good for all of us – especially those who were hit hardest by some of the worst calamities of 2011.
So, from all of us here at home: may you and your families have a Peaceful, Prosperous, and Utterly Delicious New Year. 😀
