28 December 2008 – The Last Supper
Well it's the last Sunday Supper of 2008! Is everyone as ready as I am to end this crazy year? However, I am feeling optimistic about 2009. Christmas week has been hectic. It began with the annual Grant family holiday gathering last weekend. We had 10 relatives stay over last Saturday and made brunch on Sunday. We had a fun and crazy time, and I think wigs will become an annual tradition! I made a cook book of my mother's favorite recipes and gave to my family as a gift. It was a lot of work, but I enjoyed the process. I told a personal story about each of the recipes, so it was kind of like regression therapy. My sister gave me two Olivia Newton-John albums for Christmas, so she supervised all of my holiday baking in the kitchen. We are off to Seattle tomorrow to visit Jim's family and grand niece, Tatum. We are going to ring in the new year by watching fireworks at the Space Needle. It will be a lot of fun.
Tonight, I used my huge new cast iron skillet to pan roast a whole chicken! (just for you, Bernardo!) I finally got around to using my gift cards to the Viking Store that I got last year for my birthday. I am tired from all of the holiday festivities and a bit under the weather, so the comfort food hit the spot.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and best wishes for many great meals in 2009! Catch you on the flip side...
