A Very Merry Christmas!
I hope each of you had a very Merry Christmas. We did at our house. The new toys are a big hit at our house, but the Fondue pot, Deep fat fryer, silicone cupcake liners, kitchen mandolin, and cooling racks are even bigger hits. All of those were scattered between us, but I am so blessed. I have a great family, and I also have a husband who really wants me to grow and become a better person. People who know me know that I am not a real cook. I can follow a recipe as long as it only requires exact measurements, but once it says something like "season to taste" or the like, I'm in big trouble. All of the above items came with step-by-step instructions for how to use them, so with the mandolin and deep fat fryer, my husband and I will now be able to create the southern delicacy of sweet potato fries. (Don't knock them until you've tried them. I'm not a sweet potato or yam fan, but these fries really are great!) We have already tried out the fondue pot. It worked really well, and we had a great dinner tonight. We have also had a glorious time just having our family around ourselves. It's our first year where we've had Christmas in our own home. It was lovely. Smile big all, Merry Christmas, and be safe with New Year celebrations!
