How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Your oozy cheeses and tantalizing dips. Your crispy crackers and comforting confections. On olives, antipasto and bread. On charcuterie, cookies and cake. Yes chocolate in all shapes and sizes; truffles, barks and caramels. The small little morsels so easy to enjoy and the forgetfulness that comes with alcohol so you lose track of just how many calories have been consumed. Yes, I love you Holiday Buffet. And passed hors d’oeurves. You too sweets tables.
The open houses. What a concept! Stop by for a visit. Eat and drink. Carry on to the next and repeat. I love this time of the year. Why on Saturday alone we had 3 parties in succession all within 10 metres from our house. On Sunday I should have done a fast or a cleanse or something, but instead I spent it in bed nursing a hangover.
So for the next two weeks it will be stretchy jeans, baggy sweaters and antacids for me. Just so I can indulge in my true love. Food.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good meal,
The R&R Mom
