I will be taking a hiatus today to spend time with family & friends. I’m roasting a 24-pound turkey, complete with homemade stuffing, cranberry-orange sauce, and all the other traditional trimmings, which we will then share with our dear friends and neighbors, Ali and Maha, and their three boys, Tholfaqar, Ibraheem, and Yousif. I will be asking the girls (daughter Chris and granddaughter Natasha) for much help, as it is about all I can do to stand for 10 minutes, but I am determined to do as much of the cooking as I possibly can.
I just want to take a minute to thank you, my friends & readers, for all the support you’ve given me over the past few difficult months. You truly are a blogging family and I appreciate you all so much. Jolly, Joyful and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and that you are able to spend time with the people who mean the most to you. Remember that no matter what your religion or lack thereof is, this is a holiday of light, of love, of caring for others. It’s not about food or presents, but about setting aside our differences and just loving each other. So, give lots of hugs today and have a wonderful day!
Merry Christmas, love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!
