As you read this, I recovering from a delightful Christmas Eve with close friends. (Thanks to TypePad's ability to delay postings!) Hopefully, the dishes (I refuse to use paper and plastic) are washed and I got a good night's sleep. I am opening packages, sipping on eggnog, and absolutely loving the surprised look on my husband's face as he opens his VSG (very special gift): Petzl Nomic Leashless Ice Tools. (I know, I had no idea either. Thanks very much to his friend and fellow-climber, Bob!)
My lovely in-laws are driving up from Colorado Springs for the day. I'm delighted to host them as I have often been a guest in their home for Christmas and it's nice to return the favor. I'll be serving:
Curried Pumpkin Soup
Pork Tenderloin with Red Pepper Jelly
Mashed Cauliflower with Herbs
Chocolate-Pecan Pie with Gluten-Free Crust
Oh, yes, did I mention eggnog?
Mery Christmas to all!
