We lost power on Saturday. Repair estimate had us getting electricity on Christmas night at 1130pm. So, I had started to wrap my head around embracing what I would officially call the ‘Dark Christmas’ … I was excited about the prospect of ZERO cooking (watch out Taco Bell, here we come). But, unlike many of our Michigan neighbors … our power was restored before Christmas.
Shift gears, plan menu, embrace the day. So we did. I tried my hand at making candy (caramel dusted with sea salt). Tastes good, but the consistency isn’t right (VERY soft!) … I did make a tasty Christmas Turkey with Apple Whiskey dressing and the rest of the fixins’ …
My whole gang stopped in … We had a great family day. Here are a couple of the surprise gifts: my 7 inch tablet, and the twins’ pop maker.
Wrapped the night up working on a new knitting project (Brier Toque by C Glowik-Macdonald)
So, with Christmas 1 successfully behind us, I plan to get back to the studio tonight! Merry Christmas y’all!
