The tamales are standing by, and and the roast beast lurks in its cooler. (It was too large to fit into the already overstuffed refrigerator.) The potatoes are already cooked, and the pearl onions stands ready for brown-braising. The cat prowls the corridors, ready to repel invading miniature reindeer.

All that said, the holiday weekend will be a quiet time, albeit one with too much food. Last year Kathy and I were apart for basically the whole winter, so this year we’re taking it easy and planning a weekend for just the two of us.

However you’re enjoying the holiday weekend, whether it’s alone or in company, at a vast banquet or at the local Chinese takeout, I wish you all the best of the season.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours!

Here in Portland we are stocked up and ready for our holiday feast. The forecast is for snow, giving us the rarity of a white Christmas followed by a week or so of freezing weather. Keeping our fingers crossed that the power stays on.
