Stockings hung, cookies baked, eggs nogged? If they aren't, it's too late now. And it's probably just fine. Christmas not only will come even if we haven't finished all those things we think we have to do, it also will come again in exactly a year. Time to stop worrying, sit back and enjoy it.
It's that time for me, too. The Food Desk is closing down for a week while I take a vacation. I'll be back in this spot right after New Year's, ready for another year of cooking, basting, debating and pondering.
Happy Christmas to all, and a safe and enjoyable New Year.
