Lovely day, lots of gifts, lots of happiness, lots of walks and I even had a nap! My younger daughter went out and dug three huge holes, one for the tree, one to try to trap me, and one to trap dinosaurs. Elder daughter a bit under the weather. Spoke to the husband...doing fine, into the fifth hour of lunch at his Catalan cousins when we talked.
My sister and I cooked dinner, turkey and all. It was good. Tried to cook brussel sprouts a new way, from memory. I have a few of MFK Fisher's books, (on the boat) and my memory was that she fried them in butter, with a little salt and pepper. Try it, you'll like it. Use a LOT of butter. Mmmmmm. That may not be what she said to do, but it's what I remember and what I did. The family was great, the sun shone - for the first time since we got here...and it was all Christmas should be.,
Nice day, hope yours was as lovely.
