So, how was it? Ours was really lovely. A plentiful table with lots of plates to fill—a cook’s dream, right? I think so. Especially as this cook might have cooked a bit much. Plus, we were lucky enough to have Charlie’s folks visiting us over the holidays. It was a good week.
Some new recipes turned out to be keepers (looking at you, Clementine Chess Pie). And chocolate dipped Oreo turkeys made an appearance.
And the next day? Three sleepy knitters braved the Black Friday line at a crazy hour to score some deals at our local yarn store. One knitter, who shall not be named but is notoriously NOT a morning person, was even pleasant during the wee hours (though her two former roommies were scared to death slightly nervous to meet her at that hour).
I don’t think there are many who would understand the lure of hand dyed wool on sale. Unless you’re a knitter, that is. Because if you are, well, then you understand completely. And I daresay, if you live in the DC area, you were in that line, too!
Here is my haul.
