Holidays arriving…

This year, with 4 preps, and more work than I can handle, the holidays feel like they are coming at my like a bullet train.

We eat with family out of town on Thanksgiving proper - but I always come home and make another full turkey dinner - with cheap turkey bought the day after Thanksgiving - so we can have leftovers!

Thanksgiving – lovely, but a blur. Birthday – yes I am now 48 – was also lovely – treated to dinner at Sake Bomb, lots of lovely gifts, students singing happy birthday, lots of facebook greetings – but a blur.

Now the tree is up. The Advent wreath was made. The boys hung up outside lights – and that is as prepared as we are. No cards, no gifts, no meals or teacher gifts even planned. YIKES!

Somehow – we will get to the important day with the most important stuff done. But I miss those years when it was more leisurely – sigh.

Cranberry curd tartlets in pecan shells - with a little whip cream, these were quite the treat at Thanksgiving!
