Weekend in Photos
The highlight of the weekend was a little holiday gathering Jonah and I hosted at our apartment. I've done the shopping and the decorating and the baking, but it doesn't really feel like Christmas until I'm eating and drinking with people I love.
I kept it pretty low-key with snacky foods, nothing that had to be kept warm, perfect for grazing all night, mini roast beef sandwiches with horseradish sauce, bacon-wrapped water chestnuts, cheese and crackers, hummus, and for dessert, sugared pecan cookies, chocolate bark and peppermint brownies. We had the Christmas music going, mulled wine on the stove, the yule log burning on the TV, my friend Liz wore an awesomely bad sweater, and we ended the night listening to a classic Christmas tale from David Sedaris. It was a pretty perfect evening.
