I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas? This year was one of the nicest ones for me. I had my whole family with us and my best friend. There is nothing better than spending time with your loved ones and eating a delicious meal together.
I have to pat myself on the back this year. My dinner was a success! I kept waiting for something to fail, burn or taste bad but every item came out perfect! My pies, ( if you have read earlier posts, you will know I can’t make pie. They just never turn out) ohh my pies! they came out nicely browned, decorated pretty and I actually got compliments on my pie crust, was even asked for my recipe!
