Meanwhile, I did take it with me to my holiday lunch at Pat's house. Pat -- a very talented cook -- made a lovely lunch of butternut squash soup with cornmeal bread and an assortment of cheeses. And Rita supplied champagne, so we were in fine celebration form.
Here's Pat, demonstrating the hand-held GPS unit she adores.
And Rita, fondling the GPS unit because she covets it.
And Janet, looking on with amusement.
For dessert, Pat presented her annual Italian fig cookies and pizelles. Yummers.
Which makes a nice segue into what I'm doing today -- baking, baking, and baking. Tommy has inspired me to make a few batches of chocolate bark, too. Can you smell the chocolate?!
