Well, everything is in order. I have my tree, gifts wrapped up in muslin bags, and...oh, yeah, some fresh gingerbread that will be coming out of the oven later today. Yesterday I wasn't feeling so much of the Christmas cheer that I used to look forward to as a kid. Then my aunt passed on some great advice to me: "Just do what you love." There are few things I love more than delicious, homemade food, so what better way to create some cheer in my home than the smells of traditional winter foods cooking in a hot oven. I found a recipe that calls for lots of fresh ginger, orange zest, and a cup of whole milk. Yum! And so, on this eve of Christmas, I am finally getting into the spirit and making my own cheer. I wish you all the best (and lots of warmth and delicious food) over this holiday season, and all the cheer that can fit into your own oven. Happy Christmas!
