~May Your Christmas Day be Merry, Bright & White!~

IMG_8596It's Christmas Eve.  It's time for family, friends, and food (in any combination, in any order).  Like all of you family cooks or chefs, I too am "knee deep" in preparations (and enjoying every moment of it)!

Whether you celebrate tradition, or change it up every year, give it your best attempt, never apologize for a minor mishap, and, make sure you find time for YOU to enjoy the festivities  with those you love too!

I've got my beef stock made (yesterday's post) for French onion soup, and, a prime rib ready to roast tomorrow.  I've also got a hand-painted, 1" tall "mini-Mel" doll too...

... which, was a gift from artist friend Trisha (Lynn) Rathsack in Gilbert, Arizona.  Trisha and I met on Facebook, she loves to cook, she is a regular Kitchen Encounters reader, and, a very talented lady.  Her company is iheartcollectibles, and, her website will be up and running in January.  When I opened her box of "fun stuff", I immediatley fell in love with her itsy-bitsy, rolly-polly creations, and, chuckled at the likeness she created of me in my Christmas apron!
