Merry Christmas!

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. --Edith Sitwell

This quote has appeared on the blog before (maybe twice now?) but it is one of my favorites and is worth repeating. Below are a few pictures I've taken in the last few days that seem to echo Edith's thoughts.
Chocolate Crinkles have been a hit with my brothers and our neighbors this year. Thanks to my roommate who introduced the recipe to me!

Christmas Bokah

My sister found a rather trashy looking candelabra at an antique store and I though she had just wasted $10. Come to find out after some soaking, cleaning, and polishing, it turned out to be a real beauty. I'm trying to convince her to let me buy it off of her to add to my collection of silver plated things. :)
The silver is polished and special fruit has been purchased for Christmas festivities.

The strains of White Christmas are floating into the kitchen, so I will go ahead and publish this and wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Cheri! That's a lovely quotation. I'm glad you can be at home.

I purchased some special fruit for Christmas too -- a big ol' papaya that, when sliced up, filled a large bowl! Drizzled with a little lime juice, it was a special treat!

Merry Christmas to you too, Laura!
