Well Christmas has wrapped at the Livengood household and the new year is on our doorstep. I’m still celebrating. I refuse to take down my trees and presents are still scattered around the den. My mother rips Christmas down the very next day while she watches Gone with the Wind, but I’m in no hurry to make it all disappear. When I finally get in the mood, I’ll pull out Bridget Jones’s Diary, Something’s Gotta Give and The Holiday. Those are my packing it up tradition.
There are leftovers bursting out of the fridge from our Christmas day feast: cinnamon buns, honey ham, potato salad with bacon and cheese, sugary and goey pies, pickles and olives… we’ll be eating on these until we can’t stand one more bite. And today I’m making ham bone soup. We always cook for an invisible army.
The present giving this year was off the chain. I thought I’d take you on a tour of the loot and share some of my favorite family pics from our celebrations. I hope you and yours have a great New Years Eve and day. I can’t wait to share my New Years resolutions with you and to get these Southern Egg Rolls made again!
