Merry Christmas, sweet readers! I hope your holiday season thus far has been happy and healthy. I know ours has, with the possible exception of too much food and/or alcohol. Wednesday was the Christmas party of our sweet friends, Anna and James, at Jack and Diane's, a relatively new piano bar in Greenville. We enjoyed a couple of drinks, time with good friends, and definitely some interesting entertainment.
Then last night B and I did our annual Christmas celebration before we go our separate ways to our own homes next weekend. This year it was really exciting because I know that next year wherever we celebrate Christmas we'll be celebrating it together, and I can't WAIT. We went to Nantucket, an amazing seafood restaurant here in Greenville, and had a phenomenal dinner. If you're in the area and looking for a good restaurant for a treat, that's the one.
Then we spent today cleaning our respective houses. So I know that's not all that festive, but it really needed to be done. And B is leaving tomorrow to go out of town for work until Thursday, so I didn't feel much like cooking a huge meal and eating leftovers for what feels like the rest of eternity. So we made an easy fallback.
If you have kids, or have ever babysat kids, or ever were once a kid, then you're probably familiar with this recipe. It is NOT rocket science. But it was warm and comforting and delicious. If you're looking for something easy to make on these hectic pre-Christmas nights, as you shuffle kids to various school events and pick up last-minute gifts, look no further.
