This morning I was victorious (in my own way). Since we had so much leftover ham, I decided to make eggs benedict ~ even if I've never been able to make a hollandaise sauce successfully. And, this morning the sauce did start to "break" but a few drops of warm water and my husband's strong arm whisked that sauce right back into submission. Ha! Angels sang. The eggs benedict was delicious. Rich and delicious.
Did you have a nice Christmas? Was it all that you hoped for? I was pretty bummed we didn't have family to celebrate with this year, but my husband found a way to make it delightful nonetheless. I have three words to describe my Christmas: Anthropologie, Tiffany & Co., and... Singer! I got a new sewing machine!!! Goodbye Shark (from Target, second to cheapest they had, been sewing with it these last five years.) I am so excited to try out my new machine, but I am sad for the Shark ~ it was good to me.
Today we finally got around to baking our sugar cookies... the day after Christmas. Never too late, right?
I am so enjoying this after-Christmas calm. Cooking, eating, reading books, watching movies... we've got nothing to do and lots of time to do it. I am ready for the New Year, though. Starting fresh. Always hoping to make it the "best year ever." I've never been a resolution girl, but this year I may write a few things on post-it notes and tack them to my mirror... How 'bout you? Do you have resolutions for the New Year?
