Santa had other plans
Just as I was packing up last night to head to my parents’ house to eat, gift, and be merry, my mom called. We need to delay our celebration a little bit to ensure that we all stay healthy (everyone is fine). I’m grateful for the caution and that my family will stay healthy, but dang.
Looks like another solo holiday for me. Good thing I’ve had practice.
Let’s eat, gift, and be merry anyway
Still, let’s eat, gift, and be merry! Here’s a sleigh full of ideas to make your holiday something to remember, whether you’re on your own or with loved ones.
Or maybe not
Or, if you’re feeling a bit off this year (totally understandable), there’s some ideas that might help. These are challenging times, my friends. We’ll take the wonder where we get it, and accept when we just aren’t’ up for it.

Appetizers and soups
Cheese course and desserts
