We're home in the Houston area celebrating the holidays with our families...but I wanted to take a moment to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas! I hope you're spending time with family and friends...and that Santa put you on his "Nice List" this year. Whether you're enjoying a quiet celebration at home -- or traveling to spend time with tons of extended family like we are -- I hope it's a joyous day filled with laughter and a lot of delicious food! Merry Christmas and Feliz Navidad from The Weekend Gourmet crew! That would be: yours truly (chief cook, dish washer, and writer), Michael (taste tester and an amazing Dining Out and Travel Photographer), and Lucy & Maggie (very cute and very spoiled feline sous chefs)! Our pretty girls even posed for some Christmas pictures this year...so I have to share!
I'll be back in a few days with some great new recipes that are perfect for New Year's Eve celebrations! In the meantime, I'll be spending time making lots holiday memories with our family and friends back home...and eating a cookie (or three).
