My own version of "You Might Think" by The Cars is going through my mind.
You might think that a blog dedicated to food would be in heaven over the holidays.
You might think that you could find lots of little holiday hints, tips, and recipes on such a blog.
You might think that at least the blogger might post some kind of holiday message.
I would. I would think that Christmas would be a perfect time for a food blog. I would love to find new recipes, ideas, and perspectives for the hustle and bustle of the season. A good blog that is current with what I would like for my life would quickly find its way into my favorites, and I would haunt it for new posts.
But, we are talking about my blog. I don't know that we can qualify my ramblings as good, and the only ghost here is me. I am sorry that I disappeared. My holiday schedule just swallowed me. There were so many things to do, and so little time. I had to prioritize. Cooking, cleaning, decorating, hosting holiday functions, and work came in ahead of what was On My Plate. Something had to give, and unfortunately, the it was the blog.
I did have a great holiday, though. I hope that your holidays were also everything that you wished for and more. We spent a lot of time with friends and family. I hosted Christmas Eve for my parents and younger sister, Christmas Dinner for Hubby's family on Christmas night, and after a before Christmas date was nixed by freezing rain and blizzard conditions, my annual Holiday Party took place between Christmas and New Years. All occasions went well and, if I may say so myself, the food was superb.
I still have plans to post my menus from the holidays and share our meals and stories with you. Hopefully, that can happen in the next few days. In the meantime, please enjoy a tour of our home this holiday season. (You will need Flash installed to view the slideshow.)
Here's wishing you all a Blessed and Happy New Year!
