Our Christmas Eve tradition: A feast featuring Beef Wellington (see last year's Wellie above), delectable side dishes, the best wine we can find in the rack, and home-baked cookies with White Russians for dessert. (It's great having adult kids.) Dinner will be followed by the watching of the G-rated movie. This year: "The Sound of Music" (my son's choice, if you can believe that), to be viewed in front of a roaring fire, then a blissfully early bedtime. It's my favorite day of the year.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
