I’m full in the throes of Christmas prepping today…the meatballs are made, my turkey is brining, the roast is marinating…stuffing is near ready, potatoes are peeled and ready for boiling…I still have to wrap 9000 presents (ok, maybe not *9000*, but it sure feels like it! :p), and bake cookies…but I just had to pop on here and wish all of you a very Happy Holiday Season! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or another special holiday, I wish for you Joy, Peace, Love and Health in the new year. Thank you all so much for all of your kind comments this year, and for sharing my love of cooking, new recipes and especially sharing yourselves, your wonderful personalities with me (and your awesome blogs!!!). I am thankful to have “met” you all this year, and wish you all the best.
I’d like to share with you a special tradition we have in Las Palmas…every year sculptors from around the world come to create one of the most amazing and awe inspiring sand Nativities at Las Canteras Beach. This year is no different. Have a look (you can see the full size images on my flickr page, as well as the rest of the photos if you’re interested…click the link to my flickr on the right side of the page):
