Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!  I hope you are enjoying the holidays with friends and family.

I'm having a very nice Christmas with my family-in-law down in Arcachon.  We had a long and delicious meal last night of figs, toasts, oysters, sausages, salad, goose (!), stuffing, chestnuts, green beans wrapped in bacon and buche.  We washed it all down with tons of different wines...white, red and champagne.  At midnight we opened all our gifts (and there were a ton this year) then off to bed.

This afternoon we had another big meal of foie gras, magret de canard, lamb, potatoes, salad and pecan pie (made by yours truly).  After eating we went for a walk at the port.  It was a bit cold and windy along the water, but it was a beautiful day with sun and blue skies, so it was well worth it.  This evening we will be eating another big meal and then certainly passing out from having filled our stomachs too much!

Hope everyone else is having a wonderful holiday!
