No snow, no trees, no obligations.

But there was still a mountain of food.

Having had so many traditions that felt like obligations in the past, a completely different plan for this Christmas was welcome. On Christmas Eve, we had chicken breasts stuffed with goat cheese and prosciutto, mashed sweet potatoes, Brussels spouts, and a giant salad at Dave's house.

Then last night we stopped in to DIK Bar for a drink with Jason R and Dereck, then went on to Jimmy's house for lasagna and homemade bread. Fabulous and low-key tradition. The bar was also serving a free Christmas dinner buffet for all patrons, which was a nice gesture though we didn't partake. We did, however, borrow a bottle of vodka from the bar manager (Bradley) because there were literally no liquor stores open. Random how 17th Street can help you arrange things like that.

No trek home this time. I'll try to get back to NM in the summer.

Happy New Year to you!

sometimes you gotta shake things up to see what works, and what new traditions can come from it. my very traditional parents may have finally got on board with the chrismukkah lunch versus dinner, because by 5pm i was just done with the day and ready to go home.

This is a good thing! If a traditional practice doesn't work anymore, we shouldn't all be stuck with it forever.
