Well, I've just had 4 great days off and they could not have gone by any faster. The holidays were a whirlwind, spending time with loved ones and trying to ward off illnesses. The long weekend started with friends and dinner at The Ravenous Pig on Friday night, followed by a Saturday night gathering hosted at chez Jones, brunch on Sunday at Cask & Larder -yes, I visited both Petrakis establishments within 48 hours because they are THAT GOOD, picked up 10lbs of fish at Lombardi's for Christmas Eve, scrambled for last minute gifts, cooked like crazy, ate like the Mayan calendar was correct, watched my parents shout at the computer while trying to use Skype, received a wonderful selection of kitchen gear and reading material, opened a Christmas cracker to find a snazzy watch and a crown that matched my necklace. And thankfully... avoided an Aunt Edna like situation on Christmas afternoon.
So here's a summary in photos. Some Instagrams and some never grammed:
Back at the office for a short week before the New Year and ready to start working off the Christmas bloat. Cheers everyone, hope your holiday was a good one too!
