Merry Christmas from Sour Cherry Farm

Merry Christmas everybody! I’m sorry to say that SCF doesn’t have the extravangza of recipes and cooking posts that normally accompany this time of year. (Like in Christmas 2012, Christmas 2011, Christmas 2010…well, you get the picture…)

I have been struck with the flu. Yes, two days before Christmas. You know what they say about people with the flu (and I’m looking at you Typhoid Mary), they shouldn’t be cooking for others.

So Sondra and Leigh took Sam off to church on Christmas Eve and I stayed in bed. Hunna shook up some Manhattans and fixed up a plate of smoked fish and crackers, and had a little hors d’oeuvre reception for when they came home.


I drank mint tea. I guess that’s somewhat festive. The whole she-bang lasted about an hour, and back in bed I went.

Samantha, of course, was the belle of the ball. So naturally all the photos are of her.

From our farm to yours, we wish you all a Merry Christmas.  As it turns out, we got a white one, after all.

Not wanting to turn the tree on, even though it’s been so much fun all season long!

And toward the end of the evning, Samantha took to “covering” Daddy with her little “blankets.” Just to make sure he was nice and warm.
