A Holiday Reading

A Holiday Reading

The annual tradition of reading Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory” continues. We hosted this year, and at the table were Kris and Tom, Suzie and Joe, Irene, and two new friends, Jennifer and Amy.

Even if you’re serving with fancy sterling silver and crystal wine glasses, the motto at the farm is: Food in bowls.
