Christmas Eve 2017

Merry Christmas, all! Here’s our annual photo on the stairs of Grace Church:

One of my favorite hymns is “In the Bleak Midwinter.”

Pretty church:

Our cocktail this year was a Old Fashioned, doctored up by cocktail guru Dave Arnold: The simple syrup was made with coriander and red pepper flakes. Cheers!

Cocktail hour:

Christmas table:

We made Joan Nathan’s brisket. Turned out the best I think it ever has!

Baked polenta:

And Kale Salad with Butternut Squash and Sunflower Seeds:

My plate:

Aiya and Chris:

Dessert, a buche from Didier and an apple pie from Aiya:

Afterwards, some singing. Of course.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
