A Merry 2016 Christmas from the three of us!
Hello everyone! I mentioned in a comment on my previous post that my skin biopsy came back as benign, thankfully. Timmy went through a rough patch with his infection and course of antibiotics but he's on the mend! Wayne is still grieving the loss of his close friend who passed unexpectedly but like everything else we take it one day at a time. Even so, our day was very merry!
Many of our presents were from Timmy, believe it or not. He has a lot of helpers, apparently.
He even got Wayne a vintage card! The other vintage card is from me. Groovy, no?
Poor Timmy lost weight when he was sick but he's getting his healthy appetite back.
Timmy got me a little Christmas tree for my birthday, so I decided to make it a centerpiece for our table.
I placed the tree on a Fenton saucer and added some vintage mini mercury glass ornaments around the base. The embroidered table topper is also vintage from Germany.
Wearing one of my vintage Christmas aprons. Lots of pockets on this one!
I cooked the roast with heirloom fingerling potatoes and onions.
I made a wonderful steamed British pudding from a 1905 recipe in an obscure cook book I recently acquired! It was delicious and I served it with a little scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. I'll post that recipe this week!
Thank you again to those of you who took the time to wish us well (here, privately or in spirit) during our tough times. We appreciate it and you.
