The holidays for me are a blatant reminder of how blessed I am. I can't express through a computer how thankful I am for my loving family and friends. I don't know how I would function without you! And of course I am also thankful for the people who bother to read what I write! I am thankful that I'm able to give gifts and have a warm house to share dinners in. I realize that this isn't the case for everyone.
For dinner tomorrow we are making beef wellington. I wrote a post about it two weeks ago if you want to take a look back. I am also attempting a green bean casserole for the first time. Lastly, I am making decadent and delicious mini chocolate lava cakes. On top I am putting a dollop of homemade whipped cream and sprinkling crushed candy canes. My uncle is kind a chocolate fanatic, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make his year! I won't post this recipe until after Christmas, but if you want it before, write a comment and I will put it up.
