It was raining hard this morning, nice strong thundershowers. I watched a Christmas episode of Little House on the Prairie while it rained and it got me all excited about Christmas again. I love everything old-fashioned about Christmas - Handmade ornaments, baking sugar cookies, decorations from my childhood, old 8mm home movies of us running down the stairs to waiting Santa gifts, and Nat King Cole and the Ray Conniff singers Christmas tunes. I am starting to collect retro Christmas decorations so now I'm on the look out everytime I go into an antique store or flea market. I want an old-fashioned tree this year. So much in life isn't simple and nostalgic. Christmas should be.
I shared this recipe last summer and thought it might be time to post it again.
