I hope you'll pardon my lapse in posting this week. I had plans to work on a gluten-free letter to Santa post, but after the terrible tragedy in Connecticut last week, I just didn't feel right blogging about the holly and the jolly. Instead, I spent a lot of time with the people I love, because, man, life's short.
1. If you are looking for a tasteful, gluten-free way to celebrate the Mayan-foretold End of Days tomorrow, might I suggest these delightful little Chex noshes? They are easy to make, and who doesn't love a little ancho chile with their chocolate?
2. To anyone in the path of Winter Storm Draco, stay safe and warm. And, you know, play some Quidditch of something. But like I told a co-worker, if you see the Dark Mark in the sky, we're probably all already hosed.
3. No list of Christmas specials for you all this week. Just know that last night involved a lot of Rankin/Bass stop-motion animation and Rumchata. We've got a lot of holiday viewing to get caught up on this weekend. I'm thinking mimosas and A Very Brady Christmas are on the docket, stat. And no, alcohol consumption is not required for holiday merriment. But ... it helps.
