Ho, ho, ho! Happy "Awkward Week Between Christmas and New Year." Hope Santa/Hanukkah Harry/Flying Spaghetti Monster was good to you.
1. I hosted my first Christmas this year. Consequently, it was the first large-scale gluten-free meal I had to prep. I didn't remember to take pictures, but it was yummy, everyone loved it, and I didn't get sick. We just won't talk about the couple of meltdowns it took me to get the meal on the table. Now I just have two more events to host until I can pack up my apron and go into hibernation for a while.
2. Thanks to Marlow at Gluten Hates Me for organizing the Blogger Secret Santa. I got some nifty gifties, several of which I'd never gotten to try before. Plus, I got to pick out some of my favorite GF stuff for my giftee, too.
3. Luke brought me into this decade by gifting me a Kindle Fire for Christmas. I am looking for some fun suggestions for games and apps, so let me know if you have anything you love. So far, I've used it as an e-reader ... but mostly I've been playing the logo ID game. Not sure what that says about me. 'Merica.
I'm going to try to get a post up about entertaining before New Year's Eve, but if I don't - Happy New Year to you all. This past year was a bit of a dumpster fire, and I appreciate you all out there, bloggers and readers alike, who made it easier. Let's make 2013 awesome, yeah?
