Ho, ho, ho and fa-la-la-la-la!
December 26, 2015 | Ken and Rafe decided to host this year's Christmas dinner. As usual, there was a lot of gratuitous toasting, laughing, and over-indulging.
Ken and Rafe out-did themselves with all the cooking, cleaning and decorating. A vase of gigantic rose blossoms stood in the center of the table. In fact, they were so huge ("yuuuuge") that we all thought they were fake, instead of having been harvested from Ken's yard. A little swag bag was at each place with Lotto scratcher and a mega-millions lottery ticket, as well as other goodies such as singing ornaments and miniature candy bars. So far, I have heard no shrieks indicating a winning lottery ticket. Oh, well.
Then, of course, there was the food. Lots of it, and all delicious. Naturally one has to try a bit of everything. But a bit of everything ends up being, oh, say, 5,000 calories.
As usual, of course, everyone prepared doggie bags to take home, thus avoiding the question of what to eat between now and New Year's eve, when the whole excess will be repeated again!
