Just a few flurries, but it was very seasonal for the Winter Solstice today.

We'll have a late Hanukkah celebration with my sister Amy's family and our stepmother tomorrow. There will be cheese (goat brie, lemon Stilton, mustardseed gouda, and cordobes) and crackers with fig jam and red grapes; latkes (shredded potato pancakes) with applesauce and sour cream; beef brisket made with beer; fresh spinach cooked with scallions and parsley; cucumber sunomono (made by [livejournal.com profile] smillaraaq); chocolate Hanukkah gelt (coins); and iced gingerbread cookies (made by The Young Lady) ... .

The smell of the gingerbread is killing me ... soooo good! It's a Smitten Kitchen recipe, which was in turn adapted from Martha Stewart. (No, they are not directly on top of the newspaper ... there's a sheet of waxed paper under them.)

And yay for holiday cards! Many thanks to everyone who's been sending them!
