Merry Christmas one and all. This is a little hard to do. We are without family and although we like to think it is okay to be away, it is a very lonely time without family around. This morning we had breakfast and then headed off to church. It was a beautiful old church and a lovely ceremony.
This afternoon we just sat around waiting to dinner.
Our children gave us a dinner at Tujagues. This menu consisted of 5 courses. It was a shrimp salad with horseradish sauce; a corn and sweet potato soup with crawfish; then came a boiled beef and really strong horseradish sauce.
Now we get to the main course of roast turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet potato and an oyster dressing. Dessert came and it was a beautiful bread pudding with a caramel sauce. (Pain perdu)
I had a beautiful couple of glasses of a chilled sauv. blanc wine. Don had an O’Douls. Coffee rounded out the dinner and we are now home, safe and sound.
Thank you kids. Tonmorrow is a super busy . We are off to the swamp and plantations.
