Merry Christmas!

Ristras New MexicoA quick note to wish everyone a very happy Christmas! I’m home with the fam in New Mexico,which is packed with southwestern decorations, like the dried chili ristras above, at my best friend’s house. Outside, the luminarias are glowing — brown paper bags that line the streets (including ours, and our driveway) with a lit candle in each. Inside, the cookie jars are filled with Mom’s homemade creations. Our dinners are always a mix of Italian traditions and New Mexican specialities, such as every Italian cold cut and cheese you can imagine, with spicy Sadie’s salsa and homemade guacamole on the side. I love it.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
