This week we’re sharing our holiday entertaining traditions in the Vamplit Blog. It’s all about family when it comes to entertaining at our house. The biggie is a New Years brunch that we host. Lots and lots of food and festivities. And, we have a topic for New Years over in the Vamplit Blog later this month, so I’ll save all the details for then.
We don’t attend many holiday parties, just because there don’t seem to be as many as there used to be, especially of the workplace type. So far this year we’ve missed the first we were invited to attend due to my never-ending flu. No one wanted to host a neighborhood party/cookie exchange, and if I’m not better, we’ll miss my critique group’s party too. As you can tell, I’m a bit perturbed that I can’t seem to fight off this crud.
On a happy note, our Christmas entertaining is changing this year. Michael and I usually spend the evening alone, sharing really good steaks, lobster and crab legs with our spoiled beagles. This year both my sons and future daughter in-law will join us. YAY! I planned a more elaborate meal this year, still with the steak and seafood, and I expect the boardgames will come out as well.
What are your family entertaining traditions?
