Every year Allison has a holiday party. This year, instead of just a party, she made dinner. And a really great one, at that. We had some smoked salmon with herbed goat cheese on toasted French bread to start things off. Then we had tenderloin with balsamic onions and horseradish sauce, au gratin potatoes with bacon, creamy mashed potatoes and green beans. No one could believe that Allison had never cooked tenderloin before. It was fantastic.

A lot of people brought desserts. Jen & Chris brought fudge made using Rachael Ray’s 5-minute recipe, Barbara made chess pie, and I brought the cookies I’d made earlier in the day. It was a fun, filling party.

    How is it you’re younger than I am but end up doing so many more “grown-up” activities?

    I think I missed an exit of the immaturity highway somewhere…
