have yourself a merry little Christmas
Two kinds of sauteed pears: one batch with white zinfandel, another batch with dried lavender flowers. Absolutely yummy with Haagen Dazs vanilla bean ice cream.
Lavender honey hot chocolate, made with unsweetened, Spanish-style chocolate tablets from the Philippines (thanks, Mom!), dried lavender, raw honey, and soy milk...my attempt to re-create the liquid truffles from my favorite chocolate place in Asheville, NC.
Christmas carols, sung by a choir from Cincinnati, playing in the background.
A celebration of love and friendship.
Have a joyful and peaceful holiday with your family and loved ones!
