December 24-27, 2008 Feasting

It is impossible to separate the last four days into distinct dinners. Feasting has been the rule of the day, here at home and at the homes of family. Christmas dinner itself was a delightful entity shared with my wife alone (steamed crab, fruit, cheeses, dates, cold asparagus spears, chiabata, and a truly elegant meursault), but it continued through to Boxing Day, and seemed to blend right in from Christmas Eve dinner buffet and Christmas morning breakfast. Not to mention non-stop snacking upon a host of treats and lovelies of rare delight. sigh. I believe I am ready for month of salad and meager fare.
