Glaedelig Jul to Everyone!
We’re busy with family stuff (good stuff), but I figured I would break the blog silence to send you all some love and a quick little Holiday Greeting.
Tonight is the night we Danish folk traditionally have our big Christmas celebration so yesterday evening I made the special nisser-appeasing rice pudding and this morning I whipped it up into my drool-inducing ris-a-l’amande desert. The flavors of rice, cream, vanilla and almonds are now happily fusing together in the fridge with the aim of hitting peak deliciousness at around 6PM tonight.
As it so happens Cuban folk enjoy their 24th celebration too, so right around that time we’ll be driving over to Paul’s side of the family where we’ll be indulging in some traditional Cuban fare (can you say slow-roasted pork, black beans, rice, plantains….oh my!) before we finish off Danish-style with my rice pudding desert. Then we’ll enjoy a few after-dinner drinks and open some presents.
It’s the first time ever that we’ve had both sides of the family together including my dad, sister, her fiancee, and 7 folks from Paul’s side, so I am crazy excited about the party. I’ll also have lots more to share once my family leaves including our various sightseeing trips around Miami and whether renting a house made us miss having a stix & brix (want to guess?).
In the meantime whatever you might be celebrating this season or however you might be passing your time tonight and tomorrow, I wish you the warmest of greetings and the most joyful abundance of happy tidings. Glædelig Jul, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and love to all!
