I am so happy you are in such wonderful place - cook away... There is nothing better than love and food to feed the body and the soul.
I will spend part of Christmas day with my dear mother (or not so dear as the case may have been in the past). But, seriously, she has been wonderful and an anchor for me after many family issues have separated the family for decades. Perhaps we have found some peace and that is what this holiday is truly about for me.
So, prayers for peace are in my heart and wishing you all the best! Take care...
