In all modesty and abject humbleness, I will say that the nut loaf was superb! However, I now remember why I don't make it often - it takes quite a while to assemble and uses almost every pan in your kitchen, not to mention small appliances. It's worth it, if just once a year. I also made a new kind of cheese ball that was quite a hit. Unfortunately, there are no pictures of either, since I started at 4A on the nut loaf and didn't stop until I stumbled out the door at 10A to load the car.
The dogs were perfect - from suffering through their Christmas sweater/JimJams, to not begging too much. They had way too many treats and Peanut was in heaven, jumping from lap to lap. Then their auntie gave them their squeaky toys and it was happy pandemonium.

When we finally straggled home, the dogs went right to their sofa, under their blankets and didn't move until I made them go out this morning. A good time was had by all!
I hope y'all had the kind of holiday you hoped for!
|Isn't she darling?
