I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas!! We did have a white one, but woke up with no power. Luckily, it came on and my mom cooked our very traditional Christmas breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, homemade gravy, and the best biscuits anywhere in the world. I can tell you there are no biscuits like hers. They are perfection. No chef, no cook, no one can make them like her. I could post her recipe, but they would not be like hers. She needs to write a cookbook. Paula Deen could just move on over because my mom is the best southern cook in the world:-)
This is the end of Christmas for some, but it is just the beginning for us! We will have Christmas dinner today with my brother and his family here from Georgia. Then, as is the custom in Puerto Rico, we will celebrate "Los Reyes Magos" (the three kings) with the children. On the night of January 5, the three kings bring gifts. The children will leave grass in a box under their beds for the kings' camels to eat. This is to observe when the wise men came to visit baby Jesus.
So we will not be taking any decor down until after the New Year! I will be posting a "Three Kings" tablescape with a runner from some wonderful fabric I bought in Turkey with camels, that I cannot wait to do. In the meantime, I hope you are all enjoying your family and friends.
Anita and family
