2016 flew by so quickly, as did another holiday season centered around a Christmas feast. Not unlike past years, this Christmas was a tale of two meals – one celebrated on each side of the family. Lunch is a large buffet-style potluck affair, hosted by my aunt and uncle (who prepare most of the food). My grandmother handles most of dinner preparation, which is a bit more meat-centric.

As usual, there were plenty of leftovers which were enjoyed for many days to come. It was great to enjoy another Christmas with family and friends and I look forward to next year’s!
