Including all the recipes from Thanksgiving dinner, I have now made 294 recipes from The Book, which means that I have only 999 left to go! It's exciting to be under a thousand for the first time!
The Christmas lights are starting to go up in my neighborhood! For those of you who live in the area, if you've never seen the Christmas lights in my neighborhood, you should take a walk over here some night. It's amazing! Somerville has a Christmas lights tour bus that goes past all the most decorated houses in the city, and it goes down my street! That's how many lights there are. Do any of you remember that house down the street when I lived on Speridakis? The house with all the lawn ornaments... (or hoopdefrantz if you ask Mark!). My neighborhood now has a half a dozen houses like that around Christmas time! It's amazing. I miss the year-round nature of that lawn ornament house though. It was beyond tacky, but at the same time, it brought me such joy! They came up with such amazing lawn ornaments for every imaginable holiday. Near the Fourth of July it was as if the American flag exploded in their front yard. You actually could not see the grass through all the red, white, and blue. And there was the American flag disco ball! Does anyone else remember that? Mike? Chris? I wish I had taken pictures. I wonder if they still live there...
