Just about the time the freezer and refrigerator are depleted of Thanksgiving leftovers, it’s time to start the Christmas food frenzy. Family+food=festivities. That’s the formula in our house during the holiday season.
But gathering in the kitchen isn’t just about eating the meals. While we’re sauteing, slicing, and dicing, we’re devising new recipes, reshaping old ones, and sharing stories. And even though all of this provides the stuff of which memories are made, there are a few moments of panic that can prove irksome. Like the doorbell announcing surprise guests or when you’re dressing for a party and remember you’d volunteered to bring an appetizer.
