Merry Christmas! I’m not afraid to say it, ‘cuz it means Happy Holidays.
I made scones again this year. Maple Oat Scones. I made enough to feed an army. I made them to take to parties. I made them for friends and I made them for neighbors. I feel pretty good right now. Just don’t offer me a scone. I have had my fill!
But hopefully you haven’t because I have attached a video of me making said scones. Don’t I look happy making them? Fa la la la la, la la la la?
So make the jump to the next page and watch my annual scone making tradition for yourself.
Speaking of traditions, where I live, there is a traveling Christmas Carol Caravan. You can see it in the video. It goes all around the streets of Toluca Lake. It’s smaltzty, it’s a bit tacky, it is far too garish. But Gosh Dern if I don’t love it! You must have something similar in your neighborhood. I hope you enjoy it and enjoy your neighbors at the same time. Scream and moan about their crappy parking abilities the rest of the year, or roll your eyes at their pushy in-laws some other time, go ahead and wish they were quieter on Sunday mornings next week. But today, tonight, and tomorrow…get out there and say Happy Holidays to each and every one of them. I know I will. ‘Cuz it means Merry Christmas. GREG
