Usually, the thought of eating leftovers is not a happy one, but things are different during the holidays. In many ways, leftover food tastes better than it did when originally prepared, and certainly does not bear the burden of high expectations. I am rather down on high expectations ’round about now, and it is one of the reasons I am thankful that Christmas Day is over and done with so that we can move on to other things.
Our Christmas meal was honey mustard glazed ham, seven-layer salad, scalloped potatoes, caprese salad, stuffing, and crème brûlée for dessert. Also for dessert were some candies one of our kids made earlier. It was all very good.
Now that Christmas is past, I am feeling a little bit of cabin fever. I want to go out and about, but I’m struggling with motivation to do anything much. Such is life, and I realize how fortunate it is to be able to be sated with good food and at the same time, not do much of anything.
