Christmas Craziness — La folie de Noël

Le parc, en hiver

Only two short weeks before we pack up to leave for France, Ireland and Copenhagen, to spend Christmas with P.’s and my families. And so many things that I still have to do. Are you feeling as overwhelmed as I am, trying to have everything done within ten days?

I will be glad when we are on the plane, and let it all happen. Thinking, and planning are consuming!

Well, all this to let you know that I have many recipes ready, that I wish to share.

Si, si !

But I am really lacking the time to write.

Tomorrow, I hope to give you one recipe. There will be a bûche de Noël too. We ate one last week with friends. I will tell you now. It has chocolate, and coconut.

So we have a date together, don’t we? I even hear that it is supposed to snow a lot tomorrow. Another good reason to do some more baking.

  1. I’m all nervous and giddy, anxious for our date and our bûche de Noël. I hope I don’t say or do something to ruin it.

  2. Have a fabulous holiday-will miss your writing. Looking forward to more great photos from your travels!

  3. I just discovered your blog and photo site and just wanted to tell you that you’re an inspiration. I’m a novice food blogger/photographer . . . I started my blog about a month and a half ago . . . and have been scanning the Web for talented blogger-photographers since. You’re undoubtedly among the most talented I’ve come across. I’ve be returning to your blog often. Happy holidays and safe travels!

  4. Have a great time with your family.
    You are going to so many places.
    Looking forward to the bûche de Noël .
    Happy Christmas

  5. Ho ho I wish I could think I’d have a snow day for baking! Oh my planning is so consuming, yes. Love how you say get on the plane and let it happen. That is always a good moment when you know you’ve done the best you can and really things do work out very well.
