Now that the final expected Christmas package has arrived, it's probably time to take down the Christmas decorations. I'll miss the mini nativity scene and the tinsel and the cards with Curious George in a Santa hat, but it's time to move on.
Trevor had an excellent birthday. Mostly we celebrated by eating and drinking (so what else is new?). We started with leftover pizza from the brazier+ skillet experiment (best one yet!). Lunch was smoked salmon from America on crackers with cheese. Yowza! In the afternoon, Trevor finally located the elusive Guy Who Sells Castle Milk Stout. After he searches for a year, the guy appears on his birthday. Coincidence, or birthday miracle?
In the evening, the family called us over to see them cooking the Zambian gourmet delight of the day: stewed locusts the size of my thumb. Alas, we were too full of Trader Joe Indian food to sample any.
