This plate is more than just a holiday meal. This plate represents the first Christmas dinner that Tanya and I hosted at our home. It's significant for several reasons:
We love to eat and entertain
If you couldn't tell from reading this blog, both my wife and I love to eat. We also love to entertain. So having Tanya's family over for Christmas was the opportunity to may our love for food and the happiness of sharing that with the people we love.
Christmas is a chance to celebrate the birth of Jesus with family and friends. While we were able to host, we were also able to go up to my parent's house in NJ and spend time with my family.
A healthy Christmas
Lastly, this year was happy because last year this time, Tanya's dad was in the hospital. Instead of spending time cooking, we were spending time visiting him in the hospital. It's a blessing to have him around and it's a reminder to cherish the time we have with all of those who are close to us.
