Merry Christmas!

I wanted to wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas. I hope that you’re all having a wonderful day with your family and friends, enjoying lots of good company, cheer, and food. I made pumpkin pancakes for breakfast from my Biltmore cookbook and later on will be making carrot pudding and macaroni and cheese from my Colonial Williamsburg Taverns cookbook to go with tonight’s Christmas feast. In addition to pumpkin pie that my grandmother made, I also made a bread pudding with caramel sauce for dessert.

In honor of today’s holiday, I thought the below picture from 1890 of pilgrims entering Bethlehem at Christmastime was perfect since it’s both holiday and travel related.

Merry Christmas!

A note to all my readers,

I meant to post this sooner but I still want to wish you all the merriest of Christmases and the happiest of New Years! May 2011 be filled with achievements, happiness, and lots of travel! 
I did want to share with you my three favorite presents this year (and they were all travel/global related):
1) Madhur Jaffrey’s latest cookbook featuring a selection of recipes from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh (I have grown to love Indian food!)
2) National Geographic’s Passport to the Best-the 10 Best of Everything, An Ultimate Guide for Travelers
(this book is incredible!)
3) An Aztec warrior and a female matador calavera (in case you aren’t familiar with what calaveras are, they are skeletons associated with the Day of the Dead holiday. I have a growing collection of them including a skeleton bride and groom as well as Frida Kahlo ๐Ÿ™‚
-the red headed traveler
