Happy Holidays!

December 24, 2009


Happy Holidays!

I apologize for the radio silence lately on the blog. ‘Tis the season to be busy! But now with the shopping done, the gifts wrapped, cards ordered (not sent… the blog isn’t the only thing I have been neglecting), all I have to do now is prepare for a Christmas Eve with twelve of my favorite people in the world.

Here is a preview…

Picked up a medley of potatoes from the Town & Country market yesterday.


Put a wound up seven-year-old to work in the kitchen.



Peeling carrots is helpful in making a very long day a little more bearable.


And he did a pretty good job of it too. (Not to worry, I did help with the cutting.)


And then my kitchen help decided he had a better way to pass time on Christmas Eve.


Next up, prepping this bad boy for this evening’s dinner.



Nope, not intimidated at all.



Okay, a little intimated. I called Marsha in for reinforcements.


Got Christmas crackers from Lisa for the table. Check.



And plenty of wine glasses. Check. Check.


Just need to choose the right cookies for the big guy. Gotta keep Santa fed tonight too!


We will miss you this weekend, as McClendon’s Select will not be at the Old Town Scottsdale Market on Saturday, December 26th, but we will return to the market next Wednesday at Town & Country.

From all of the McClendons, we wish you and yours a wonderful holiday!

Merry Christmas!

    I wish I hadn’t looked at all those pictures because now I’m hungry! Hope the holiday was lovely and that you took a break from the kitchen at some point!
