I’m getting ready to host our annual neighborhood Christmas party tomorrow night, and I’ve got visions of cheese and dessert trays dancing in my head today. Those are the foods that I provide for the party, and our friends and neighbors each bring something to share. Before I head off to the cheese shop (I hope to be able to choose several local cheeses for the tray this year), I want to leave you with a little light reading (as opposed to last Friday’s food and politics reading).

Enjoy your weekend!
