So seriously-- that was a really long hiatus from blogging. In fact, I was MIA for so long that one of my readers actually wrote to make sure we were all still alive. Sorry guys!

We've been super busy in our house for the past couple of weeks, so much so that I didn't have any time to write about it, and so much so that I'm only going to give you a drive-by of everything we've done, cooked, and eaten over the holiday season.

First, we made this and served it as an appetizer with this entree... They make the perfect low-cost, low-effort, high-delicious appetizer!

Then, we went here for Christmas:

And while we were there, we saw this, this, and this... 

And then, we came back to New York, and we made this and this, which made an AWESOME hearty dinner. Highly recommended and wicked easy! (Especially if you don't make your own ginger ice cream, and you buy it, ready-made, from the grocery store instead.) 

With this meal, we also reveled with friends about the wonders of these two english condiments, which are truly magical. (And can make even the most bland english dinners come to life!)

And then we made a quasi-Chinese potluck dinner with this recipe and this recipe (which we served over steamed bok choy)... and Julia brought this dish, and we all agreed that it was one of the best not-actually-chinese-but-trying-to-be dinners that we've had outside of a chinese restaurant! 

And in the middle of that, Jules was doing this: 

Which was pretty darn cute... I'm not gonna lie. : ) 

Happy Holidays Everyone, and a very Happy New Year! 

Sorry we took such a long hiatus, but we're back to work and back to blogging now, so check back in later this week to see what we get up to next! 

In the wise words of my friend Meg Johnsen, 

2013 is going to be a glory! 

(Ps. My felt balls finally arrived, so making my decorative garland is at the top of the 2013 to-do list! Off to a good start!)
