I do love playing Santa!

Nearly every year since moving to Toronto over 20 years ago I've had a few friends over at Christmas time. When I moved in with Rob he was kinda of nervous about this annual tradition of mine, not being the social guy, and worried he wouldn't be a good host. Now I think he looks forward to it as much as I do, and he actually pushed me to hold it this year when I had I decided I wasn't going too.

It's been a rough year for me emotionally, with my Mother's illness. These people have been a great support system for me. I'm truly blessed to have such wonderful friends in my life and enjoyed sharing some time with them to celebrate the holiday season.

Angie's Christmas Cheer!

I have been perfecting the recipe for this drink for the last four years, and this year I think I nailed it!

Angie's Christmas Cheer:

3 Cups Cranberry Cocktail
1 Cup Pineapple Juice
1 Cup 7Up or Sprite
1 Cup Vodka

Pour all ingredients into a pitcher, stir and refrigerate. Serve over ice.

Angie, thank Rob for his insistence on your annual Christmas event. It was a lovely evening, I'm so happy you decided to do it. Seeing you and the others was great. Your home made lobster chowder was so yummy, I had to have more than one bowl. To top things of, your "Christmas Cheer" drink, hit the spot too.
Thank you (both) for your invite & hospitality!

*Huge Hugs*
