Crocheted Tree Ornaments
Oh! It's been a festive weekend in the Bloom - Underhill world. On Friday I gifted my co-workers with their wristys
. Everyone seemed delighted!
On Saturday my good friend, Rhoda and I went to brunch at Musso & Frank's
in Hollywood for a classic meal, then sauntered across the street to the El Capitan Theater
to see "Enchanted
" with a few thousand mini-princesses in various stages of tutu-dress. After the movie we saw a few super heroes on Hollywood Boulevard and treated ourselves to a creampuff at Beard Papa
at the Hollywood & Highland
On Sunday, Larry and I went to Peter Shire's Echo Park Pottery
Sale, Future Studio
's Open Studio and then to a friends' home in Glassel Park for a little Christmas party. I'll be sharing the photos of those events with you later in the week.
Today, after I meet up with the Eastside Girls for Montrose Monday knitting, I have to scurry around town to get the ingredients together to make a nice Christmas Eve dinner for my "generic gentile" (his words) husband. I'm trying to re-create the dinners of Larry's childhood Christmas Eves. We're having ham, lima beans & corn (succotash), au gratin potatoes and a green salad. By green salad, I don't mean the kind with green Jello. I just couldn't go that far back into the nutritionless 50's and 60's. We really need SOMETHING fresh at this dinner!
I've baked a bunch of stuff for our neighbors....gingerbread cake, cranberry-raisin orange cake, sugar cookies, so that's probably what we'll have for dessert, unless I get inspired and decide to whip up my fave pumpkin ice-cream pie in a graham cracker crust.
Have a wonderful holiday celebration everyone!
