The fever pitch of Christmas has descended upon our house. Last weekend, we ventured out in awful weather to procure our holiday tree. We have no short supply of trees around these parts, so we continued our tradition of finding a tree in the forest. We trend toward the Charlie Brown style usually, and this year I think we found a great specimen. Success! You can also tell by the look on Porter's face that he almost can't take the anticipation anymore.

I'm Cooking: I've made two halibut chowders over the past couple of weeks. They are very different, but both excellent. Halibut Bisque from the Fiddlehead Cookbook, and Halibut Sweet Potato Chowder. Great dishes for a cold winter night.


  1. I love the look on Porter's face. It's so incredibly adorable!

  2. Oh my gosh! That look on Porter's face is awesome! We also have white tinsel on our tree. Brian made fun of me for it, but I think it's pretty :)
