Off to dads side of the family christmas. They love brunch for every occassion, with quiche, flan, bloody marys, one of our cousins is vegan so there’ll be plenty of food for maur & i. Unlike my mums side who cant grasp that we don’t eat meat, ” how do you get your protein?” Also dads side is tiny, about 16 people, with a few more over in PA, where as Mums side has almost 100 and growing, no lie. It’s so early this year cos everyone is going away for a tropical christmas, no thanks- I need chilly weather & snow, if it happens. Anyway, it’s being held at my cousins, in one of those giant old houses in Newburyport, so I am excited!
