Today is the final day to receive recipes or suggestions for the 2020 Cocktail Party. Tomorrow the post goes up............in fact, most of it is already written. So if you want in, move your holiday hinder and start typing!
Rosa and I ventured over to Brighton Beach, NY yesterday evening to procure the fresh herring needed for our traditional Polish Christmas Eve dinner. They are currently soaking in brine and will eventually be wrapped around an onion and pickled. I almost wasn't going to make them this year and just buy pickled herring in a jar......but I'm glad I changed my mind. This is a rough year for maintaining enthusiasm.
I hope the cocktail party resonates with you all, especially since there are so many varied offerings and opportunities. But seriously, if you have something special you like around this time, whether alcoholic, nada, or even snack-wise. Send it in! Remember, the tagline for this year's party is "we need it more than ever".
