It's still the Holiday SEASON, so this isn't really a late post :)
My friend Rachel lives in South Brooklyn, in Ditmas Park, where people own HOUSES. (Okay, so, she only has the first floor of a house, but it's still a HOUSE.) She even has a porch! It was too cold to sit out on the porch on that evening, but it was very cheery inside for her holiday party. She even had a tree like a legitimate grown-up.
I made two kinds of cookies to bring:
This all, plus Fleetwood Mac and Broadcast, plus seasonal beers were a perfect way to start the Holiday week.
