Christmas 2013

This Christmas involved decorating a Christmas tree:


We went to a Christmas concert at the Cathedral of the Madeleine, in which the choristers from the  Madeleine Choir School performed Britten's "A Ceremony of Carols":


We saw the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Leonardo, and the Christmas lights in Temple Square.

And lo, there was much baking! First, chocolate-dipped pecan wedges, orange spice drops, and chocolate chip cookies:


Then pies were baked: lavender caramel apple pie (flowery lavender caramel is amazing) and pumpkin pie (I was able to make a few jam tarts with the leftover pie dough, too):

  

I prepared apple cinnamon steel-cut oatmeal in the crockpot for breakfast this morning; the Christmas goose is cooking away, and soon so will the sausage stuffing, oven-roasted cauliflower, and buttermilk biscuits be in the oven as well.
