Well the presents are opened and now comes my favorite part: sitting and reading one of the books that I've been given. Today's selection is The French Laundry Cookbook by Thomas Keller. I can't wait to try some of these recipes. It's also inspired me to start saving my money in the hopes of going to the The French Laundry for dinner. I figure if I start saving a dollar or two every day (in a jar with the label "French Laundry Dinner Fund") I should have enough saved by May or so, when the weather will be delightful in Napa. That means around March I'll have to start calling to try and get my reservation. I think it will be worth it.
Enjoy your day and your presents if you're of the Christmas persuasion. If you're not, please enjoy your day nonetheless.
