We bought this tree from a neighbor down the road. The woman who lives there is charging people $20 to cut down a tree. She wants to clear her property. And we found this perfect, blue spruce! Isn’t it beautiful. We forget to take a picture of me cutting it down.
Kim has decided that we are going to plant a Christmas Tree grove. So we also bought a live tree. You know, we could just up root a tree and plant it on our property. Next year, I’ll get a picture of me cutting down a tree. There are so many great trees on her property. Next year, she wont be advertising but we’re invited back.
I’m making Raclette sandwiches and then I’ll make eggnog and pastry, probably some puff paste squares with some frangipane that I’ll make. Then we decorate the tree and drink my famous eggnog and my even more famous pastry. Don’t worry, you’ll get some of pastry next year. Tomorrow we’ll be eating my very famous Almost Welsh Pasties with demiglace and asparagus with Sauce Espagnole.
