Well folks, how was it? I bet it was fantastic! Once the rush of buying Christmas gifts, getting them wrapped, delivered and presented, opened and enjoyed (Whew!) it gets that much easier, right? Just like cruise control šŸ˜€

Of course, when the rush is over it’s time to get out and visit friends and family; see those you haven’t seen in awhile or those you see often throughout the year. After all, giving is more than just gifts. The shut-ins, the elderly, the sick in hospital, they all need and appreciate the company and warmth. And what better time than now to get out and about and do just that: visit, visit, visit!

And after all the hustle and bustle don’t forget to take a little quiet downtime for yourself! Recharge those internal batteries – after all it’s another full year ahead before we do it all over again!!! (Okay, okay, let’s not go there lol)

From all of us here at The Reluctant Chef we’d like to take this opportunity to extend a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year to each and every one of you. Oh, and one last thing: Peace! Peace on Earth and Good Will to all Men.

Practice that…it goes a long way! All the Best for 2018.

Team Reluctant Chef
