holidays in the kitchen

Holidays in Louisiana revolve around some sort of food and drink and are always celebrated in the kitchen.  Conversations, laughter, singing - all over bread (and sometimes a little wine!).  I captured a few bits and pieces for you here.  I have a few more that I will share.  I hope that you had a wonderful and restful Christmas as well - thanks for all of your sweet comments and merry wishes!

Today actually begins one of my favorite weeks of the year.  The hustle and bustle of Christmas is finally over, but everyone is still in holiday mode.  The anticipation of the new year is near, and reflection begins.  I'm looking forward to 2011.

A few images I enjoyed over the weekend -

And finally, many thanks to all who have signed up for the Winter Photo Swap!
