‘A Christmas Memory’…Day 4

Day 4

…holes poked generously into each cooled loaf




eight cakesdampened with whiskey’ wait on the kitchen table


 to be carefully wrapped (but not before a sample is shared!), first in waxed paper, then foil; then to be stored for months and months to allow the flavors to mellow, ripen.


‘in four days our work is done’ but the memories will last forever!

Thank you, Cousin John!

and Bridget, Joe and Ellen, and now Zach for allowing me to share in the memories and the love!
