How true this always is with Sandie Girl and how delighted I was to see her completed Christmas Stocking lovingly made for Bella.

 The stitchery is so creative and utterly amazing and the love and care that went into this is awesome.  Little details like the tail on the squirrel being raised up and all the other creative details….Bravo Sandie!!!

Met The Pie at Bloomies for some lunch and Christmas shopping….Check out their shopping bag.  I’m taking the advice and seeing who’s been ‘naughty’ and who’s ‘nice’.

Back again to Bloomies for more Christmas shopping. Of course it’s always joyful to see beautiful Mary and I had a smoothie to celebrate! Surprised?

 Fortified it was time to do some Christmas shopping at Bloomies.  I love Sedic….she’s about the most loving, joyful soul on planet earth and it’s a treat for me to be able to purchase something at her ‘Jo Malone’ section in Bloomies.

 Mom seems to love the ‘Habit’ burgers best of all and I’m addicted to their lettuce wraps!  Anything with fries works for Nikka!  Note:  The Caesar Salad with Chicken is good too!

 My happy place?  Of course it’s ‘Pirch’ and what better than a cooking class there with Sweet Amy! See the bacon???

 Amy wants to get a Wood Stone Oven……So I do too!

 Oh my…the perfect tomatoes…..They would go into the blender with assorted onion, herbs and such for the lasagna….

 …. and the Pork Chorizo that Amy browned.

That would be layered with the Béchamel that I made along with lots and lots of grated cheese.IMG 7525

 Oh sooooo cheesy good!

These fried won tons were so delicious I can’t even begin to describe them…

Amy made the squash and I got to pour a ton of Maple Syrup on top!IMG 7561

We hated to eat and run but it was time for the ‘Lincoln Center at the Movies’ at the AMC.  The Nutcracker is an all time favorite at Christmas and this was a film of the New York City Ballet’s production with choreography by George Balanchine.  Of course everyone loves Tchaikovsky! Here’s the famous grand pas de deux!

IMG 7596Time for desert.  Back to Pirch we went where John and Jiro (correct….his name is actually Gerald) were whipping up some mighty wicked deserts.

Miniature pound cakes topped with melted Brie & Chocolate Sauce.  How bad could it be?

Jiro was an artiste at decorating the Gingerbread Men…..
