Tonight is the first Sabbath Feast of Advent, and coming hard on the heels of Thanksgiving, it is hard to think of cooking much. So we are having a spiral-cut ham which simply requires heating, and a large vat of homemade mac and cheese. We will light the Advent candle and I will give the children their Advent calendars (one per family, not one per child), and we will rejoice together at the coming of Christmas.
Today is also the twins’ second birthday, so it is a triple celebration: Sabbath, Advent, and birthday. This is another reason for the kid-friendly menu. Expect pictures of the cupcake extravaganza, and Happy Advent to you all!
