I didn't get to Milka's for Santa showing up. I didn't get to the Christmas parade. And, instead of my usual merry making on Christmas spent with a slightly and ever changing cast of characters surrounding a core group for holiday dinner, I spent it instead with some long-time friends who used to live here and come back when they can.

Weirdly, Lorraine and I both have a Cuban connection from old family ties. So I brought guava and cream cheese, something we had at holidays, though I couldn't find Cuban crackers (then I did in Genesis, but I'd already got another kind). Then the girls added some of Zaco Taco's green sauce which I never would have thought of doing. What a combo! Of course, this is also (minus the green sauce) very popular here, but I always think of Cuba and my father.
