Christmas Kitchen

With Christmas but a week away I have decided I better get my decorating done today. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here, even in the kitchen. It is my plan to get all things seasonal done before the day is done, Ha!

Living in the Sunshine State of Florida does make for a bit of a difference in the decorations. Since this is our first Christmas here we decided to add a palm tree for the occasion and I could think of no better tree topper than my Baby Squid from my pal Wednesday Elf at Coastal Crochet Crafts.

Now, I must admit I am not the Kitchen Queen, so for a bit of my kitchen fun you might enjoy reading about me whipping up a bit of Zabaglione for the first time: Yes, I stepped out of my comfort zone and into the kitchen and I had a jolly good time!

So this was supposed to be a Wordless Wednesday post, but I see I have been a bit wordy as usual, but that's alright, I'm still linking up with Abracabadra for the blog hop!


  1. I don't think I could do wordless post any day of the week, Ruth. I love the Palm tree for Christmas with Elf's creation on top instead of a star, etc.

  2. The Elf is a very talented crocheter and I do love the place you found for your little squid. (who is really Cthulhu!)

  3. I have to go find out now what the heck Zabaglione is. New one for me :)
    Happy WW! Love the Palm tree. I love everything about Florida especially now since I'm almost buried in snow and freezing.

    1. Zabaglione is delicious, Susan, and here's the direct link:

  4. So cute! I would like one of those for sure! I am looking for ways to spice up my Christmas collection.

  5. The sunshiny yellow baby octopus - squid - Cthulhu (take your pick) makes a shiny bright 'star' on your Florida Christmas tree, and I'm so pleased to have been instrumental in you acquiring it. Thanks a whole bunch for the 'mention' and sharing my link. You are the 'Christmas Angel' your yellow baby squid replaced.

  6. I love that palm tree, Roth and why not do something outside the bun :)

    Merry Christmas :)
    Thanks for linking up!

  7. Who needs a star when you have a squid? Lovely tree!

  8. My parents lived in Fl for several years and regularly had to decorate for the holidays when it was 80 degrees. I've never had that fun. The yellow adds a great splash of color and fun!


I appreciate your comments!
Blessings & a bit o' sunshine!
