Now that we’ve toasted the wonderful champagne offerings from France, we will journey to Spain and Italy to sample their sparkling wines for our around-the-globe holiday celebration. Cava hails from Spain and Prosecco is Italy’s bubbly beverage. Both wines are usually less regulated and therefore more reasonably priced than their “cousins” from France!
I am fortunate to have my wife Margaret to handle most of the holiday details in our family. If I were in charge, I imagine I would be like the Christmas version of Paul Revere, calling out, “The holidays are coming! The holidays are coming!”
Happy Hanukkah to those of you who are already in the midst of your holiday celebration.
My wife Margaret is the oldest child in her family. With nine kids following her, Thanksgiving in her house growing up was always memorable. As my own Thanksgiving table was tame by comparison, I thought you might enjoy hearing Margaret’s stories as you and your family create your own stories this Thanksgiving!
