i left everything to the last minute, which left me snowed in for the past week without a tree, and, as i discovered this afternoon, without a lot of food in the house. so for christmas eve dinner, i used a tray full of almost too-ripe vine ripe tomatoes for a curried peanut and tomato soup along with roasted potatoes and roast beef with dijon sauce. very unchristmas-y of us, but perhaps reflective of our unfestive mood. the snow and, in andrew's case, work, kept us from being home with our families this year, so it's just the two of us this. and of course the cat.
