"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Sugar cookies are a must at Christmas! It's fun to decorate them with icing and sprinkles. If you don't want to go the work of icing them; you can use a glass to cut out the cookies and sprinkle sugar on top (can also use colored sugar for extra "sparkle").
