A Kitchen Solstice (Christmas) 2008

Woke up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this holiday morning, put on my uniform and santa hat, walked into the bathroom... looked in the mirror and asked myself, "do I have elf blood in me?" I mean the ears.. the nose.. it's totally elfish.

The sweetest shrooms you'll ever taste.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm + Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm + Mmmmmmmmmmmm

Hey Paw look at this... all you can eat crab legs.

The bakers' art.

Larry, Curly, and Mo... I mean Linda, Doc, and Marci.

Elf boy stirring the soup.

The salad room ops.

There you go Eric... give it to her.

Micah on the line.

Chief setting things up.

Hi Doc.

The DA cartel.

The veterans.

The last big feast of the year.

This is half of what I ate...
