Christmas Time in the City

Well, I’m not doing much cooking, and at times, not even doing much eating. Things are moving faster than a sleigh drawn by eight reindeer. And, the signs of the season are everywhere in Manhattan…





Walk carefully to dodge the giant Toy Soliders from outer space...

As the temperature plunges, there's time for a little tapas with an old friend at Meson Sevilla on West 46th Street. The garlic shrimp and chorizo warms the bones, as does the Red Sangria ...



Dropping in at home, there are still lots of preparation to be done, and this Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili from the blog "eat me, delicious" makes for a hearty holiday supper.

Just be sure to leave time to hang the holiday lights!

What a delightful stroll through the city that never sleeps. New York is so beautiful at this time of year. I'll have to check out Meson Sevilla soon.

Thank you for the wonderful tour of the city. I'm sure by now it's covered in white.
Hope you have a great holiday.

Tapas, Sangria and Christmas Time in the City; a scenario that's sure to light up a reindeer's heart.

It's times like this that remind me. New York will never be far while I have your stirring posts at my finger tips.

Thank you, T.W.

TW,
There is nothing like Christmas in NYC, but it's too cold to go outside and enjoy this weekend! (never mind the foot of snow we are getting!).
Happy Holidays.
Stacey
