09:11 am Yesterday was our family get-together for Hanukkah, with a bit of brunch and a gift card Yankee Swap game to top it off. My beloved's apple butter and ginger apple sauce were very much appreciated. I had suggested that we bring gift cards for Red Lobster as our contribution; forestcats found also Joe's Crab Shack to embellish the idea. The two added a certain levity to the proceedings. Uncle Joe ended up with the latter, and seemed satisfied. I can't recall who finished with Red Lobster in hand. I ended with a Nordstrom's card; I traded it with my youngest niece for her iTunes card to our mutual satisfaction.
