We had a great dinner last night with latkes and brisket. Cheesecake for dessert and I made fruit tarts from a mincemeat recipe I found. No meat. Since I cannot remember ever having mincemeat pie, I cannot compare to the traditional version, but I liked this one. It has cranberry, apple, cherry, brandy, pecans and all the lovely spices that make the whole house smell yummy. It was great to have the day off from work so I could make dinner without rushing.

After dinner with almost the whole family, we sat down to watch the latest Harry Potter movie. The sound was not right and we couldn’t hear the conversation so we stopped and worked on the various plugs. In the process we also broke the cabinet wheels that has all the components. The cabinet is about 40 years old and not that well made so it is definitely time for something new! Anyway, once the audio was tweaked, the sound was much better, the movie was so-so.

It was good to have family gathered together. Next weekend end we should have the whole gang. Yeah!
