Snow is pretty rare on Nantucket; the blizzard from last week brought us just enough to make it a Winter Wonderland minus the hassle.

For the past couple of years my cousin and I have taken her children into NYC on Christmas Eve; our usual stops are Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, FAO and the 5th Avenue windows. This year it was super cold and one of the twins had a broken arm but everyone was a trooper and I can't wait to do it all again in 2010. Our first stop was the mini train display in Grand Central Station.

On Monday I left PA and headed to White Plains, NY, to have a visit with Aunt Nancy (yummy dinner at City Limits!). On Tuesday I went to Grandma's house and she treated me to my favorite German meal of Karl Ehmer Weisswurst and spaetzle (who's jealous?).
You take the flour and egg mixture and pour it into the spaetzle maker over a pot of boiling water. The dough drips into the water below and makes tiny dumplings, like rain drops.
Meanwhile, have the Weisswurst going. They are from a butcher in NY that is so good, I grew up on these and they are my absolute favorite, our family enjoys them for special occasions and holidays.
