Family brunch at Jeanne's at noon. Mary will pick me up at 9:30 and I'll spend the morning watching over the steaming of Mom's Christmas pudding and putting the ingredients of her foamy yellow sauce in her copper double boiler. We always steam Mom's pudding in the tall pot that she used for boiling Kate's milk bottles in Aruba, way back in the day in Aruba. Perfect pot for steaming pudding. This will be the final year for this particular pudding. We'll save a serving to dump into the 'new'pudding to be assembled next summer. By adding in the old, the pudding will carry-on as the one we've been eating for decades. Here's the video Mary B made of the making of the last pudding, made the year that Mom broke her hip. I remember taking the pudding down to Virginia Mason to her physical therapy group so she could tell the story of the pudding and each person could make a wish and stir the pudding. There are a lot of wishes in this pudding we'll eat today.
Thanks to my family for a frenetic, loved-filled Christmas Day. Bonnie Boxing Day to all.
