Flaky Spinach Garlic Pinwheels
I could see the twinkle of the white lights on our Christmas tree as I pulled out of our driveway yesterday. There they were, the bright sight that reminds me that the holiday season is here. It’s time to be merry and be joyful.
All over, houses are lit up with light displays — from bushes in the yard to the snowman at the front door. And as I look at them, driving from home to wherever, I think about how I’ll decorate our house next year — when I hope to have a house to decorate.

In the doorway, a kissing ball that I bought as a joke years ago hangs as it does every year. And around our living room, nutcrackers and tabletop decorations make the room feel even more festive.
Perhaps this week, I’ll even string lights creatively across a wall.
