Nothing fancy? LOL... that would be really fancy, here! Your dinner looks gorgeous!

Everything had to be transported, so I had it all done on Christmas Eve.

The Gingered Sweet Potatoes with Black Walnuts was a hit with the few people who like sweet potatoes. My SIL magic-ed away the left-over cheesecake before returning me my pan. The Macadamia-Almond Brittle was wildly popular with a few people, while most preferred the dime-a-dozen, commodity peanut brittle.

No, you didn't miss any pictures. My potatoes made it to dinner, but I didn't. I've been sick as a dog off/on for the last week. I'll survive, though.
