menu: tree lighting

'Shout-out' to May - who helped me make our own
'Christmas Tree' crudites platter, inspired by a recent 'pin' on Pinterest.

The first Thursday of December means one thing in Winchester - Tree Lighting on the Town Common.  Our sometimes sleepy town comes alive with students singing carols, lighting of the trees and the arrival of Santa on the Fire Department's ladder truck. DFs (dear friends) will join me with their kids for a little nourishment before the excitement - brought together by the shared circumstance of husbands with business commitments elsewhere. Check out our menu below -  I'll share my recipe for black bean soup this weekend!
heavy on the kid-friendly foods!

What traditions will you share with friends this season?
