My Dickensian Christmas Party last night was a smashing success. The eleven-plus pounds of pork roast marinated for three days in a Nigella Lawson-inspired brine bath went in a flash, and everyone brought such amazing dishes (Black Forest trifle, Mexican meat loaf, eggnog thumbprint cookies, broccoli casserole). It was just what it was meant to be. A group of people celebrating their thanks for each other around a lot of incredible food.
Maybe it was the formal wear, or the roast, or the champagne flutes, but this party felt very grown-up to me. I wonder how old you need to get before you stop marveling that you're an adult.
