We spent Christmas at my mom's new house, and it's SO awesome having her live close by. We haven't lived this close since I left for college, and I love being able to see her every day. I feel really lucky that she decided to move to San Francisco. Her holiday menu featured an assortment of yummy tamales. The night before, we had Maine lobster, which Nick steamed in our new immense lobster pot. We're making it our new holiday tradition on Christmas Eve (our other tradition is having fondue on New Year's Eve). Next year, though I'm going to find myself a crab, because I think I actually like it better than lobster, which, by the way, is just a little bit scary looking:
Wait, make that really scary looking.
