We have stayed in Virginia this year but our thoughts are with the Turley clan in Chicago. We are fortunate to have our Pittsburg family, the Rosens, with us this Christmas. We played a mean game of Monopoly last night (I was the first bankrupted). I made our traditional Cioppino soup — a tradition started by my late father, Jack Turley. I hated the soup as a kid so fate has left this tradition to me. I am now as addicted to the soup as my father was.
The Turley family wishes everyone a happy and safe holiday. We will have our traditional beef with Yorkshire pudding and other highlights. I will be toasting our blog family tonight and give thanks for the wonderful community we have created at this site.
