Mom and I have been busy the last few days trying to get our Christmas presents together. She has been busy making oodles to these chocolate wreaths that she heard about on Oprah. She also made a artichoke/roasted garlic bread dippers. We found some fantastic Califorinia (very plump) grapes, pears, apples, tangerines, wasabi peas (at Mom's favorite local vegetable/fruit stand - Star Market), mom made a infused salad dressing and then added a bottle of good red wine we found on sale, chocolate truffles and my hand-made cork reindeer ornaments. So we decided to put together some baskets for neigbors and co-workers. The putting together of those items is the fun part!
