Countdown to Christmas: Stocking Up....

Yes, Christmas is about egg nog and wrapping and yummy food.  But there's also a practicality to the holiday season.  It takes preparation.  So here are two categories you better stock up on.
  • You'll probably have unexpected guests dropping in. Be ready to entertain them in style by supplementing your pantry with extra supplies of mixed nuts, assorted cheeses, olives, crackers, and some bubblies. 
  • For those same guests, have some homemade goodies ready.  Tins of cookies.  Jars of pickles or preserves. Homemade infused vinegars or vodkas.  You don't want them leaving empty-handed.
  • Got kids?  (Even if they're not yours.) Have plenty of batteries (AA, AAA, D) and a small screwdriver ready so you can open and energize those noisy electronic gifts that they will unwrap.
What else do you stock up on so you're ready for Santa's onslaught?  Comment below...
