Isadore Christmas Message
Here’s our recipe to create the perfect holiday spirit!
We’ve all been there and done it. We work too much and spend too much time at our jobs, then we’ve made a weekend or a vacation difficult for our friends and family because we have insisted on going for our rides before doing anything else. Maybe those nearest and dearest to us put up with it not because they love cycling but because they love us. So at this time of year, it seems only right to put our friends and family first, and set aside the bike for a few days at least. We’d like to help you also in your efforts to find the right life/cycling balance. So here’s our recipe to create the perfect holiday spirit...
A recipe for a stress-free holiday
Though the holidays with family and friends should be fun, certain preparations beforehand can help ease any strain.
*Two hours before party time – preheat house to the perfect temperature: 21°C to ensure grandma will be warm enough; if a fireplace is handy, keep the logs supplied so it can roar all evening.
*Once grandma and grandpa arrive, lightly grease grandpa with a plateful of cheesy nibbles, while generously plying grandma with a large kir vin blanc.
*When sisters and brothers arrive with their children, add two helpings of ginger cookies lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar. Let settle in everyone’s tummies before introducing the notion of handing out the presents.
*Once the anticipation levels rise, place the main course on the dining room table to give everyone a chance to enjoy the aromas and tell you what a wonderful job you have done in preparing the feast.
*Now that everyone’s gastric juices are all a flutter, you can begin to dish out the main course, or invite your guests to help themselves. A light murmur will likely fill the room as everyone’s attention turns from the conversation to the food. This is always a good sign and evidence of a successful spread.
*All that remains it to continue enjoying the company of all your friends and family who have come to join you celebrate this magical time of year. A walk in the fresh evening air is optional, and often the best way to top off a lovely meal.
From all of us at Isadore, we would like to wish you and your family a very happy holiday season, and say thank you for all your support this past year. We are looking forward to spending an exciting 2018 with you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
