I went to a Holiday Party at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library last night. In the atrium there was Christmas music being played on the grand piano, in the music room there was a wonderful jazz singer with a pianst & cello player and lovely tables of food throughout. & of course, there was wine & eggnog, too! The highlight of the party though was the hundreds & hundreds of shortbread cookies that the Chefs at Girard Gourmet made for this event. Angels, each one different, lined the shelves above the books. Angels with musical instruments greeted us at the door. Nutcracker cookies decorated the Music room. & one huge table showed the Girard family farm with chickens and other farm animals in the East County. Then the tabletop scene showed all the little houses and businesses moving to the Village of La Jolla all the way to the wild life at the Cove! I was so delighted to see Pelican, seal, sea lion & fish cookies!
