Many thanks to all our Bites readers and commenters, who add spice and seasoning to this strange brew 365 days a year. We'll be back with new posts on Monday, Jan. 5--but Carrington and I will be checking in from time to time, and we'll keep this an open thread for anyone who wants to drop by. Let us know what you get for the holidays, what and where you've been cooking and eating, or what you're doing for New Year's--and pass along any tips or tidbits that just won't wait.
Best of luck in the coming year. And please spread the word about Bites!
