Christmas at the Chateau de Cheverny
I’ll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree
“I’ll Be Home for Christmas” is a Christmas perennial written by the lyricist Kim Gannon and composer Walter Kent and recorded in 1943 by Bing Crosby, who scored a top ten hit with the song. The song is sung from the point of view of a soldier stationed overseas during World War II, writing a letter to his family. In the message, he tells the family he will be coming home and to prepare the holiday for him.
So, with that little intro, I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and hope that you are all home with your family and friends, enjoying delicious nibbles and a glass of bubbly in front of a roaring fire.

Sometimes the best way to work through a tragedy is to immerse yourself in a familiar routine. Personally, I need comfort food. So, today I am going to talk about one of my favorite restaurants and probably the best deal on the planet: Las Cuatros Milpas. For me, and many others, the front door of this restaurant is a time-warp portal. I walk through and step back in time. Whenever I am in San Diego, this is always one of my “go to” stops.
