Happy New Year! I hope 2022 is a good year for everyone. Over the Holiday, my mom and I cooked and shared food with family. The recipe that stole the turkey's thunder was my mom's cranberry sauce recipe. It was fun, tasty and a great way to "tart' the New Year too! It has a nice blend of sweet and tart. The recipe is in our YouTube cooking channel called Alegre Gourmet. It's a hobby where we share our Mexican-Cuban family recipes. My mom and I collaborate showing you some great recipes.

The days leading up to Christmas, I worked with a client helping to gather their donations. It was a big project to help clear out their deceased relative's clothes, shoes, hats and gloves for donation. They wanted to reach the charity organizations before the holiday and before the real cold weather kicked in. My assistant and I cleared out the kitchen and gathered the kitchenware for donations too.
I returned to work after a year hiatus. I was hunkering down and social distancing for 2020-2021 and did not feel comfortable working in homes or offices during the peak of the Covid19 pandemic. The new challenge I encountered working on this project was finding a place to donate any items. I found its a bigger challenge than in the past. It is a lot more difficult to find a place to donate a truck load of items. Luckily, I found a few organizations who help refugees and immigrants get settled into their new homes. These organizations pass along the winter coats, hats, scarves and boots to people in need. The donation receipt will be a benefit to the owner who can use it as a tax deduction. The next stage of the project is setting up the consignment items and getting their premium clothing sold. It will be a fun project for these cold winter days,
