You always prepare us for The Christmas fuss”

"Salt?" I wrinkled my nose, and then widened my eyes. "Is that your secret ingredient?"
Sophie laughed. "Salt isn't a secret ingredient, doofus. Besides, you just add a pinch. Salt brings out all the flavors." She paused. "It's weird, isn't it? How something so opposite of sweet can make things taste even better?"
"How does it do that?" I asked.
"I don't know," Sophie answered. "It just kind of brings everything together in its own strange little way.”
