Have a wonderful day with your Family Laura! I too just love that picture of you guys with Santa! :) Merry Christmas Joce! Is it today you have family over to eat up all those appetizers you've been getting? Have a lovely time. Merry Christmas Marie! Was your Dad all tickled with his Peanut Brittle delivery? Are your cats having a blast with wrapping paper? Can't wait to hear how your brined turkey turns out Laurie. Michael Smith is a well know Canadian Chef. He's a really, really tall man. Love his voice! Don't know if you get his shows in the States? Good to see you in here last night Michelle. Merry Christmas. Maybe share a bit of your snow today with Marie if you get a chance. :) Your French toast with eggnog custard sounds amazing Tina. Hope you have a great day. Hugs to all. We've opened all our presents. There are a lot of books and bottles of wine in our living room! :) Talked to my Mom already and Jim will be calling his siblings as the day goes on. Bright and sunshiny here in Ottawa. I gave the crows some leftover puff pastry squares from the Almost Escargot recipe last night and they thought that was a great Christmas treat. :)
Janet, The kids are going out to Angie' grandparent's farm and they are taking a thirty pound turkey and a bunch of things out there. They should have a great time as all their cousins will be there. They will show up here tomorrow afternoon for appy's and things. So I am just relaxing a bit today. At the moment I am baking up a lb of bacon (which we don't eat very often) so I can have it ready to pop off a few slices from the freezer whenever I need it. Going to use some in our brunch today though.
Merry Christmas Tina! Pleased to hear you'll get a chance for a nap. Your goodies sound wondrous! A 30 lb. Turkey!!!! Holy Smokes Joce. That's a bigun' :) Enjoy your Brunch. I'm doing a small Butterball Turkey for Jim and I for this evening and a Tofurkey for Benj. Mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing and Panko Crusted Asparagus Spears Jim's already having a snooze in front of the fire. :)
Just a quick pop in to wish you a wonderful holiday! We are having dinner at our friends' home. I'm making cherry crisp and Mean Green Bean Casserole. I'm also going to bring over some eggnog. Back later to chat and tell you about our family gathering yesterday :)
Pass me some of that turkey Laurie! I put mine in at 6. It's not big. Expected to eat at 8. Everything else is all done but not the turkey. Argh! Trying to appear calm to other family members. Can hang on for about another 15 min. before true panic sets in. :) Ipad's are super cool. Lucky you. Am also getting hungry. :)
