One more day in the kitchen..I am getting real tired of being in there. Yesterday I played sous chef for Far Guy whilst he made pans of “Cinnamon” Caramel Rolls. I cooked a huge pork roast so that it was well done and fell apart. Today I am on a schedule..things have to be done at a certain time…so that we can eat at a certain time.
I don’t like schedules, I don’t like cooking…the kitchen is my least favorite spot in the house..yet I spend a huge amount of my time there recently.
I rebelled when it came to dessert. The girls will bring cookies. I should have made an apple pie..instead I decided that Mudballs would be a perfect dessert. Oreos will be crushed and scoops of vanilla ice cream will be rolled in the Oreo mixture, I will put the balls into red plastic glasses and refreeze them..then garnish with Raspberries and chocolate syrup..and enjoy. Sound yummy to you..I thought so!
The packages are all wrapped. The house is reasonably dust free. Our two stockings are hung by the fireplace..nine more will join ours. Laughter will fill the house again. The dogs will bark and run around..and we will eat, then we will eat again Christmas morning..after that it is everyone for themselves…by that time Grandma will be exhausted. I might need a long winters nap.
The puzzle is ready upstairs.. it is on the same card table as it was years ago at Far Guys home. We will play games..perhaps spoons..the Grands love that game.
The days have been dreary.. we went for a ride yesterday looking for turkeys. We found a few. Several are still visiting our bird feeders when Chance is in the house.
We will be having a white Christmas. ( As if there was any doubt) It will be a cool one too..days time highs are forecast to be only a few degrees above zero and night time lows below zero.. 5 to –5 F or –15 to –20 C.
Merry Christmas Eve Day:)
