Our friend Barb got here from Ohio - a day and a half drive through pouring rain and finally the last half day was sunshine....thank goodness. We went over to greet them (Barb and her daughter who drove down with her) and then went out to eat at one of the country clubs. Lyn and I shared a lettuce wrap and pork egg roll appetizer.

Oh Beth. That surely was nice.
That later sunshine was a blessing.
Enjoy the friendship, and God bless you all!

We had what we call a whoops! Where did it go? Meal.
Tina made us fried mushrooms peppers, and cheese and eggs frittata. With just light toast, it hit the spot.

Just boiled cubed taters. Tina wants potato salad to eat her ham with. She can't eat ham without potato salad.

DD just called and threw this one in the basket. "Ma, did you get the Salmon???".... Tina jumped into the mommy car, and picked it up. Gotta get while the gettins good.

DD is working till 9 tonight. Plus she's up in Newton with fewer store choices. Anyway.... I will finish the potato salad, and then chop the onions and celery and carrots for the stuffing. OH!.... BTW...We are cooking a turkey breast only. I am so happy for that.

Christmas dinner:

glazed ham with pineapple slices and cherries.
turkey breast
kielbasa
lasagna
candied ( must be ) sweet potatoes
stuffing
gravy
potato salad.....
cranberry sauce ( canned Ocean Spray )
mashed potatoes
broccoli
asparagus
corn
beans

Monday I asked Charlie if he and Cassie were going to be home for Christmas and he said yes so yesterday afternoon I went to the store and got stuff for dinner . I planned a rib roast,broccoli salad, baked potatoes, popovers and the roast. That evening my nephew called my son and said he wanted the whole family to come to his house. He is having smoked turkey, and crabs. He's smoking the turkey. I will take the roast and add it to the meal.

Pot Luck - especially nice when it's holiday time. Nice, Norm, sounds like a great variety and a little something different for everyone.

True, Barb, but they don't want the muss and the fuss. It would take up their cuddle-up on the couch in front of the TV Time. hahahahaha

Beth....it's really the theys and the thems that must have all that. If it were me, it would be the ham, kielbasa, and macaroni's and sausage. E N O U G H Already.

bugster... no calamari. There wasn't any good fresh at the supermarket. Tina got clams / muscles / scallops / and shrimps. That is all for Christmas Eve.
I will make a big pot of seafood gumbo. Then steamers along with peel and eat shrimps.

DD has to have salmon.

I'm playing around with the Spaghetti Corn casserole dish today. I figure I'll change around the recipe a bit and have it as a side with some chicken fingers tonight.

One cook down, and only one cook to go!

Whaaaaaat!!!!!!!!

Miss Tina was vacuuming the steps (A job I told her I would do later ) and she thought there was a step to knell on, but she slipped off and whacked just below her knee on the shin. All puffed and swolled, and black and blue already!
I have to vacuum again, because it's kinda hard to vacuum with a fully packed vacuum bag.
Tina said,"OMG, again it's full?" ... I said, two things. "Ya got a lot of dirt in the house, and secondly,"The vacuum is really working great!" Panasonic Canister / Kenmore clone.

It's just one I'm playing around with to tweek the recipe to take for a pot luck sometime. It's broken spaghetti, canned corn, canned creamed corn, butter, onion & mozzarella cheese....buttered panko to sprinkle at the end. It's one of those "non-descript" recipes that is something most people will eat...I mean, what's not to like with spaghetti & corn held together with a bit of cheese?

Thanks Beth. She took two aspirin, and has her electric blanket on to help circulation.
 
She HAD  to clean, because of wrapping and moving stuff around created a lot of lint etc. on her NEW DARK GREEN CARPETTING
haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
 
Barb...thanks. I guess I am now "Cinder Fella!"

Here's my casserole of Spaghetti Corn....it tastes kind of like Rice-a-Roni with corn. It would definitely be one of those dishes you could take, to be safe, to a pot luck when you don't think spicy would go over and you aren't sure if there are any vegetarians. I mean, it's just spaghetti & corn ~ the mozzarella isn't even tasted but is more of what holds it together.



I made pecan/panko crusted chicken fingers (yes, Jimmy, WELL done) and some red beets. I had some sweet chili sauce to dip my chicken into.
