Ok, here was the dinner tonight:

Christmas crackers to be super British; tomales (we ARE in NM)-- green and red (no, this has to do with chilis you non-Southwesterners ;-)); turkey; cranberries; and fried artichokes; Christmas cookies and candy.

 

I'm going off the white powder diet (sugar white flour) tomorrow. ;-)

BTW, for a cute little explanation of the red or green thang go to:

I read that red or green IS now the official state question. It is the only state with an official state question. Get yours next year.

My daughter is visiting from LA and son and his wife from Chitown. Her parents bought a place north of town to escape Michigan winters and plan to retire here eventually.

 

I worked Sun am until noon and came home and made clam chowder and warmed up some turkey-organic bean chili I had in the freezer. Also made choc chip cookies and a pumpkin pie. The kids ( they're all in their 30's) showed up about 4:00 pm and we had the soup and some homemade rolls and raspberry preserve along with some cheese stuffed celery and whole-spiced cranberries. Champagne also. Mmmmmmmm good !

 

Opened presents with the kids and then went over to my parents and did the same there. Daughter and I got to bed about 9:00 pm exhausted while son and his wife went to a casino and proceeded to support the local economy.

 

Today we met the new in-laws so my mom and dad could meet them for the first time, and we all plus the kids stuffed at a casino buffet. Mmmmmmm good! No supper tonight ! A really nice Christmas for all and I'm taking the weekdays off this week to spend time with my kids, which is a rare occasion for us all.

 

Peace and love to all.

 

flow.... :D
