December 12, 2011


Somehow it is hard to believe we are two weeks from Christmas.  Somehow, I haven’t caught the spirit.  A combination of warm weather and Thanksgiving fatigue, I guess.  So it’s hard to grab on to the Ho Ho mojo for the Christmas cards and stuff. But I guess I’ll get there….I am starting to think about the Christmas and New Year’s menus however.  Gotta have a prime rib in there.  Maybe a duck. Leg of lamb? Roast Goose? Crab???

Somehow, it’s gotta be rich and it always ends up expensive.  But it is all part of the holidays themselves and their celebration.  Southern fried chicken – as good as it is – won’t do!

And then we have the rest of the year (and the gym) to work it all off.  And to think of the fact that as a much younger (and thinner woman) I could eat whatever I wanted and never gain weight….it ain’t fair….
