The turkey is in the brine and there is a little sugar pumpkin boiling on the stove. I have some new recipes to try for tomorrow, including a pecan-blue-cheese change up for sweet potatoes and prosciutto with Brussels sprouts.
Heard from sillymagpie, so she lives, if congested and sleepy. Whew.
Someone posted a thank you for the goodies on my comments a few posts back, but didn't log in so it was anonymous and I don't know who to say "Merry Christmas and you're welcome!" to, and also to say I KNOW where the Cheech & Chong Christmas song (Santa Claus & His Old Lady) comes from originally (the Dr. Demento CD), but that's not where =I= got it... I think I may have downloaded it some years ago, pre-iTunes. In any case, I don't have it anymore.
Speaking of Christmas songs I do own now, I got the Neil Diamond Christmas album, figuring if I liked one Jew singing Christmas carols (Barry Manilow), I could try another; it's okay, as such things go, but includes the Adam Sandler Hanukkah song (which is the only funny thing Sandler ever did, IMHO), which is HILARIOUS sung by Neil Diamond.
I'm still trying to figure out why I got on board the Neil Gaiman wagon so late. The guy writes what I think, which is both deeply annoying and desperately attractive. He could have been my imaginary celebrity boyfriend if I'd found him before he got married.
The stores were busy today. Apparently we're not the only ones who forgot some things.
