We'll make it 12 days --- in honor of the Twelve Days of Christmas!
Not very neat???
I resent that. My wrapping looks just like that.
(I used a lot of gift bags this year)
sounds alittle like my fruit salad...except that I put in mandarin oranges and marchino (sp) cherries and some chopped walnuts, then I put a T spoon or so of mayo folded into the whipped cream. It doesn't last long!
I read Kay's post too. She is optimistic and looking forward to going home for Christmas. I feel so badly for her and sad too. I know you feel the same way.
LOL--- I'll bet you're an expert wrapper --- I do ribbons best, thanks to a 99 cent gadget, but gift bags are my favorite. :)
You're welcome (((goodnesswins))) --- and me too regarding the blurry screen.
You've got to be kidding?!
If only we lived closer, we could forget cooking on Christmas Day and go to GEM's.
I can never work those things. I use a lot of gift bags and bottle bags myself.
Also stick on bows are find are the best LOL
The stick on bows never stay stuck for me. I find myself taping them around the edge, and that's why I bought that gadget at the Ninety Nine Cent store. Fortunately, it was a gadget I understood how to use. So many aren't and I toss them into the trash.
You're welcome. Just making sure you're around. Seattle on Sunday. Lousy weather likely.
Your sister! WOW! She is a true hero.
It has to be a mistake by the media... I copied the text under each photo.
Welcome to FR and thanks for posting to us.
ilovew needs a fan for that toaster...lol. One of my all time favorite pics.
It's no kidding. I'll make much of it on the 24th when I have no company, such as the stuffing, deviled eggs, fruit salad (I'm not making the pies, they're bought), and deviled ham. I can peel the potatoes, make the sour cream appetizer dip, etc., on the day before, also the veggie / olives / pickles tray. That pretty much leaves the turkey, gravy, reheating and finishing the potatoes, and the really quick and easy asparagus for the 25th.
There ya go. We'd have a grand time.
I'll say we would! Plus, we'd eat grandly too.
My friend, for whom I designed this salad (smile) will eat almost anything but I can't get him to go for the mayo and walnuts (or walnut substitute) in this salad! He's allergic to walnuts so I can understand that part, but he won't even allow diced celery in the thing. I think I may have to, on some future occasion, make a small Waldorf salad for myself. To me, Waldorf salad is essential at Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is my compromise on that deal.
We don't have the sweets around in abundance on Christmas day so I guess that's why the big difference in the way I do the appetizers. Usually what happens is everyone has breakfast but gets kind of a late start, we open gifts in the early afternoon, and eat the appetizers (by this time of day I'm needing protein), and visit. The main course is cooking all the while, and after a couple hours, we eat dinner. The sweets come in pie / dessert form a few hours later.
*thud* My favorite toaster. Thanks, snugs :)
God bless your sister!!! Merry christmas to your family!!!
What our appetizers amount to is a late, light lunch: it has protein, vegetables, and starch.
Salmon mousse sounds wonderful, as does your whole meal (excepting those Brussels sprouts, which my taste buds never have come to terms with). My mother thought very highly of them and served them often.
Very appropriate. Thank you!!!!!!
You're very welcome, kitkat. Probably a tad too late for this Christmas, but maybe you can find something for next year.
Your tradition sounds very similar to a lot of people in Britain. Mine though especially in recent years is not as healthy I will probably have mainly sweets (candies) or nibbles such as crackers and nuts for breakfast then cook dinner.
Christmas is a grazing time for me LOL
Am forcing myself to have breakfast today - an American quick one as it is late muffins seem OK to have mid morning not so sure at 8.00am but nearly 11.00 that is OK.
Then the documentation has arrived that should have been at work yesterday so will do covering letter and get in the post. Long story will elaborate at another time via email.
I suppose our dinner will be late lunch but then we will have tea which will be cold meat and pickles (onions, gerkin (dill) beetroot etc maybe some mashed potato.)
What you said. It's a stunning, arresting photo of the two of them.
Oh my thank you! How in the world? It's been a long time since I've posted on this thread. Thank you for the wishes.
It's a keeper for sure. You just know that they are pleased with it too.
Long time, no see and Happy Birthday!!!!
((((Wowza each of these pics have something very touching and sweet about them!
TY Ony, for posting Friday's Dose for us& the pretty Christmas greeting post too!))))
Congrats on getting Friday's Toaster.
Have a wonderful Christmas, Dolly and family (and pets)...
Thanks for letting me "barrow" that wonderful pic.
Hey thanks! Merry Christmas to you!
It's so good a photo, I'm sure in the course of normal marital disagreement, one of them has the prescience to turn the photo to the wall, until a deal is reached. :)
There's good ones on today's Dose too.
Like I said... it was pinged to ya to save as You wish...That's what it was meant for.
Laura's gown is dazzling. I'm thinking of doing a red Christmas Ball tree for my entryway, too.
I love that Christmas ball/ornament tree. If you do one, please let me know how it turns out.
I'll be at Walmarts, right after Christmas looking for red balls, no doubts. And as soon as summer is in full flush, nice, on sale, pots to root the cages in.
Contributions/corrections to this idea? Love to hear 'em.
You're amazing! You already have it engineered! Sounds like a truly workable plan to me. Alia, I mean it... I want to hear from you about it.
What Gadget? I have to tape my "stick-on" bows too.
