Christmas Cookies

Monday, December 06, 2010


(Make at your own risk)
Here is how to make my favorite Christmas Cookies.........and you know what kind of a cook I am but I just love making these!!!

Ingredients:
1 cup of water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup of brown sugar
lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 cup nuts
2 cups of dried fruit
1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila

Directions:
Sample the Cuervo to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.
Turn on the electric mixer...Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar...Beat again.
At this point it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still OK, try another cup ... just in case.
Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit off floor...
Mix on the turner. If the ! ! ! fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.
Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Check the Jose Cuervo.
Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.
Greash the oven.
Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over.
Don't forget to beat off the turner.
Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

CHERRY MISTMAS

    I suspect we'd find the same or similar practices in all the meat industries. Have you ever seen a cattle feedlot? It wouldn't be hard for me to be a vegetarian!

    Since we have already had Thanksgiving in Oct. I did read this and it is disgusting.
Man today has little respect for humans or animals.
It's all about greed.
Even though it's ugly, thanks for sharing.

    Chinese is different.
Our senior's group do Chinese for their Christmas luncheon because they feel we get turkey'd out during the season.
For our American friends, that would be at least 2 turkey feasts within 4 weeks. At least we have 8 weeks between our 2 feasts.
Watch the salt (sodium) though in the Chinese food.
Have a blessed day.
Happy Thanksgiving

    I won't be making any stuffing either to go with the turkey. Six people don't need mashed potatoes, yams AND stuffing. That to me is gluttony. But I prefer our menu to yours. Hope you enjoy it.

    There is not stuffing or anything else from the Thanksgiving feast I had because I left it all for others! Including my tray of vegetables.

12 Reasons to be Thankful you Burnt the Bird!

Monday, November 22, 2010

Salmonella won't be a concern.

Everyone will think your turkey is Cajun blackened.

Uninvited guests will think twice next year.

Your cheese broccoli lima bean casserole will gain newfound appreciation.

Pets won't bother to pester you for scraps.

No one will overeat.

The smoke alarm was due for a test.

Carving the bird will provide a good cardiovascular workout.

You'll get to the desserts even quicker.

After dinner, the guys can take the bird to the yard and play football.

The less turkey Uncle You-Know-Who eats, the less likely he will be to walk around with his pants unbuttoned.

You won't have to face three weeks of turkey sandwiches.

Turkey Survival

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

When I was a young turkey, new to the coop,
My big brother Mike took me out on the stoop,
Then he sat me down, and he spoke real slow,
And he told me there was something that I had to know;

His look and his tone I will always remember,
When he told me of the horrors of ..... Black November;
"Come about August, now listen to me,

Each day you'll be thick, where once you were thin,
And you'll grow a big rubbery thing under your chin.
"And then one morning, when you're warm in your bed,
In'll burst the farmer's wife, and hack off your head;

"Then she'll pluck out all your feathers so you're bald'n pink,
And scoop out all your insides and leave ya lyin' in the sink,
"And then comes the worst part" he said not bluffing,
"She'll spread your cheeks and pack your rear with stuffing".

Well, the rest of his words were too grim to repeat,
I sat on the stoop like a winged piece of meat,
And decided on the spot that to avoid being cooked,
I'd have to lay low and remain overlooked;

I began a new diet of nuts and granola,
High-roughage salads, juice and diet cola,
And as they ate pastries, chocolates and crepes,
I stayed in my room doing Jane Fonda tapes,

I maintained my weight of two pounds and a half,
And tried not to notice when the bigger birds laughed;
But 'twas I who was laughing, under my breath,
As they chomped and they chewed, ever closer to death;

And sure enough when Black November rolled around,
I was the last turkey left in the entire compound;
So now I'm a pet in the farmer's wife's lap;
I haven't a worry, so I eat and I nap,

She held me today, while sewing and humming,
And smiled at me and said "Christmas is coming........"
