I think it rained this morning but most of the day has been a cool, sunny day with little wind. DH, DS#2 and I walked on the river walk. We saw a bald eagle on a piling apparently enjoying something he found in the river.
I have extra cooking and meal plans when DS#2 is here. Our oldest son pretty much cooks for himself unless we're making something he can also eat. He will be able to have the pulled pork tonight but no bun or roll. Tomorrow he will help with the turkey and he always promptly makes broth from the carcas.
Ann, I'm sorry your tummy is causing troubles. I hope that passes soon. The peanutbutter cookies do sound good. I saw a recipe for them somewhere - was it here on Spark? It said the dough is sticky but not to add anything. I'm sure your daughter will enjoy them.
Judy, I used to enjoy Sunset but haven't seen it for years. Sometimes TOPS friends will bring paperbacks or magazines to share with whoever wants them and I got a nice Christmas one- think it was Christmas Cottage.
We like to drive around town to look at the Christmas lights. For several years now we've been taking turns reading a Christmas story of our choice. It's interesting to hear what the person whose turn it is to read comes up with. I'd like to go to the Candlelight Christmas service tonight if I don't "run out of gas". This is the time of year we enjoy having a lot of the Scandinavian goodies. I didn't bake at all this year. I'm still planning to make Healthy Exchanges Homemade Fruitcake for New Years- I think only Bruce and I like it. We have cardamon braid, knackebrod, smoked salmon, cheese, fatigman (poor man's cookie).
