If it were only one day of cooking! It will be two solid days of baking, then two days of cooking, including Christmas Day. And I have to fit in a trip to Costco and a grocery store on Monday. By the time the kids go home on Friday I will be exhausted, but happy. My kids are all here, it probably won't always be like this, so I am enjoying it to the utmost. It's worth every minute of work to make each Christmas that I have them all, the best ever.

I had not heard that there would be a storm, but glad to hear we will miss it. Only problem is we were going to make a fire as they have a fire pit, and then have s'mores for dessert for the grands. That can always be moved to the gas stove. Hope you all have a stress free holiday,but I know you will spend a day of cooking Nell. I continue to feel better.

Sophie, I'm glad you are leaving on Monday. There is supposed to be a storm Christmas Eve, all rain on the east coast, but even one drop slows traffic. Which will be heavy the day before Christmas as it is.

Sophie, if it's bronchitis you'll feel better in about 24 hours after starting antibiotics. My sister ends up with bronchitis whenever she gets a cold, and has finally figured out to call the doc right away instead of waiting to see if it will get worse. It always does.

I made Green Gumbo, a pork, spinach, bell pepper and cabbage soup, over brown rice.

They started me on antibiotics so I'm hoping that will help. If not I need to crawl away because I won't make it through the holidays. Tonight beef stew over mashed potatoes.

Last night I was going to make a soup called Green Gumbo with pork tenderloin. I got the twinpak at Costco on Thursday. I pulled it out of the fridge, and it was leaking so I couldn't use it. I had to clean the fridge, and I'll have to take it back to Costco tomorrow, something else to do at this busy time of year. We ended up having sandwiches.

It is still pretty grey, but boats and planes back in services. Dinner tonight will probably be chili and spinach salad. Nell the storm was not nice, but never lost power, and now it's leaving. Miss G I am totally addicted to Downton Abbey. Sorry to hear season 4 is not as strong as the others.

Sophie, I've been watching the radar of the storm going up the coast. My sister lives near Atlantic City and it's been awful there, you must be miserable on the island.

Beef stir fry tonight. I went through my freezer and want to eat up the last 6 months of frozen food before Christmas.

You are correct. If my husband doesn't doesn't know he is eating an ingredient, 95% of the time he likes it. I just have to hide the fresh vegetables. I was home sick today. I reheated some white fish from Friday night. We are in the midst of a nor'easter. Yet again no boats or planes this afternoon or tomorrow. My husband said his trip back was the worst he had experienced ever which is saying a lot.

I can relate Nell. I prefer vegetarian chili, but my husband is not a fan. Lately I've been adding some soy crumbles and he hasn't figured it's not ground beef.

I'll be doing some kind of veggie plate tonight. Potatoes, green beans, cauliflower and green beans. Clean out my larder before going to the stores tomorrow.
