A Fine Day Out & In!
What elsaf said! :-)

Elsa did a fab job on the rib roast, Yorkshire pudding, taters, carrots, soup & salad! If you're lucky, maybe she'll cook for you someday!

judiang told me that I had to save some snow for her to shovel, and today, after our day out shopping, she shoveled a path to my trash (tomorrow morning is trash pickup) and then went out and shoveled a path in the sidewalk. At least, from my place to the folks' place. :-) No more trudging through the street! Elsa wants to know when Judi's ready to move to Michigan. Finding someone who WANTS to shovel snow is a rarity.

Tomorrow, Elsa heads back north (wah!) but Amy & Rachel will be coming (yay!) And tomorrow night is the gathering at the Short's. We've had our gathering with the Andersons, and that was most pleasant. And we'll get to see some of them again on New Year's Day, probably. Tomorrow, however, Judi gets to experience the Short Family Christmas (extended). I think she'll have a ball. Granny's gonna love her since Judi's already said she's ready to clean the kitchen when we're done eating. :-)

Well, the CD that was playing on my computer is done, so now I can play around with City of Heroes - woot!

Current Mood: loved loved

You made creme brulee? :9 How do you do the tops? My brother once thought of buying a little kitchen blowtorch for that.

I used a kitchen blowtorch for that. (A couple of years ago, Judi got me ramikins and a creme brulee mix and Elsa got me a torch & butane, because my most favorite dessert of all time is creme brulee.) I did a fairly good job tonight (though folks thought I could put more sugar on 'em before burning).

There is another way (nontorch) to do it and that's to use your broiler in your oven. I prefer the torch cuz it's COOL! (Or rather, HOT!)

(the good mood endures...When I start quoting the Happiness Patrol in joy, I have to worry...)

My sister (who arrives today - woot!) called me yesterday and I said "Merry Christmas!" She laughed and said "Your feet haven't touched the ground all week, have they?" I had to admit that no, they haven't. And that it saves wear & tear on my precious Christmas socks. :-)
