Xmas Eve Report

The storm veered more towards the Grand Canyon, and all we're getting is a few showers, plus it warmed up. No snow for me. There is snow on the mesas and mountains around us, so that at least is pretty to see.

We decided to risk putting up a tree inside for the first time since we got the Bengal kitties, as they're teenagers now, and a little less wild, and they're being angels! Though I'm inclined to think they're lulling us into a false sense of security :D

Food for tonight is partway done. The mince pies I made yesterday were a huge hit, so am going to make some more since the dozen I made are nearly gone. Nin wants me to make pumpkin cinnamon rolls for tomorrow morning, so need to find the recipe. At least that'll get me up early enough to get the turkey in at a fairly early hour. I'm doing the one I did last year in BBQ, Michael Symon's Cider Lager turkey. It's the first time that a turkey that was not done in our usual received full approval for a redo.

Looking forward to the guessing post for hlh_shortcuts - it's always amusing to see what story people think I wrote. But there still two days of posting to go, so I'll be patient!
