Happy Xmas

Christmas this year was actually not as stressful as it usually is for me. How's that for a backhanded compliment? Highlights:

Steve (rootbeer1)'s mom Billie Sue and her longtime companion friend Carol visited earlier in the month, and did all the decorations.

Went to see The Kinsey Sicks with Dave and Cal (shprdbear). Oy Vey in a Manger!

Spent some time with John (keanubear) and Greg.

Had Phil (foodpoisoningsf) over for brunch. Panetone french toast, bacon, fruit salad.

Had Dave (design_bear), Dave & Cal, and Victor & Mel over for Xmas dinner. Prime rib, Smithfield ham, roasted potatoes, Brussels sprouts, cottage cheese/pineapple salad, popovers, puddings and pies.

I got Monopoly...for girls!!!

Also a blue Princess phone for the Marcia Brady Guest Room™, a new digital camera, a big box of National Geographic maps, a bacon cookbook, and other delightful gifties.

Cooked onions in butter, added flour to make a roux, added milk to make a bechamel, added leftover potatoes and ham--scalloped potatoes last night for supper.

Had coffee today with Joe (joebehrsandiego), Pete (pulsecub), and Joshua (enhydrasf).

Back to work!!!
