Any early Christmas morning cooks still at it?

Well, bless your good food and yourselves too. Remember to save enough energy to have a Merry Christmas! I pray that everyone made it home safely. I'm told by the ER department from our local hospital that the stomach flu is rampant in our area---now isn't that just lousy timing?

Hi Ana,

Yeah, I'm just about to get started. Actually, I guess you could say I 'started' late last night after we got home from Christmas Eve at my folks. I made the mashed potatoes and put the turkey in the brining solution. Does that count? All the kids are home so it would be a great day Christmas or not. We got about 5" of snow yesterday so it looks 'Christmasy' for the day. Kids came from Springfield where they had a lot more snow. The usual 4hr. trip took 8hrs. this time. Was able to check on their progress/safety periodically via cell phone. Not ALL technology is bad ;^) You and everyone on the forum have a very warm and merry Christmas!

As I sit on my rear end reading your post, my better half is hard at work making our traditional homemade waffle breakfast with all the trimmings. As soon as the waffle batter gets to rising, she'll be working on her typically wonderful Christmas dinner. I for one, am truly blessed.

"Help her, you lazy lout" some of you might say...I've learned over the years the best approach is to stay out of her way, but close enough to come quickly when called. Both the kids are home, and we're getting snowed in. A great holiday!

Hope everyone has at least a good a good Christmas as mine is shaping into!

Tom A
