That is how it will be in my case, the chief cook and bottle washer will be eating yesterday's Christmas leftovers!

Happy Boxing Day ... No shopping for me. Time to relax and enjoy all our goodies.

Not sure what our dinner is because a couple from the church is bringing it over. I can't eat much but a nice salad is probably part of the menu!

No leftovers here either. I was too sick yesterday to deal with much. I sat on the couch and dozed off and on while gifts were opened. I have some ground beef in the fridge I need to cook up before we leave to visit DH's family in Ann Arbor so will do something with that. Not sure what at this point. Something easy for sure. Still feeling puny with this cold.

Gee, is anyone feeling good today? I took today's pills, so I should be feeling better than I do.

My daughter is sending me a plate of leftovers that I didn't take home last night. Good, I can just heat it up in the micro. No dirty pans to clean. Now to find some kid so I can "box" his ears.
