I made a Swedish tea ring for breakfast and we had soft scrambled eggs, juice and coffee with that.

Tonight's meal will be chicken on the merry-go-round, otherwise known as chicken on the rotisserie. The chicken is stuffed under the skin with butter, slivers of garlic and fresh rosemary. We'll have sliced roasted potatoes with Swiss and Parmesan cheeses, buttered baby peas and iced tea. Probably Christmas sweets from our stockings for dessert.

We've prepped as much as we can for the predicted blizzard that's supposed to hit during the night, so we'd better enjoy a hearty meal now. There's every possibility we'll lose power. The winds are blowing at 20-30 mph right now. They're expected to gust at higher speeds. After the snow hits, the temps are supposed to take a dive.

I am sure we'll have plenty of leftovers so we will be fine for meals if the power goes out. No matter, really, because our cooktop is gas.

We had lunch with TB's parents - his brother couldn't make it. They loved the Monte Cristo's and cauliflower soup and I served a green salad with shredded brussel sprouts. I am not baking because I can't eat it so I bought slices of festive looking red velvet cake from my favourite bakery. TB and I had yogurt and blueberries! Oh, and I had a turkey salad.

For dinner I think I will just have a small bowl of soup as I am still full.

I decided to grill the pork chops and season with curry (hence the yellow hue). I also made some egg noodles tossed with butter and basil and had a piece of venison sausage. Not traditional, but then neither am I.

We are just about to sit down to our Prime Rib, garlic mashed, Harvard beets, salad and rolls/buns. Butter tarts and cranberry fudge for dessert! Yum!

I did the Harvard beets in memory of my grandmother whom I remember making them for holiday meals. They were so good I couldn't stop eating them. I ate more of them than the yummy prime rib!
