I'm refusing to cook tonight. We had a late lunch of chicken & dumplin's, ham, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, pinto beans, cole slaw, & yeast rolls at my in-laws today & I'm stuffed!! Hubby had to work today so I brought him some food home for his supper tonight.

Lou and I spent the day decorating the outside of the house with christmas lights and wreaths. With the exception of the tree that is always lit and always with mardi gras colours, the rest of the front yard was done with blues and greens and a few white light snowflakes hanging in the cherry tree.

I'm with PABaker...I don't like to eat the leftovers the very next day, with the exception of a turkey or antipasto sandwich for lunch.

I made bolognese sauce to serve with ziti. I'm planning to make a salad with boston lettuce, roasted pancetta and apple dices, and shaved sharp provolone.

Right now, we're enjoying cocktails of Knob Creek bourbon. I imagine we'll have a chianti with dinner. I'm up for more pumpkin pie for dessert. Speaking of the pumpkin pie, I tried something different with it, this year. Into my regular method, I added the grated zest of a lemon and an orange. Instead of the bourbon I usually add, I added triple sec. The faint taste of citrus in the pie is truly magnificent. The flavours compliment each other perfectly.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Went out to eat twice...

Lunch was Mexican, and Dinner was Japanese.
