It is surgery Kayelle, there will be some swelling and irritation. It's only natural. I have great faith in your eye surgeon.

Personally, I am anxious for my cataracts to ripen so I can have the surgery. I'll be ditching the glasses.

Every year since about 1987, we've joined together with some friends on the Canadian side of the river and made the following, egg rolls with pineapple sweet and sour sauce, Scallops saute'd in garlic and butter, tempura chicken, and shrimp scampi, with a side of home made chicken liver pate'. One year we would make this at their house, the next year, at our house. This year, as our friends are about ten years our elders, they weren't up to making the big meal, especially since we are both empty nesters. They had planned on going out to dinner. Two things prevented us from joining them, first, I am on call this week, and 2nd, I've got the flu that's been running rampant in our town. We had Dominoes pizza for our New Years dinner, with a diet coke for me, and a Sprite for DW. I slept from about midnight last night, until 5 pm. today. I feel somewhat better, but not out of the woods yet.

To say it more succinctly, I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. And I
have to go to work tomorrow . I just hope I'm feeling stronger tomorrow. Supper tonight was lef-over pizza from last night.

We had friends here and everyone combined cooking skills to make three kinds of fondue!

Kayelle, hope your surgery results end up all you hoped for.

Chief, I hope you're done with the flu by the time I type this.

***********************

We rolled into our garage around 3:00 AM New Year's Eve, fresh from a week-plus back home with our kids. A week in OH was my best Christmas gift. Like Andy, we had a veritable banquet of munchies. Ring bologna, smokies, three types of cheeses from OH, olives and pickles. Crab-stuffed mushrooms and shrimp Shu-Mai. Balanced all of that with a crudites platter and hummus. Red and white wines. Brownie bites for dessert. Forgot about the shrimp until I was putting away the leftovers, so we went ahead and ate them late. Threw together some homemade cocktail sauce that was really good. Now if I could just think of how I made it...

DH smoked our first chicken with the smoker I got him for Christmas and it turned out beautifully. We used applewood chips. We also had dressing and sautéed green beans with it.

I was lying down when he finished it and he didn't take any pictures! Oh well, next time.

Whoops, that was supposed to be last night's dinner, not NYE. Can't remember what we had. Wasn't feeling well.

Nope, not over the flu quite yet. I am happy that you were able to enjoy such a fine spread of goodies. I've had my share of such New Years meals. A humble night at home with DW was a quiet and good thing. Your banquet of goodies sounds spectacular. Nice job.
