Today is crunch time on my cake and it is only DH and I so probably just the leftover hamburger soup and the bannock bread #1 made last night.

honey baked ham
garlic mashed potatoes
baked sweet potatoes
fresh whole wheat bread

we received the honey baked ham for a Christmas present from the local lumber/hardware store. They give their important customers a 25 foot measuring tape and their top 10 customers in terms of sales; a honey baked ham. We have received the ham only once before. This is indicitive of how poorly the economy is doing in my area. Dh did no business with this store from Jan through May 2007. He started a small job in June and will finish in March 2008. The job is a 3 car garage with a full apartment on top. A very nice job, but small. And he ranked in the top 10 this year with no business with this company for half the year?? Yikes, sales have to be slow at the local lumber yard!

Scalloped potatoes and ham made with cheesy Alfredo sauce and cooked in the crock-pot. The house should start smelling good pretty soon.

Its Friday so its DH and I will be going out for dinner. This time kid free ;). He won tickets at work for a play "Goodbye Charlie" at a Theater. I can't remember the last one we went to its been to long but we truly enjoy going. This one looks like a really good one too. As for what we'll be eating....I'm not sure. I think I'll suggest Red Lobster as I'm craving me some shrimp.

Yum!! I love the pates & terrines in Montreal & Quebec City. We usually take the train up there from Brockville & celebrate our anniversary. I am jealous!

Tonight, we are trying out a new pizza place. We ordered chorizio, Italian sausage & mushrooms as well as a salad. I hope it's good. My husband thinks there "is no bad pizza"...we'll see!
