Mark is having chicken pot pie made from last night's leftovers. I'm not sure what I'm having yet.

It is cold and snowy here so I borrowed a bone from the neighbors dog and made some ham soup with butter beans.

I need to get the bone back before he wakes up!

I have a 3.3 lb turkey breast that will be seasoned with whole sage leaves and butter under the skin, s/p on the skin and into the oven to roast. Will be served with some roasted garnet yams and veg tbd. Perhaps a simple saute of bell pepper, corn and carrot. I'll heat up some leftover gravy to serve with the yams and turkey.

My younger daughter is coming this morning so we can make cheese turnovers like my mom used to make. That'll be our dinner as well with some egg and lemon soup.

I just browned a nice big bone-in piece of pork and put it in the crock-pot with chopped onions, garlic and sliced fresh mushrooms, along with some herbs. Have some russet potatoes I'll do something with and will cook up some creamed spinach for another side. Christmas cookies, of course, for dessert.

Andy - Have fun in the kitchen with your daughter. There's nothing better.

It's cold today, but at least the sun is out.

I have a few returns this morning and then to Trader Joe's for a few things. My kids love TJ's mandarin chicken, so that served over jasmine rice and some veggies will be our dinner tonight.

Enjoy the day
