Tonight we're having a few friends over for an early Christmas gathering before we head out to Ohio for the holidays with family. We're having meat lasagna with a Crognolo Chianti that I was lucky to find.

I am having my hair done today and afterwards I have to go to staples. I will probably stop off at Gelsons and get something to go - they have the best take out food department in the whole San Fernando Valley.

Chicken enchiladas, courtesy of Mr. Stouffer. Too much other stuff going on to worry about anything elaborate.

Since its warmed up to less than bloody freezing we will be BBQing burgers tonight. I just hope that Ken can drag the BBQ out of the garage and thru the snow far enough...

I just made crab cakes, no sides.
Daughter didn't stay for dinner so I really didn't feel like doing a veggie and or starch just for me.

Something called a California Casserole from my very old La Leche's "Mother's in the Kitchen." I know that I made the dish many years ago because in my handwriting are the words "very hearty." It's the essence of simplicity, which makes it a good choice tonight: basically very lean ground beef, onion, green peppers, cheese, tomatoes, tomato paste, a little tomato juice, uncooked elbow macaroni, and olives just mixed up raw and cooked in a casserole for two hours. We shall see how it survived the decades since I made it last!

SuzyQ3, that sounds really good...maybe I will make it soon and add a little home-made chili powder...and maybe some garlic. We had chicken tostadas using leftover chicken and some sliced papaya. Spent the day making many many kinds of cookies, so didn't feel much like cooking something elaborate. Hard to find some of the ingredients here in Mexico, but I was lucky to find some molasses for soft molasses cookies and some chocolate chips. Woo-hoo! Feliz Navidad to all of you - thanks for making me feel welcome. Karen
