So, I've made the these things, all home-made;
Potato Bread rolls for sandwiches
Marinara Sauce with my special meatballs for meatball subs
96 Toll-House Cookies
Fudge
Tea Ring
Sliced two pounds of summer sausage, deli thin
2 lbs. ham, deli thin
1 lb. Muenster Cheese, deli thin
1/2 lb. Smoked Goudam Cheese, deli thin
Made home-made pastrami, and sliced it, yes, you guessed it, deli thin

After all that, supper tonight was 2 cans VanCamp's Pork & Beans, doctored with bacon, onion, and brown sugar, 12 oz. of fried bacon, and 6 hot dogs (our son was home and so we made extra.

Now, I just have to bag the marinara and meatballs and I can go to bed.

I wish all of you an incredible Christmas, and though some do and some don't, may the Holy Ghost fill your home.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Don't know--been invited to a friend's mom's for dinner. I'm bringing chocolate truffles. I suspect turkey is on the menu.

Harry--I guess I should cancel my plans to move in with you now that you've hooked up with s/one on that side of the pond. Darn.

I have a small rib roast that I might just cut into two steaks. That way, we'd get more caramelization We'll also have Hasselback potatoes, green beans with balsamic-bacon vinaigrette and yeast rolls. Maybe baked apples for dessert.

Punkin pies just came out of the oven...Rolls are rising....A good ol' Smithfield ham is in the oven. Mrs Hoot is making deviled eggs...mashed taters....green beans and corn...
got liquid apple pie, bourbon, hard cider, beer (various kinds), and iced tea to drink.
Everything will come together around 2:30 or so.
Casa de Hoot is smelling mighty good.

Oops....forgot about the sliced summer sausage and cheese platter. The pepper jack cheese has got a mighty sharp bite. You know why they call it gouda cheese?
'Cause it's "gouda" than the others...('cept for the extra sharp cheddar and muenster.)
