I have just sat down for the first time since 5:30 this morning. I made 4 loaves of Italian bread and put the old fashioned ham in the electric roaster, then I cooked 1-1/2# of old fashioned bacon coated with pepper and flour, made a batch of pancake batter and got the latkes ready for our brunch with the kids. Eldest daughter got engaged this morning (her fiance asked me for her hand last night...ain't that too cute?
) so she's beaming today as is DW. He's 40 and she's 29, but he still felt the need to ask for my blessing, then we ate our brunch and left no prisoners on the table, only dirty dishes. Cleaned up that mess then we opened our presents and it was back to the kitchen. Cut and bagged all 4 loaves of bread, and cut up the 18# ham and got it in the oven on low to stay warm. We have about an hour until the rest of the family gets here for the next phase of the food fest and wrapping paper, so I need to get a shower and shave so I look presentable for the family pictures.
I hope everyone else is having a joyous and peaceful day.
