My grandson had to go back to his house today, we were going to see in the new year together. We will have to celebrate the next time he gets to come.

Just got the rice cooker going with white rice for my Ettouffé tonight. Found a nice chuck roast...! Have my smoked ham shanks stewing for stock for tomorrow. Everything smells so good.

I just made my chili for dinner and put it in the small crock-pot to keep warm. I don't know what time Mark is going to want to eat. This way, it's ready.
