Outside? I've never seen that around here and PA is between VA and MA

It's good to be home. My relatives with the exception of my sister are all lovely people. We got to spend time with some of them and spent the next day at Costco and a movie. It was a sock purchase day at Costco. We showed remarkable restraint, and brought home a lot of socks.

Beagle is very thankful to be back sleeping in her sunbeam. She's exhausted after bullying the heck out of her 75 pound canine cousin and being tortured by BIL's overweight Siamese cat.

Today has been a day of baking. Chocolate cupcakes filled with homemade caramel with marshmallow meringue frosting, and a sour cream apple pie is baking.

I'm enjoying the aroma of turkey stock simmering on the stove, about to put a loaf of bread into the oven. DH cut down part of our overgrown bay tree and a friend came by to get some of the stems for holiday decorating. Time to start thinking about dinner.

I'm starting to think about dinner, too. As in do I want any.
I had a huge Canadian bacon sub for lunch... after finishing off the turkey sausage (I'm going to have to buy that more often) and I am really not too sure what my plans will be tonight in the supper department. The Coor's light is tasting pretty good though.

(I'm thinking a quick drive to Calgary is out of the question)

Oh

I washed all our new Costco socks. I'll gift a few coworkers with The World's Softest Socks along with some Lindor Truffles for Christmas. We all seem to gift each other with socks every year.

DH, Beagle and I just got back from a nice walk, temp was 49°F.

I'm glad to read that you had a good time

Did you check for the cotton panties at Costco?

I made Danish Red Cabbage - Rødkål (Roedkaal). I used the new food processor to slice the cabbage. Wow! That was quick. But, bits of cabbage got into every nook and cranny of the lid, the bowl and the slicing blade. It was still quick, even counting clean up time. It did leave more pieces big than I would have liked. I didn't worry too much about the ones that weren't huge, since this batch will be just for me and Stirling. If I am making it for guests, I will probably slice the cabbage using the mandolin. It will take a little bit longer, but there won't be as many big pieces and they will be easier to spot, so I can slice them by hand.
