I'm taking it easy today. My back doesn't hurt as badly as yesterday.

I'm piddling around. I made the taco meat, chicken salad, egg salad. I prepped the green onions for the freezer, cut up and froze the hamburger chub. The only prep work left is to semi freeze the ground sausage and cut into chunks (1/3# each) and add them to the freezer.

I'm thinking up meal ideas with the goodies I've got now. I'm working on a recipe where I can use sweet potatoes in a casserole with ham.

Dinner tonight will be tacos in crispy shells.

It's a nice, productive day, just taking it easy and piddling around.

A little ham some onion and a leftover baked sweet potato fried together make a great hash! A little cinnamon, allspice or nutmeg gives it a nice holiday feel.

Let us know what you come up with!

For me it would be a little cinnamon and a little nutmeg.

Just finished up with my second supper (I'm eating a little bit here, a tiny bit here as I do odd jobs) and listening to the ballgame. I packaged and froze the meats I bought to be used later, and took the meat off the bones of the rotisserie chicken. I'll use part of the meat for two chicken salads, one with green grapes and almonds, the other with cranberries and walnuts. I'll probably hide a little of sliced breast meat for a sandwich. I have bacon and an avocado that play nice with roast chicken. I might even use the cranberry-pecan bread I got at MB yesterday. It's another item I can't find easily, and with MB back, IT'S back in rotation!

Now you've got me curious. I found that allspice made a better cinnamon sugar, so i might be inclined to favor allspice. It seemed to be a robust flavor. Nutmeg enhances almost anything so that one is definitely in.

Then again, ham & cinnamon may be really tasty.

I'll let you know how it comes out.

I agree. I find allspice too strong. Anything over a tiny pinch and it is all you can taste.

Preparing for a hot humid day!

I cooked and peeled a handful of shrimp for a small shrimp salad, boiled a couple of eggs, refilled the ice cube trays and the iced tea jug!

Now it will probably snow!

Why should you be left out? We had a frost overnight...
