That sounds like fun! Are you going to be in Mexico for Christmas, Dawg?

We're already here, Cheryl! My cleaning lady is taking care of our house back home and watering my plants and feeding Beagle.

I got to sing carols last night with a classically trained opera singer. The band's sax player was from ND and MN, and I met the lady who owns the Morrocan fish tank place that eat the dead skin off your feet! Life can't get any better than this!

Oh, and we've managed to get a few snorkels in!

Sounds great! I knew you were already in Mexico, was just wondering if you were going to continue your vacation there through the Christmas holiday season. You probably mentioned somewhere, but I may have missed it!

Enjoy your trip...it sounds amazing, and you are so fortunate to have a trusted person to take care of the homestead while you're away. Hope to see more pics!

Cleaning up after curing 3 lb of gravlaks. The salmon was "killed" this morning after being inspected at the dock, in the sushi fridge for 12 hours. I think it is as safe as that gets.

Carved up the remainder of the ham and put three packages in the freezer, kept enough out for a couple of meals. The bone, gelatin/juices , fat and scraps are bubbling away on the stove.

Yesterday when I made my one egg batch of eggnog I used my stick blender and I was not impressed with the results. I had all of the ingredients so this morning I made a second batch using my old hand held electric mixer and the results were much better, you could almost eat it with a spoon!

Need to condense a few more leftovers and do another sink full of dishes, Christmas 2014 is fading fast!

Getting organized for a day of cooking and cleaning. We have 14 people coming for smorgasbord tomorrow. Yikes! The gravlaks is cured, the breads are made, just have to get going on the cabbage rolls, lefse, and meatballs.
