My DIL who hails from Michigan talks fondly about having had KDs in her youth. At our house, we had mac and cheese made from that same blue box but I had never heard it called KD.

apparently, there's a whole world of abbreviations, now of commonplace usage, that sprang up while i was sleeping....

kd was around when i was a kid. i just never confused it with the real thing. i thought it was something you ate at camp, or if your mom didn't know how to cook. that powdery-tasting cheese memory has kept me from ever picking it up as a convenience food....

I would LOVE to be doing something right now other than reading posts on doing nothing.....but that's exactly where I'm at! LOL.

It so cold out here even the trees are wearing PJ's and won't wake up. It's all pretty and hoar-frosty looking outside, and the boids are waiting for the feeders to fill (oh, self-filling birdfeeders; wouldn't that be wonderful?)

It's 9:06AM and I'm still in my PJ's. The woodstove finally warmed up though, so it's possible that I could actually move around without icicles forming on my nose....

I want to try making hard candies today, especially for the senior citizens I visit in a nursing home. One is wheelchair bound, finds the air so dry there that she keeps sipping water, but then needs to ring for someone to take her to potty but they don't always come.

I shopped around for hard candies for her to suck (her fav flavour is cherry) but only found Lifesavers to suit her....yet they break easily in the mouth....so I just copied off recipes from the net, and will give it a go.

I don't have cherry flavoring though....will use almond instead.

I'm watching youtube vids on the TV. I think I'll go turn one of the extra sausages I grilled last night into a breakfast sandwich.

Getting ready to clean out the fridge. I may leave that till tomorrow after the trashmen have emptied the dumpster, it's overflowing. I would like to vacuum today...but it's foot ball day. I guess I'll just read a book and goof off.

I have to clean out my fridge today also. It's packed to the hilt. I'm no longer even sure what's in there!

This morning I am preparing my Secret Santa gift and taking pictures to put into the accompanying menu. I am making a Christmas Champagne Sunday brunch for two, featuring orange Swedish pancakes (Swedish pancake mix with orange zest mixed in) with butter (butter does not require refrigeration short term) and Mandarin orange syrup (I am providing canned Mandarin orange slices to be simmered by the giftee in pure cane syrup, which I am also providing), basted egg (eggs do not require refrigeration short term), bacon (pre-cooked bacon does not require refrigeration), home made sliced banana walnut bread mini-loaves with butter and Mandarin orange marmalade, Mimoasas made with Proseco and orange juice (the flutes, wine and orange juice are part of the gift), espresso roast French Press coffee (the coffee and the French Press are part of the gift), and a selection of organic green and oolong teas (the cast iron pot and cups are part of the gift, as are the teas from Gypsy Tea Company).

Horrendous night. Got home by 2 and was up by 3 talking to Ralph and Bula on the big white phone. Stomach bug. A few people I have had contact with over the last 36 hours had\have it also. Nice, sunny Sunday, but I can only watch it from outside the window. Couch ridden, watching Coronation Street.

I just know you drew my name for Secret Santa.

I took the tractor for a drive and shook the muddy clay off the tires that I got on it yesterday, then attached the snow blower to it. I've got a feeling I'll be running it tomorrow morning, as this snow is sticking.
Watching TV now, wishing I could get the Denver/NE game later today.
