I was gifted with a Salmon filet, wild caught in Alaska by a co-workers husband. Big enough for Shrek and me to have a feast. Smashed potatoes with butter and chives, steamed broccoli and I'll make a small cheesecake with roasted pecan crust.

Years ago I had some friends that lived on Kodiak Island. I used to go there twice a year to bring home some salmon that was caught during the run. I stayed on the back porch and watched from a distance as they caught what the bears didn't. I would bring back a cooler filled with smoked wild salmon. I want to move back to Tacoma.

You can have the bears all to yourself, and I will share the salmon. Why do you think I stayed on the back porch close to the door. Those Kodiak bears are BIG bears.

my sis called and nixed my plans to make something interesting for christmas dinner like the leg of lamb, or cioppino, or smoked turkey that i'd hoped for.

i was elected to make the same thing i make for every family gathering: meatballs and sausages. i think they think that's all i know how to cook.

mom is baking a ham, eldest sis is making chicken picatta, youngest sis is making baked ziti, and nieces and nephews are doing the desserts.

since we have excellent ethnic bakeries by us, we're bringing the rye and italian breads.

not sure who is doing appys and salad.

Bucky, if you can afford it, why not surprise her and bring both.

i don't want to make anyone upset by bringing something that everyone eats while their dish gets ignored.

it's happened before a few times where someone went through a lot of effort to make something special, and it sat untouched because there were other things put out first. then feelings get hurt, and they don't want to make anything for the next holiday, and so on.

it's best to just follow orders.

I hear ya! I did that a couple of times when I brought my tater salad and the host's was ignored and untouched. The second time her husband asked me to bring it. Even had the nerve to ask me to give my recipe to his wife when she was in hearing distance. I got glares for the rest of the night. But that was fine by me. She has never been one of my favorite people.
