So, what do you want Santa to bring you in 2017?

My only cooking related item on my Xmas list is a new cover for my Weber Genesis. So far.

So, what are you hoping to find under the tree this year?

Or, for Hanukkah, festivus, or whatever you hope to get gifts for.

My daughter is not doing Thanksgiving this year, so that means I can stay home. I also means since she had all of her in-laws last year, she will probably be doing Christmas this year. So she will be expecting me. I already told her what I want. I let my ears close up, so I told her that I would find a place close to home and she could pay to get my ears pierced again. I have a number of expensive earrings that I have received over the years. So for the past year I haven't been able to wear any of them.

So since I am staying home with just Pirate and myself for Thanksgiving this year, Spike heard me talking to Pirate about having tasted a "fresh" turkey as to a frozen one. Spike went out and bought me a small fresh one. I am going to cook it tomorrow (Sunday) and make a potato stuffing for the neck and a bread one for the cavity. There will be enough left from both to make two small casseroles. If I feel like it, I will also cook up a green veggie. I discovered much to my dismay, that I have no celery for the stuffings'. So instead I am going to used crushed celery seed. Plenty of Bell's Seasoning though. Along with a pumpkin pie with a ginger snap cookie crust. Mostly for Pirate.

I've been asking for the same things for the past 50 years, but I doubt I'll ever get them. A choo-choo train that I can sit on and ride around the yard, and a saltwater pool with dolphins that I can swim with,

LOL, I don't think this site is big enough to contain my list...

My kids are always telling me to stop buying gadgets - I don't need them and honestly it is true..

Do need a food mill and
a new vacuum wrapper (that actually vacuums),
Wall rack for rolling pins,
pressure gauged pressure cooker,
2 smaller sized slow cookers,
Carbon Steel Wok (yes, I have my cast iron one, which I love, but have uses for a carbon steel one as well)
The next 2 aren't 'gadgets' per se but...
more cupboards and a new kitchen faucet with a pull down sprayer.
Not finished but am late to tend the geese...
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

In the last few years since I scaled back to part time work, and then fully retired, I've bought everything I need. Now I just play in the kitchen with all my toys.

I want an InstanaPot - I think that's what it's called. It's the electric pressure cooker that you can use in umpteen million different ways. I got an Ostera turkey roaster at the begging of the month when Walmart had them on sale. Used it last weekend to roast a chicken and it turned out wonderfully.

My needs are filled. My wants are few, other than all the blessings of life for my loved ones.... I'm good.
