How I spent the last day of 2006.

  1. I made coffee cake (delicious).
  2. We ate lunch out. Muffin Man ate two kids meals and was still hungry.
  3. We went to a new grocery store (weird, antiseptic, looked like the Jetson's maid would show up any minute.)
  4. Muffin Man and I baked Ginger Bread Cookies. The dough was delicious, and the cookies were like flat, teddy-bear-shaped, rocks. Sigh.
  5. I made Spicy Ginger Peanut Chicken (my own recipe). Delicious.

Tomorrow my SIL and her husband will come for dinner (that's what the prime rib is for). Prime rib, mashed potatoes, and braised brussels sprouts. She's bringing the dessert.

My New Year's Resolution: To put away the laundry. (Chest of) Drawers! What are they good for? Absolutely nothing. I said drawers! Huh, good God y'all.

May you all have a happy, healthy, peaceful, and prosperous New Year.

Love the song, heh.

I was struck by the baking bug last night... made chocolate chip cookies from scratch for the first time in probably 10 years.

Your little dude is growing and eating so much! He'll be a giant by the next time I see him!

Drawers! they ain't nuthin' but a heartbreaker....friend only to the undertaker! Sorry - got on a groove there....

I was looking to see if we had one of those grocery stores in our area, and of course -- no such luck. We are all, apparently, Luddites. I know that comes as a real shock.

So, did you go out and get more prime rib? (Ouch -- $91! That meat better have GOLD in it somewhere!)

Mmm, spicy ginger peanut chicken! Sounds like a great last-meal-of-2006.

I find Blooms to be over priced out here where we are. I am finished baking for a long time!

Ha! I can do one better. We have so much laundry it won't all fit in the drawers.
