We've been going Amish this Christmas. Not out of any life philosophy, but rather due to the fact that everything technological in the house (and a thing or two biological) is breaking down. The microwave is out of commission. The toaster oven is only toasting the back end of whatever you insert. Even Manifold Destiny is out because the Subaru is leaking an awful gas smell (after having been "repaired" of the issue last week).
|Remember this? A brilliant idea only a guy could come up with|
Those would be "Megan's Sugar Cookies," which I posted about here. I tend to get stuck in gift ruts, so the neighbors will find a few sugar cookies on their annual plates.
And a friend came by yesterday bearing a gift. I was empty-handed, but fortunately I was also in the process of making granola, and she went away with a baggie-ful. This was the granola I traditionally give out to some of my husband's co-workers, and which I posted here.
|NOT how yesterday's was presented, but you get the idea|
And finally, if you'd rather they did some of the cooking, you can always give them a new cookbook and get a concrete date on the calendar for a potluck dinner. I'm still plugging this cookbook because I use it at least once a week:
|Imagine how often I'd use it if I actually were vegetarian!|
Merry Christmas (or Christmas-Alternative) to all. I'll be taking Christmas Eve off, but then I'll come roaring back with the usual get-your-food-life-in-gear New Year's post!
