Seasonal Thoughts ...

Christmas is almost upon us and unlike many, I am dreaming of a White Christmas.

A really white Christmas.

The weatherman promised us a cold, snowy winter and I am going to hold him to that promise!

So far thought all he's producing is liquid snow - gallons & gallons of liquid snow.

All of my surprises have been bought  (that was the easy part).  

I buy about 95% of my gifts on the internet and have them delivered to my front door.  No crowds, no parking hassles and no long lines.  

I just open the door and there they are, waiting to get wrapped up neatly in some shiny & festive paper & bows (that's the hard part).

I need me some elves?

Yesterday I ordered our Christmas dinner.  We decided (Mike, Katy & I) that we would go the unconventional route again as we did with Thanksgiving and ordered Hickory Bacon wrapped Filet Mignon & Crab Cakes from a company called Kansas City Steak.

Oh ya, and cheesecake for dessert!  

I had bought a Groupon for them a while back and finally put it to good use. 

We like turkey but we LOVE steak and since there will only be the 3 of us this worked out great.  The steaks & Maryland style crab cakes will be delivered just before Christmas.

Time to fire up the new BBQ we just bought. 

What's everyone else cooking for Christmas dinner?

  1. That sounds delightfully yummy. We usually get a Honey Baked Ham spiral cut, and make a 7 layer salad (I need to get you the recipe I think you'd like it) and other holiday foods, but those are the 2 we LOVE the most for Christmas dinenr. Oh not sure what dessert will be yet, maybe I can talk Carina into making something for dessert.

    Hoping you and everyone have a White Wonderland Christmas.
