OOOOHHH..I love chinese chicken salads. I love the dressing. I can make my own and Kraft has that Asian sesame dressing that I always keep in my fridge. I like to make chicken teryaki and cut that up in it.

I didnt have chops , instead I had cheese ravioli. Not from a can either.

I am not a sausage fan. Unless its breakfast sausage.

This afternoon, I'm slow roasting a large chicken for Christmas Eve with 'surgically-implanted' pats of herbs & butter under the skin; I decided against turkey this year as I think a fresh organic chicken is going to provide superior flavor over something that was previously frozen etc. Christmas Day will be roast beef.

Cooking holiday meals used to involve a 'ritual' of drinking all day as I sipped - quaffed more like it - the wine and brandies that went into the sauces and marinades. I like the fact that now that I am dry, I still enjoy cooking and that it wasn't the drinking that anchored my interest as I once feared. I'm still a Kitchen Nazi and will kick out anyone who tries to interfere!

One of the many things that is wrong with me is that I simply cannot stand to sit at home on xmas day. So I hopped in the truck and moseyed down to Marysville. The Chinese Buffet was the only place that was open, so...

I had a very traditional Chinese xmas dinner :-D

Now I'm actually in the mood to watch "A Christmas Story" Gimme a minute, it'll pass.

Moseying anywhere sounds delightful compared to my day. And I love Chinese food. I already watched "A Christmas Story." Came into the middle of it the first time so I watched it again while I baked a batch of cookies for sister in law we supposedly are visiting tomorrow. Treadmill broke yesterday so I can't even use it. Husb is supposedly going to try to get the pieces welded back together on Monday. In the meantime, I may have to brave the cold outdoors to get some walking in. Trouble is, I never walk as fast outside as I do on the treadmill. Not near as good a workout. Guess I'd better just eat less. Goat, I wish you all the best, and of course, everyone else too!!

VC-What happened to the ham with the coffee glaze? My mouth was watering thinking about it today. Did you have the dude relative dinner last night? I tried Windows Live but don't think I'm doing it right.

Still working on leftover roast beef tonight. Twice baked potatoes are gone tho. Maybe I'll do some rice and salad. Or maybe just salad.... Happy Football Day to those that enjoy it!

What the heck is "bleurghh"? I googled it and couldn't find anything "meatlike". I love goose and duck! Have you ever tried the twice cooked duck? One of the recipes is Ina GArtens on the Food Network. Turns out fabulous!

Haven't decided what to do for dinner. Ran out of leftovers.
