THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

The original plan was to spend the holiday in Charleston with the Legal Diva's family, but due to some last minute car problems, that plan was aborted. Instead we spent Christmas in DC, just me and my Baby. We cooked, watched football, played board games, and rented movies.

If the Giants had won, I would have been ecstatic, but since the Vikes lost, I was still full of good cheer.

The food came out great. On Saturday I roasted some pork loins. I marinated them in whiskey and olive oil then roasted them slow. I diced up a sweet potato and boiled it in chicken broth, to which I added a can of garbonzos, roasted peppers, and a slab of irish butter, and let it reduce. Yummy. We tried out the quick spatzle in a box. Not as good as fresh, but with the sauteed onions, okra, and carrots on top, it was still good enough.

Sunday's repast involved a roast chicken, seasoned and seared, and roasted wrapped in bacon and stuffed with sausage stuffing. It was the best chicken ever cooked by anyone ever. We also had green beans with onions, and some mac and cheese that we forgot and left in the oven, but was even better because it got all crunchy.

We watched the Johnny Depp 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', which we liked, and 'Must Love Dogs' which we didn't.

On Monday I went to Highland Falls/Ft. Montgomery. My old stomping grounds. I visited with my brother's family. It's always good to see them, and I wish I could do it more often. That night I met up with Sam Saldivar, whom I hadn't seen in about twenty years. We had a great time catching up, and stomping on the old stomping grounds. I have the wounds to bear witness to a truly great evening.

Yes, I will go on record as saying that Ted was still bleary eyed at 6pm last night.

One thing I don't understand - what is this "cooking" thing you're talking about?
 
I think he was tired from all the stomping. Stomping is tiring.
 
Weary from the stomping, you got it right Dave.
 
Ted's an excellent stomper.
 
Up and down the driveway....
