Merry Christmas, GN! ( Happy Birthday #1Son!)
Christmas Eve ran a little late here (6:30am) so PMK’s famous Eggs Bennies will be lunch this year.

Just got back from Cartersville…and boy, is my azz tired!

Had a pleasant -- if wifeless -- time. (Although the children are taking good care of her thus far…which will continue, if they know what’s good fer ’em.) πŸ˜‰

Niece and nephew seemed to like their gifts and I didn’t overeat.

Hope everyone’s having a delightful day.

Happy Birfday to K8-E Son numero uno!!1!

Merry Christmas, Mac and Elena!

Dubya seems to be a pretty decent person; just wasn’t a very good POTUS. But decency -- by my own definition -- counts a fair amount in an elected official.

However, fealty to the Constitution is far more important to me. AFAIC, every public official who doesn’t take that part of their oath of office in deadly earnest is a traitorous scumbag who ought to face extremely severe consequences for that failure. (Which I believe is the primary cause of the situation we presently find ourselves in.)

Heh…sneaky Mac; I just trashed my kilting comment after it posted and I saw yours from three hours ago.

Her BiL could not eat it last night.

Many years ago, I was having tandoori beef in an Indian restaurant in North Hollywood and a customer from Mumbai said he couldn’t handle that dish the way this particular establishment prepared it.

To be honest, it was at the upper limit of my tolerance…but it was also really tasty; not just preposterously spicy.

The rib roast is resting, the Yorkshire pudding is in the oven. Noms soon to follow.

Hai, Paddy!

Sounds delish.

Speaking of Yorkshire pudding, TerriblyDeprivedK has never had popovers; I shall have to make her some when she returns.

I’m with you on the white meat; glad one can purchase turkey breast roasts which not only cook faster than a whole bird but also have only the good stuff.

I’ve found that many varieties of hot peppers can vary a fair amount re heat. Easy to handle by tasting when they’re an ingredient, not so much when they’re the basis for the dish. πŸ˜‰

Addendum(b): The way they’re cut can also cause variance in the heat.

Christmas is winding down; I hope you all had a delightful day.

Mac: I too admire George Bush. Not the greatest president ever, but a man of character and class. And after 9/11, standing in the rubble of New York city, who could have motivated the country better? Can you imagine if 9/11 had happened on Obama’s watch?
