Saturday night, December 24, 2016.
Well, plan was we'd be down at Mother Blonde's cottage for Christmas eve, having dinner with her and Mrs M's brother and sister and their families. But Mrs M has the flu. She's buried under the covers in bed. So we're stuck here for tonight. Maybe tomorrow too. But no fear! Tonight I whipped up dinner for the Mannion guys and me. A whole turkey breast from the supermarket deli and sides from various cans, boxes, bags, and jars---mashed potatoes, stuffing, mixed vegetables, and cranberries. Turned out pretty good. For dessert we have apple pie. Store bought but it looks delicious.
Tomorrow afternoon, if Mrs M still isn't up for traveling, we're going to see Rogue One and then having dinner at Perkins.
A merry enough Christmas, all things considered. Hope yours is at least as merry! And Happy Hanukkah too!
