Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve to everyone. This year it will be a quiet one for us. Chris is in Quebec.

Tonight we are making a shrimp and tomato pasta with a little cognac and cream. It is a very good recipe. I have posted it on my Pasta Fino Blog. Not exactly traditional Christmas fare but we like it.

Santa should be heading out soon. Take care all.


Christmas is almost here

It is still really cold here on the prairies. I am a bit envious of all the snow the rest of Canada is getting. Not that we don't have snow here, we have lots by Saskatchewan standards but I miss those really big storms with 30 or 40 cm of snow.

We are pretty close to being ready. The shopping is done, the turkey is in the fridge, the wine in the cellar so I guess we are set to go.

But...late afternoon Morgan went to turn on the kitchen tap and it came off in her hand. What would Christmas be without a plumbing job to keep me busy.
