I haven't been posting regularly lately, but have been keeping up with you. I have a couple of photos to show you. Finally, on my way home from work yesterday, I saw the surfer sculpture with clothes. But check this out - kind of disappointing. A torn tee-shirt? I'm not sure what it is.
I don't know what it means, but he was also in the news tonight, so I Googled and found this most recent offering - he's being attacked by a spider. Not very Christmasy.
I love the photos you all get of lots of birds on the overhead wires, and on the same trip home I was stopped at a light and looked up and:
The last thing is... I'm cooking the turkey tomorrow for my son and his family. I've been very busy all week shopping, wrapping last minute gifts, picking up the last of the food I needed, cleaning, etc. I love making turkey and dressing and gravy, but it seems like just when things are really busy in the kitchen, the MASHED POTATOES need to be mashed. And I have a small galley kitchen. So I looked on line for a make ahead recipe for the potatoes and found one that looked good. I tried it out tonight so that I could just pop it in the oven tomorrow. There was extra after I filled the casserole dish, so I had some for MY dinner tonight.
All I can say is: DELICIOUS! Really good. I minced the onion up really small and it added such flavor to the potatoes! I didn't do the garlic, but may in the future. I hope the kids like them, because I made a LOT!
I don't know how many pounds I used - I just used five large russets, with the peels off. Here's the recipe - if you are interested in it, click and it will be clearer:
Now I'm going to relax and enjoy my evening, because tomorrow's going to be early and busy!
