I hope your Christmas Day was all you hoped it would be. We were home, Charlie's mom joined us on Christmas Eve, and spent the night with us. Charlie made a wonderful beouf bourgignon, and I ate like a starveling.
And, we had SNOW! Now, I know to many of you, that's like saying "and we got the Black Plague!", but I grew up in Florida, and even after being north of there for 30 years, I have never once had Christmas snow (that's any considerable snowfall either on Christmas OR Christmas Eve). Never once before THIS year, that is! How Great can Christmas snow be, especially when everyone you need to have at your house is already there??
Christmas Day was bright and sunny, but cold, so the snow didn't melt. Charlie went nuts on gifts, as usual, and I got some beautiful things; most notably, a nice, big, fat, juicy gift certificate to PTI!! I almost ditched the rest of the day to shop! (I did manage to control myself, however!) Yes, that puppy has been spent, btw....
I made a stuffed pork loin for Christmas dinner, with roasted potato wedges and a yummy, rich spinach casserole. As usual, all of my cooking skills evaporate on Christmas Day. I have no explanation for this phenomenon, but it never fails. I just need to quit cooking on Christmas, I think. The pork was blah as blah gets. No flavor, dry, and just blah. Nobody really cared, I think. Just frustrating, because I am usually a pretty good cook. Oh well. Just food.
So, that's my day.
To thank people who were kind enough to send us gifts, I made some thank you cards.
They look like this--

I'm posting these on CAS-ual Friday's CFC84 challenge blog. Wish me luck!
Happy New Year!
