Merry Christmas !!
It's Christmas Day is it?
That is the words of my 4 tear old son'
twenty two years ago.
A 4 year old is a magical little person.
They are curious,charming and loving.
Full of adventure; all sorts of wisdom is
being absorbed in their minds.
I got up as t 0215 this AM , not to wrap
or open presents, but to put the turkey
in the oven. Simple ... right.. Well the
turkey needs to cook about 3-4 hours and
my cake need to be baked. Therefore the cake
had to be mixed then and get in ahead of the turkey.
You just can't throw the turkey in, well some
person might do that but the giblets would be
cooked in it wrapped paper and it would not be
Anyhow,I need to clean chop celery,onion and
an apple and stuff the bird with that with a
stick of butter. Once that little "stuff" was
done I slid the bird into the baking bag and
roasting pan and placed on the bottom rack on
top of my round stone (so the bottom of the
turkey would not burn.
Then on to preparing the cake to make it that
I could have snuck back as to bed but I thought
Mike has to work and He would love his wonderful
Mayo's sausage, so I had to remove the turkey from
the oven cook some biscuits (canned) and sausage etc,
then returning the turkey I think it was 4 AM.
I recheck the icing recipe, and decided to use the
one that added pineapple to the top of the sheet cake
and using sour cream,confection sugar and cool whip.
YUM,was on the spoon!
By 4:30 Mike would be up so I had to wish him a
Merry Christmas and sip some Christmas coffee with him.
Now I am sleepy,tired and need to rise and meet the day...........
but I think , all would be well if I sleep in at least til 8 AM.Hum I can smell the turkey it smells "Christmasy"
Have a "MERRY CHRISTMAS" today.
