Our Christmas day was mostly spent volunteering for a local group. We helped serve turkey and fixins. The lunch was a great success, and I think our guests enjoyed themselves as much as we did. My sister helped organize the day, and since she's great at managing we just showed up and did as told. The lunch made the local paper, and apparently the wrong photo was slipped into the article. That's actually my mom and I.
- Swiss Miss needs more imagination and an increased product line. There are so many foods that should be dehydrated and put into packets. Personally I'd like to create a gravy beverage. I wish gravy ice cream would work, but I think that it needs to be in a warm vehicle. It wouldn't be gravy... it would be gravy-flavored beverage.
- Bryan thought my gravy beverage idea to be moronic, and frankly his idea really does trump mine: Swiss Miss Instant Borstch. Just add hot water, then chill.
- If I were able, I would be a French Barry White tribute act and call myself Beurre Blanc.
- I've imagined a new (revolting) cocktail. My take-off on a classic White Russian is made with vodka and lots of little packets of coffee creamer. At first we called it a White Canadian, but we're going with Canadian Russian. Catchy, huh?
So there you have it. We ate wonderful food, and then headed back here to Central Maine. The temperature on the drive was quite balmy:
We're in Maine tonight and heading to Boston in the morning. I'm looking forward to blogging regularly over the next few weeks, so please do get back in the habit of stopping by. 2009 has been a hard year for a lot of people. Bryan and I, though, aren't ashamed to admit that it has been one of the strangest and most wonderful years of our lives. 2010 will be great for us all- let's just believe in it. Happy New Year!
