Christmas Comes This Evening.

She's due to land in Washington D.C. about 3:20 this afternoon and be down here early this evening.  So I've been cleaning, wrapping more presents and counting minutes.  When asked what she'd like to eat she  asked me to make her some pasta salad, it's made and waiting in the refrigerator, and a roast for sandwiches is cooking.  Other things she asked for are sour cream, a large tub awaits her, barbecued ribs, a slab is in the freezer, and bacon.  She can get bacon in Japan, but it's more like Canadian bacon.  She wants good old fashioned American streaky bacon.  Bought 2 packages, one's in the freezer and the other in the cold cut drawer.
I'm trying to plan menus of food that she wouldn't normally get in Japan, though she loves Japanese food.  So we'll be having Schnitzel, Gumbo, Shrimp and Rice, Bacon and Eggs and of course lamb for Christmas, it's waiting in the freezer.
So we'll soon all be fatter and happier.
Time to exercise.

Saturday in the Swamp

Beautiful cold day here, down to 36º last night and only expected to reach 60º today, but the sky is blue and it looks wintery. Lots to get...
