Kanchen, one of my four-footed boys, is recovering from knee surgery. He blew out a knee following some scent he ran across with his brother when we were out walking through the woods just before the start of the holidays. He’s doing much better now that the stitches have come out, but still has some pain he’s dealing with.
I was busy for the first couple days of my vacation baking up a storm. Everyone loves American cookies and I did up five batches for the holidays and then helped my wife make a tiramisu from scratch. The home-made tiramisu is my favorite though.
My time at cooking wasn’t finished since everyone loves to have an American style breakfast with bacon, home-style potatoes with cheesy scrambled eggs and stuffed French toast. I mean there are still a lot of dinners to be made with having seven people visiting, but that’s pretty easy. It pretty much gives me a good week before I have to really focus on cooking again, which will be a stuffed turkey. That means I’ll get some good writing time in. At least I’m managing to do that off and on since my Polish isn’t very good. It gives me some time to chill out while my wife visits with her sister’s family.
Anyway, this is just a quick post. I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holiday however you and your family celebrate this time of year. Make sure to enjoy this special time of year with family, friends and the spirit of giving.
