So, I’m lagging behind in the whole Christmas prep flurry. The girls decorated on Friday, and last night Jim began cooking some of the turkeys for Christmas. Turkey #1 is finished and de-boned, and turkey #2 is getting ready to go into the oven. Now, you may say, isn’t it a little early to be cooking turkeys for Christmas? Well, normally I’d say yes, but the banquets are only 3 weeks away and last I heard we have almost 21 turkeys to be cooked. No, Jim is not cooking all 21, but he is helping the other ladies put a dent in that number so that no one has to do too many. Besides, he loves to cook and is good at it! In the meantime, I sit back and listen to my Christmas music and pour through the new cookie cookbook we got in the States trying to decide which yummy morsels the girls and I can start whipping up in the coming weeks! We also got a set of holiday cookie cutters to aid in the process. Yes, soon our kitchen will be cookie central, and wonderful smells will be drifting all through the house…yum!
