Oh yes, I also put on a pot to make Turkey Stock from the carcass Rob had put in the freeze for me. Once cooled over night I will skim it, sieve it and have a lovely homemade stock for soups. Tis the Season for soup ... and truly it has been cold enough for soup to be a welcome entree by anyone these past couple of days. Rob & I? we like soup pretty much anytime.
Along with the 52 Week Money Challenge, and by the way thanks for signing up with the rest of us Cassie (still not too late for others to join in if you like, just click HERE to find out more), I always try to save loonies and toonies for the Year in my Nest Egg. Last Year it had been added to my 52 Week money savings bringing it up to $1,500.00 or so.
Rob was home for a little bit this afternoon. What did he do while he was home? he busied himself doing a "man" thing which of course involved a TV and its remote.
Hopefully the newer TV will last as long as the old one did, but one never knows now a days in this "throw away World" we live in.
Tomorrow is New Year's Eve. Being the wife of a man who owns his own Cab Company, I will be a Cabbie Widow tomorrow evening, while my Crabby Cabbie is out getting responsible people, who take cabs home when drinking, home safe and sound. They have had a snow squall warning in effect, so I am truly praying the 80% precipitation they are forecasting tomorrow night changes down to something less threatening so at least the roads will be good for Rob and our guys to be out driving in.
What plans do you have to bring in the 2014 New Year? for New Year's Day I am going to roast a Prime Rib Roast, and do up some Rosemary Potatoes in the Crock Pot, along with a fresh steamed vegetable for our dinner. I also think I might make some Yorkshire Pudding to go along with the meal to make it that much more special for us.
Oh yes, before I sign off for the evening you might like to see what our Bandit had for his breakfast this morning. Please do by *clicking* HERE.
Tomorrow I will get the other few Christmas items put away again until next Year, so it will be "bye bye Christmas".
My headache has returned with a flourish, feeling like a very huge darning needle is coming through the left side of my brain out my left eye. I have take yet MORE meds, hoping it will subside sooner then later. On that note, I think I will sign-off for now to get the dinner dishes washed up and relax the remainder of my evening, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
