Hello dear hearts..
Just checking in with you all during these in between days of Christmas and New Years..
Hope you are all enjoying this holiday week..
I was telling someone that Terry and I kind of feel in limbo waiting until Saturday when all of the family arrive to celebrate..
I have been doing a little preparing..
Getting out some old serving dishes..
Planning on how to sit 17 people and which dishes to use and napkins and such...
And what about the menu..
I hope I have it fixed as we went shopping today and I doubt Terry would be very thrilled if he needed to go again.. grin..
Tonight we are in the midst of a huge storm..
On our way home it started and in just a half hour the roads were slippery..
There is a wind whistling and snow is pelting down..
Sometimes it is almost like sleet..
It should be over tomorrow sometime, though..
Dear hubby bought us a treat for our supper tonight..
Two lovely lobsters..
A favorite of ours..
I just couldn't imagine throwing those lovely shells out..
I found a recipe on the web for lobster broth and it is simmering away out there in the kitchen..
It can be used for
a soup base or even a lobster risotto or just a nice hot cup of broth on a cold day..
I think I will make a seafood chowder and use it as the base.
Shonda and her family are planning on coming and staying overnight tomorrow and as they are going skiing before they get here it should help warm them up... eh?
I need to do a couple of preparations for the storm before I go to bed..
Filling my washer with water and making a big thermos of coffee just in case the hydro goes off...
Wondering what you are all doing these days..
Well, must go sweet ladies..
Hope you are keeping nice and warm where ever you are..
Thanks so much for stopping by.. I am so enjoying your lovely comments..
You guys are awesome..
