The Postlady saved my hubby's butt....



She drove up the driveway, rang the doorbell and saved my DH butt....He had ordered his $10 family gift exchange and THEN found out it wouldn't be shipped until after Christmas....so I did him some emergency monogramming on sweatshirts....

Now, I can give my Mom the sweatshirts to give my step-dad and DH can give his own gift....

I won't reveal what is in the package as you never know who reads this blog, but it is the PERFECT GIFT!!

In the background of the picture you can see the capon thawing, Snowballs are in the big white bowl and you can see some already baked in the way back right side. I still have some gingersnaps to make and then will be done baking, cut not cooking. I hope to make up some tins or bags of cookies. I am responsible for mashed potatoes, dressing, capon, beef roast and homemade rolls. (Yes Carolyn, I am making the rolls too. Karen is on modified bed rest per me)

I did all the grocery shopping yesterday I THOUGHT!! I had a list, I kept to the list. I forgot 3 little gift bags,3 medium gift bags, 3 little bows and trash bags.
So another trip into town tomorrow and I DON'T WANT TO!! But I need something to put the cookies in and don't have tins, ziplocks or any plastic containers I can use.
Oh WAIT!! I know....I have brown lunch bags, sandwich size ziploads a hole punch and candy canes. I will make my own packages. Will show you a photo tomorrow,if I remember....

Happy Sewing Day!! I have to sew on a button today.

You make me tired just reading what you're doing. I have to ask, what on earth is a capon?

Merry Christmas - you're making me tired with all the things you're doing! Whew.

PS Please remember that capons, chicken, turkeys and all other meats thaw best and most safely covered in water. Better yet, give them a brine and have tasty, flavorful poultry (and no, it doesn't add to much sodium for folks with high blood pressure.)
