We made quick stop at Tractor Supply, but nothing jumped at us so off to Carson Valley Inn for an earlier lunch than normal. Now we know why we wait until 1300 to eat there. The place was hopping and we had to wait probably only 5 minutes or so but at 1300 there's no waiting.
|A little dusting..this day was so cold and the mountains|
sure made it look that way..no sun all day.
After a delicious lunch we headed home. We went next door and delivered a couple of Christmas presents to them before Joe headed off to work in Winnemucca.
Friday and Saturday were spent cooking and cleaning the kitchen. I swear I'd cook something, clean and do it all again. I always tell Ken, give me 10 inches and i'll mess up all 10 inches, give me 10 feet i'll mess up all 10 feet. Between the two days I got a delicious ham and cheddar macaroni salad, turkey, stuffing, gravy, summer sausage, cheese, sausage cheddar balls and a breakfast casserole for Christmas morning at Bryan's house done. Then yesterday afternoon Ken asked me to bake something for our other neighbors on the other side. So that was how yesterday ended.
|Sausage cheddar balls..(even though they're not really round)|
|Turkey cooked low and slow, breast side down..|
|Stuffing that was in the turkey..yummm|
|Brownies for next door|
|Breakfast casserole for Bryan's house..made some|
country gravy to go with it :)
|Cookies for next door..|
Last night we ran over there to deliver and ended up sitting by the fire at their house for awhile. Home, bed and now I'm gonna get my sweetie up to get this day going and head over the hill.
We've got reservations in Auburn, CA tonight and then in the am we'll run over to Bryan's in Georgetown for gift opening. We'll probably stop by Eric's house in Cool to check out what Santa brought. Then to my sister's in Fair Oaks where most of the family will end up for some good food and family time. Later in the day we'll head for Ken's moms house and then to the hotel in Rocklin, CA.
We'll head home Tuesday morning and it looks like i'll be going back over the hill on Wednesday to pick up 2 of our grandsons. Mason and Aaron both want to come over until January 3rd! One happy grandma (and Papa) here.
Have a great day and a wonderful Christmas EVE!
