I'm ashamed to tell you that the tree wasn't down....yet
So now I can proudly tell you that all the ornements are put away and that the tree itself will be put in its box tomorrow and on its way to the basement.
Of course when you put away Xmas stuff; you cannot help but reminisce...
I got this cutie patootie from a flea in Massena NY in December.It is made in Japan
It set me back $1.
Now this is my yearly ornements in Pyrex pic.
I had a lot more but they were unbreakables and they got packed earlier
Most of the glass ornements are heirlooms from my parents and some are even from my grandparents, and even my great-grandparents.
We had snow so Dan shovelled evrything, I shoved a blade roast in the new crockpot with spices, onion,garlic and red wine , changed the beds, tidied the kitchen and started the beans for the cassoulet.
The Montreal Gazette published an easier and simpler cassoulet recipe so Dan wanted me to try it.
I was really surprised because last time we had it we had a really hard time digesting it even if it was made by a famous Montreal chef; I swear I burped it for 2 days.
Dan keeps making faces everytime someone mentions cassoulet!
in case you're wondering...Cassoulet is an old french dish with beans, duck, sausages and pork.
It is of course a cold weather dish....
I can't wait to taste it!
I hope mine goes down easier...lol
