I know, I know...everyone is cold right now. It's definitely winter! But...are you all dealing with negatives all day long? It didn't get above 0 today! Happy New Year, right? I have to say, I don't mind- cause I don't have to be outside in it, but my poor husband goes back to work on Monday and I know he's not looking forward to it. On the contrary- Jon's brother David goes back to the East on Monday, and since it's actually WAY warmer there, I don't think he's too sad about leaving!
We spent our New Years Eve here at home. David bought a Turkey Fryer and deep fried a turkey for us- he injected it with Louisiana Hot Sauce and covered it in Cayenne pepper. It was fabulous. I made jalapeno poppers and spinach and artichoke dip, Anah brought us her very best batch of potato salad (a family recipe that only she has perfected!) and Monica brought yams. I know what your thinking...yams? YES!!! YAMS!!! And you haven't had yams till you've had these. They were the show stopper!
I will post recipes on Maple and Vine...you can get there from the link on the right. It'll take me a couple days to get them on there, but I will...as for now, I need to go to bed- church is at 9 tomorrow! YAY!
Brett and I go to Hawaii!
