    Default What I do for my daughter

    Have received several comments of "this would really be good with some
    dried cherry chutney." Her command is my wish. Her wish, my command.

    Two half pint jars and some extra for me came from the BWB a couple
    hours ago. Might be the last of my gifts to wrap.

    I would have just handed her the recipe...

    ;-)

    Merry, merry!

    Oh yes, what we do for kids...sometimes just handing off a recipe
    doesn't work--for example:

    I make a lentil stew that my nephew & niece just adore. Yup, I gave
    them the recipe. Nope, it didn't work. They said they tried it and
    it "didn't turn out" like mine did. Now, this may be a lame excuse
    for me to make it but, I'll chalk it up that they just love me so much
    that they want me to make it when they come over to visit.

    I think the more modern tradition is to tell her "google it, dope!"

    That's what mothers DO, isn't it? And sometimes daughters "do"
    for us, too.

    I spent the past four days helping out with our son's very
    colicky baby at their house in the mts.

    Now they are visiting at our house for an early Christmas
    with our daughter's family who are spending the holidays in
    California (It's the in-laws' turn for them.)

    When I knew I wouldn't be back home in time to do any food
    shopping, much less cooking as we had planned, Dear Daughter
    offered. I told her "Something simple will be fine."

    Our menu? Homemade eggnog
    Phyllo hors d'oeuvres: spinach and cheese pockets, rolled pulled
    pork with jalapenos and cheese.
    A grilled beef tenderloin roast, mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes,
    green beans, Yorkshire pudding, mixed baby greens salad with
    candied pecans and some sliced very sweet pear.
    Cheesecake with blackberry coulis for dessert

    Sometimes daughters "do" for us, too. I couldn't be prouder of her.

    We're going to our daughters house in Texas, the new baby will be close
    enough for us to visit. We're taking a seven-pound standing rib roast, a
    couple of dozen homemade whole wheat dinner rolls, two lemon meringue
    pies (made with juice and peel from our Ponderosa lemons)and a host of
    envelopes. This year we're giving the descendants money to help defray
    the deficit spending our Congress Critters are doing.

    Yup....I've been baking buns for days for the 3 different dinners we'll be
    attending....4 batches of cookies are in the freezer already. 2 pies backed
    over the last 2 days for tonight's dinner.. My oldest (16) said "are we
    having pumpkin pie for Christmas dinner?" I told her to make sure she got a
    piece today because on Christmas day we're having trifle (my in-laws are
    Brits and my hubby looks forward to what his mom brings every year). "Ew",
    she says....

    On Thursday I realized that I was totally out of Cranberry Orange Chutney -
    something I make every year and always have for turkey feasts...I rushed out
    to the grocery store to get all the ingredients and dusted off the
    canner....well, not really...the canner never rests long enough in my house
    to collect dust

    happy holidays, everybody!!

    I just did a double-take reading that, on first glance I read it as
    "lethal stew"! =:-0

    May I have your daughters share of trifle, I do like the stuff but no
    one else in the family does. Had a Brit working for me in the Middle
    East whose wife made a marvelous trifle, light, airy, and delicious.
