Christmas is in my hands this year

Sorry for the lack of posts. I'm rather behind on everything.

Unexpectedly, my wife was scheduled for surgery this week. Said surgery was very minor, took place this morning and she's doing fine, thanks to a skilled medical team and a Percocet prescription.

But, the surgery was on her shoulder. One whole arm is out of commission.

Not to mention the fact that she has a very, very low tolerance for any and all drugs.

This means I'll not only be busy as a bee, cleaning up the house for the holidays, but I'll be in charge of all culinary duties, as well.

I only started seriously exploring my interest in cooking, about three months ago. So, very much still an amateur, I've suddenly been called up to the big leagues! And my son wants a Turkey on Christmas Day, so it'll be my first. I yoinked a recipe from Gordon Ramsay, so we'll see! Then there's Christmas Breakfast and Christmas Eve, the latter of which is always an appetizer thing at our house.

I'm gonna try to get the News finished tonight or tomorrow. A whole slew of stuff has come out over the past couple of weeks!
