Oh Yes, a Good Christmas

Dad is working DC's dinosaur puzzle for him. Jo is assembling a yet another teenage mutant dino dragon transformer. Kate is pulling a foam rabbit out of a hat, repeatedly. Brian has mooched enough muffins, bacon, donuts, and dog hair to produce one remarkable diaper already.

Dishwasher is running. One more load and I should be able to start cooking Christmas dinner. Cow with no crust on duxelles, goose on a bed of sauerkraut, braised artichokes, buttered potatos, creamed spinach, fresh pineapple, relishes, cheesecake, fruit cake, and chocolate pie if all goes according to plan.

For sure we can't order pizza. We still have only one car we can even get into - and no reason to do so, given that the half inch of ice is even slicker today. Yesterday's sunshine melted the toppest layer, which promptly refroze into a perfect glaze.
