I started the day peeling potatoes; that way I had one thing done toward dinner before I went to Church. The roast in the crockpot required no attention. We went to early service, like always. That gets us home shortly after 9, and gives me plenty of time to make rolls and get all the other stuff cooked. Dessert was a pineapple upside-down cake I made yesterday evening.
The usual guests assembled: My daughter's family, minus Brett, but with a friend of Monica's here to fill in for him; and our motorcycle buddies... Cliff's sister and her husband.
Monica's little friend is reputed to be a picky eater, but she made three rounds at the glazed carrots and green beans in my buffet server.
How do you like my new roaster? It's my Christmas gift from Cliff. I wanted it so I'd be able to cook a turkey or ham in there, which would leave my oven free for other things, when I'm cooking for a crowd. The buffet server is a bonus, and I like it! It keeps your food warm for you, just like buffets in restaurants. This was the first time I used it.
How am I doing on my New Year's resolutions on the eighth day of January?
1. So far I'm losing weight... slowly
2. I've kept up with my daily Bible reading
3. I've played my guitar and sung at least one song every day except yesterday; I simply forgot to do it!
4. I've ridden my horse twice this year; my goal was to ride him at least once a week, even in winter. So far, so good.
Now I'm off to sing my song.
