Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to one & all. We had a very small Christmas this year. But, it was great. The 3 of us just did stocking gifts for each other. Our big present is a group gift. All our 22 year old daughter wanted for Christmas is hockey tickets for the Penguins/Stars game in March. That is 3 tickets, a trip to Dallas for Mom & Dad, motel room, food, etc. Tickets don't even go on sale until Monday!
Yesterday Ted & Amanda did their annual pierogy making thing. They have been doing this little process for almost 10 years. I just watch. They have it down. Dad rolls out the dough & cuts the dough. Amanda plops the potato/cheese mixture in the middle & crimps the edges. They she plops them in the boiling water. Then we have fish, pierogies, and veggies for dinner. It's kind of a Polish thing. I love pierogies; could eat them all the time. Store bought ones just aren't the same. I found a website for a company in New England that makes them & ships them fresh. Mmmmm.
Today we are making ham, potato casserole, hot fruit compote, and veggies for dinner. Can't wait! Oh, and I made a chocolate chess pie. Haven't made it in a long time. It was chocolaty good! With fresh whipped cream. Mmmmmm. Short & sweet today.

I don't even know what a chocolate chess pie is, but it sounds good. You had me at "chocolate". Simple can sometimes be good. I am realizing more and more that what I think I want and need isn't actually what is best for me. Don't know how that applies here, but that's what popped into my head.
