We enjoyed Christmas here...my children (save for Michael in Berlin, of course) joined us for the day, as did our friend, Susanne. Now we are gearing up for New Year's. We are invited to some friends' for New Year's eve. This happens to be the home of a co-worker of Ray's who also worked with him way back in the former days of working at Ray's first employer - so it appears many on the guest list will be friends and co-workers of Ray's of those days gone by. I won't really know many if any of them...but whatever, who doesn't mind going out for an evening of some socializing? At least I'm not doing the work and can sit back to enjoy.
Tomorrow we have invited a couple, good friends of ours, for dinner at our home. On New Year's day itself we'll have my children over again for dinner. Today I spent much of the afternoon making up turkey pot pie filling and then assembling the filling into individual aluminum pie plates and a pie dough over top each. Some will go to my children. And so the leftover turkey meat has been used up this way. I also made two pots of turkey broth from the carcass. (We had to break the carcass into two pieces to fit into two large pots!). So we have lots of turkey broth for soup making. (Some used for making the pie filling).
Ray has this time off between Christmas and New Year's. What have you folks here been up to?
