Signs of Winter 2015

Handy's birthday went smoothly, with my delicious prime rib...

and Ina Garten's carrot cake cupcakes. Nuts or no nuts? Some of each. 

Hunter the kitten is very kittenish. We had forgotten what that was like. 

Because said kitten is into everything, I do not have a tree. Only this--

This wreath has shriveled some, but it was lovely when I got it. Hand made by a former Hogwarts student. 

Almost everything in my yard is dry and dead, so this rose was a surprise. 

My heart is a little shriveled and dry, too. I'm missing Ernest who is staying East this winter.

No Ernest for Christmas?!

Oh, I am sorry... to not have the boy home for Christmas is painful indeed. {{hugs}}

I just got the Food Lab cookbook and boy could I have used this post earlier. I made prime rib for my family's early Christmas and even though it was cooked to a very nice medium rare, it was not as tender as I would have liked. I'm coming to the conclusion that I might not like prime rib but maybe I'll give it one more try with this method. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
