So Many Goodies Under My Tree!

December 23, 2011

I woke up to puddles and rain this morning.  The weather man is saying that we could have rain and snow showers today.  We'll see.   At the moment, it's only drizzling a little bit of rain. 

For Elee, I will be glad to share how I cook my scrambled eggs and green peppers.  First I dice up a  green pepper.  If I'm only cooking for myself and Tootsie, I use about a handful of the diced peppers and save the rest in the refrigerator for the next time.  (They can be frozen too.)  I put a chunk of margarine in the frying pan and toss in the peppers.  I open three eggs into a bowl and scramble them with a fork.

 Then I add a little milk (only a two or three tablespoons)  and scramble a bit more.  When the peppers are a little bit brown on one side (NOT burned) I pour the eggs in on top of the peppers and scramble everything together.  I turn the eggs frequently so that they are cooked all the way through.  Voila!  I personally like to butter some bread and make a egg and pepper sandwich.  Yummy!

This is one of our favorites for breakfast.  Other times we enjoy a bowl of raisin bran and milk.  Tootsie does not get the  raisins.  I hope this is helpful, and a very Merry Christmas to you, too.

Our mail lady has been busy bringing me packages these past few days.  A couple days ago, I got a wonderful package from Snowy.   This one contained some beautiful hand made gifts.  Snowy, you did a great job on the box, it's simply beautiful.   Thank you so much.

Yesterday's mail brought me a surprise package from my friend Mary Ann.  It contained a book about a dog named Oogy.  Mary Ann, this is so special.  All through school and into his early adult years, my brother's friends called him Oogie.  I've put the book under my tree along with all the other gifts.  I will  read it on Christmas Eve.  Thank you so much Mary Ann. 

Yesterday afternoon I went to the market and bought  all the fruit for my fruit baskets.  I made up one of the baskets and wrapped it in plastic wrap.  Tonight I will put the other fruit basket together.  There is so much fruit though that I have to put a lot of it in a separate box.  Ah, but that's the fun of it!

Last night, my dwarf friend and I went out to shoot some more photos of the Christmas lights.  I'll post some of them tomorrow.  First I have to go through them and crop a few for posting. 

I'm at work now so I have to start getting busy here.  The Mrs will be awake soon and wanting her breakfast.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
