Guys

I had a lovely day and it was a privilege to cook for the family and watch them open their presents

But I got the present of a lifetime and would like to share it with you

My present from my sister................................. After too many years in a wheelchair she stood and walked albeit aided to me with her gift.

A kiss to say thanks

I'm welling up as I type this

I've gotta go I can't see the screen

May Christmas bring you all a miracle as well

Cody



That is truly awesome. All I want for Christmas is my missing kitty, Coal , to come home


If you don't mind me asking, why hasn't she been able to walk? And what has aided this transformation?

I've had apple, cherry, plain & peach. Oh forgot about the strawberry but they added
to much sugar for me.
How's the tomato that sounds interesting. Maybe we should have
Pumpkin Pie! I bloody bet there already is one! & even an Egg Nog Shine.

Cheers
Ektar

Well nixie i'll tell ya it's the cats pajama's if you like strong stiff drinks.
But ya gotta be careful and bring your wits with you. Shine has a reputation for lowering inhibitions and judgment.... lots of regrets for some folks I know


Not this fella tho, I tend to stick to holidays and occasions for the drinks. Or perhaps the ever elusive night out.

The tomato was very crisp and clean, I had it last christmas actually.
This year mom had maraschino cherries soaked in moonshine then frozen and covered in dark chocolate.

Yep we get spoiled when we visit moms lol.

FYI I love your idea about the pumpkin pie moonshine, cuz I love me some pumpkin pie.

Here's how to make Peppermint Christmas Shine. Just substitute Shine for the vodka....

This would make a wonderful holiday gift. Drink it straight or mixed in with some hot chocolate for a decedent cup of adult good cheer!!!

PEPPERMINT VODKA OR Christmas Shine.

1 - 1.75 liter of vodka
1 package of candy canes
1 teaspoon peppermint extract (optional)

-Using a food processor, grind up all the unwrapped candy canes to a very fine powder.
-Using a funnel, add the vodka to a peppermint vodka bottle of your choice.
-Dry the funnel completely and use it again to SLOWLY funnel the powdery candy cane mixture into the bottle.
**TIP - Do not do it the other way around as I did. I added the candy cane powder first and then the vodka. All that did was form a hard candy mass at the bottom of the bottle that is still taking a long time to dissolve. If you add the vodka first, the candy cane powder will dissolve as you slowly add it into the bottle. Learn from my mistakes people
**
-Allow the mixture to sit for a few days and then take a small taste test to determine if you need more peppermint flavor. If so, add the peppermint extract.

Just been on Skype for over an hour and a half with two of my oldest friends. Technology at its finest and great to be able to catch up on today of all days.

I hope you guys are all OK and coping well - I've had a quiet but pleasant day pottering about watching TV and playing the odd MMORPG (currently well into World of Tanks)- cooked far too much food for one person to ever eat (leftovers will last for days!!!) and am gearing up for a long day of traveling tomorrow to see my folks.

So, it was your shooting I heard late last night up here on the mountain top, in the Blue Ridge Mountains where I live.


I raise a jelly jar of Christmas shine to you Dear Friend. It was too quiet anyway.


It might have been me firing an anvil.

I don't know if its my age or not, but as I was eating earlier I just found myself deeply saddened by the idea that - in this day and age, with all our pomp and technology and supposed "civilised" society, that there are homeless people out there sleeping rough today.

We don't realise how priviledged we really are. We're really not "alone" on the internet.

Its a sobering thought isn't it?

You are right. I drive through the "homeless community" or the underpass of a bridge everyday, and it could be much worse.

On our honeymoon, we had a day trip to Jamaica. After a few hours, all we wanted to do was start a human and animal welfare rescue. It was abysmal.

Huge mansions on the hilltops, while the people live below in nothing but whatever scrap washed up on the beach. The school was three cinderblock walls and a dirt floor.

So we are just thankful for running water and electricity. With the exception of a few areas like Appalachia and some parts of the south, Americans really don't know what poverty is.

It's too bad (as I've been guilty of this as well) that we only think of them during the holidays when it's year round for them.

We had turkey, cornbread dressing, mashed taterses, broccoli casserole, green bean casserole, homemade cranberry sauce, deer sausage, purple hull peas, some sort of congealed salad (I don't eat Jello), a nice green salad, sweet potato pie, pecan pie, and a Cajun chocolate cake I make from scratch that takes hours to do (it's filled with whipped cream and a candy filling with dates, raisins and nuts).

We're all in a coma still.

in my case, they never let me forget them. XD

I get panhandled at every intersection, at every gas station, in front of Walmart. It is really awful. If someone gets creative, I might give a dollar.

Cornbeef hash (from a can) and Toad in a hole for breakfeast.
Pizza for supper.
This cake you speak of sounds sinful, hope you said ten hail mary's before eating it.

It does seem that way , I think Nef actually left out the fact he put all those ingredients in a pie because he doesnt want to fill any sterotypes
