As time races toward Christmas Day, we have gotten all the kids a little something for Christmas. The things just need to be wrapped and put under the tree! I don't like to fight last minute shopping crowds, so we were better prepared this year, shopping a little in advance. I can't say I have all my Christmas shopping done, but most of it is. Do ya'll shop early, or wait to the last minute? Some people like the adrenaline rush of shopping on Christmas Eve! I would only be in the store if I absolutely couldn't do without the item, on Christmas Eve!
Since I've been inside this afternoon, I decided I'd cook some things. Nothing major, just marinara sauce and tuna dip. I used the leftover pack of cream cheese for the dip and two cans of tuna. I poured in some liquid smoke and stirred real good. I hope it tastes good. It reminds me of the chicken ball I make. I've also been shelling more pecans. I want to have my freezer full as I can afford since we love to eat them sugared with cinnamon. They are delicious! I used the recipe in the Calling All Cooks recipe book. It's the telephone cookbook for Alabama. Ya'll have a great week! Blessings from Bama! (What about that TIDE!)
