Living vicariously! My husband announced earlier this week that he wants to go out to eat Christmas day, which is FINE with me! I'm cooking frog legs with a friend, lots of crawfish, and Easter dinner entrées for our March/April issue, so not having to pull together a Christmas meal is not a hardship! We've not yet decided where we want to go eat, but I'd better get on that and get a reservation in place.
So- tell me what you're planning to make over the holiday season. I'll be over here quietly planning my New Year's Day menu.
Here's my PSA for the week- make sure your pets are microchipped, and that the chip is registered to you with current contact information. Earlier this week a neighbor flagged me down; while walking her dog she'd heard a cat in distress underneath a car. We finally coaxed it out; a young cat, healthy, sweet, terrified. I took it to a local vet only to discover that, while chipped, the chip wasn't registered. Through pure luck, I put up fliers and the panicked owner saw one so all is well that ends well. The owners had done the right thing in having the cat chipped, but didn't know the vet did not handle the registration process. They also didn't realize that cats can slip through astounding tiny cracks; they'd left a window open just a bit and the beast pushed the screen out. So put that on your end-of-year checklist! Take care of your fur-babies.
There are plenty of holiday festivities happening around the state this weekend, with the weather slated for sunny and warm on Saturday. Put off your last-minute shopping for a couple more days and get out and be a tourist. See our events calendar below for planning purposes.
Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind. Also, keep in mind that food banks struggle this time of year; consider making a donation if at all possible.
