.. jingle bells....jingle bells......















look, Mom...new snow..... yipee?

no?....











okay then, lets make the best of it....how 'bout some Christmas baking? Remember when I was busy making those great tasting Eggnog loaves? Well, this seems the perfect time to unwrap one. On the weekend we had our cute little summer birdie plates out there on the patio set.... with cheese and crackers...a bottle of light white...and...sun...but, today.... well, sitting outside is not an option.......
Just a quick nip out for a photo.... windy, cool and only -7 C..... brrrr......






















for supper last night, I was thinking....what can I make that is golden... something tropical.... hmmmmm...
I crushed some Stoned Wheat Thins; mixed them with long flake cocoanut;sprinkled in cinnamon, nutmeg and a bit of turmeric.....coated two Tilapia filets with plain yogurt and dredged them in the crumbs. Slid them into the pan where a tiny bit of oil and butter were bubbling. A good scraping of freshly ground peppercorns on top...and.... not many minutes later...we had flakey, golden fish waiting for a quick little sauce. Gently sauteed onions in the same pan...a splosh of Louie Latour to deglaze ....seeing as that was what we were toasting the day with.... toss in a spoonful of apricot jam... stir and bubble for another minute... et voila !..... supper fit for the most discerning palate..... oh, and it was yummy indeed.











Poor Mr. BV can't taste anything... the antibiotics and steroids have killed his taste buds...once again.... he has a major sinus infection and bronchitis....has been coughing horribly for weeks .... poor guy. Hopefully this kicks in soon...his ribs are pretty painful now.... he holds an arm tightly against them every time he coughs. Well, at least he finally went to the doctor. One can only suggest it so many times til one is accused of being the dreaded "nag"... and besides...trying to force somebody to do something is impossible. Does leading the horse to water spring to mind?

I wish you would could those for me, ha! I'm always amazed to read what people think up to cook, I'm no unimaginative when it comes to cooking. Snow, wow...

hope your guy gets better soon.

Your supper sounds scrumptious!
Poor Mr. Vee, sinus infections are so yucky and hard to get rid of. I used to have them frequently until we moved to FL. Now I rarely get them. I hope your honey is feeling better soon.
