    Good morning fellow flamenons! Well it's morning anywho. I started feeling better yesterday, sore throat was easing, then it came back with a vengence last night...*sigh* 4 days off work and the only party I'll be having is a germ party... Maybe I can postpone the new year until next weekend. Klatsch On!

    SOUTHERN for the NEW YEAR Celebration – I produce an indie cooking series called Real Food Real Kitchens and by far my favorite episode was one featuring a woman named Sabrina sharing her families Southern Sunday Dinner. Just today I thought, 'Perfect menu for New Year's Day family gathering.' You can check the episode free on Hulu

    Bon Après-midi Mes Amis! Hoppy New Year to all! Made it home from DE with all parts in tact. Rained like a biotch on the drive from the airport, rained this morning on the way to a hair appointment, slipped while getting into the truck and jammed the bejesus out of my big toe. Nothing but steel-toed stilettos for a week. Nothing broken, but I can't stop on a dime for a while. ^_^

    As the proctologist said to the constipated patient, "This too shall pass."

    Good afternoon, all, from the cold snowy northeast. The snow started in earnest around noon, and has been coming down steadily ever since. I just got my new integrated modem set up, so that was my plan for today. Can't go out...I'll probably read.

      At least with it being a weekend, more people should be home to participate in the "Car Rodeo"...:)

      • mary shannon

        Oh yes, just what I need, more idiots getting in the way.

        Todays adventure was seeing a sheriff car, multiple fire vehicles, elec co and plumbing truck next door (on the other side). The woman who hasn't been home in a year came back and found her home flooded. Luckily nothing made it to my side.

          Find your ice skates and go next door. Nothing better than an inside ice rink. :))

        Just took the girls out and let them chase each other around in the snow, should tire them out for a bit.

        I also baked bread but it didn't rise very much, we'll see how it tastes.

    Good morning all from a warm and balmy Denver. We are enjoying 14 degrees right now, but we're lucky considering that the northeast is getting ready to get pounded again.

    How's everyone doing today?

        Sure! Since hubs doesn't really care for anything I cook...he would rather have mac n cheese or pizza... *sigh*

        • JBJingles_from the casa@RH

          Actually that sounds pretty good, but too much like a Sunday dinner. SirB, we will do some pierogies (sp) for hubs Pollak roots, and he has to have herring for good luck (yuk). And for my love of all things bacon....some bacon wrapped shrimps stuffed with pepper jack cheese. :)

      Gotta do something with cabbage for good luck, prosperity and all that jazz. Not sure the real meaning, but just our family tradition.

      If I don't talk to the crew before then, I hope everyone has a Hap Hap Happy New Year! Thank you Kat and SLT for another year of putting up with us on the Klatch.

    I have to check... but we got about 6" of snow, with more expected over the weekend, then a dry cold blast. Wow... it's actually winter....

    How's everyone today?

    I just saw a Facebook post that our old friend, AngryBabyKitty, lost her dog last night, it was hit by a car after getting away from the person walking it. Very sad.

    December 28, 2012 at 11:47 am |

      I am so sorry to hear this :,-(

    Good morning and Happy Friday! Pretty chilly here, too, but not as cold as Denver, we're about 26 with wind chills bringing it down to 21. More snow and yuck expected here over the weekend, and that doesn't count the Giants game. :-(

    Last evening's big excitement here was someone (by accident or not) set a dumpster on fire. With all of the holiday wrappings in there, that thing lit up! Since this is a good, safe area, despite the idiots, I have to presume someone threw in fireplace ashes or a cigarette, took the fire dept about an hour to put it out and make sure there were no flare ups. Fun, fun.

    Have a nice Friday, all.

    Morning. I feel like the grandma that got run over by the reindeer...had a slight sore throat and headache yesterday, which worsened overnight...ugh. Oh and looks like I started a fire storm over on the 6 must haves yesterday, geez, I'll stop trying to be funny as these people have no sense of humor!! Happy Friday!

    Good morning all, from a chilly Denver. 9 degrees this morning, but at least it is a sort-of long weekend.

    Anyone have any fun plans for the weekend?
