First off, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Blessed Be. So far I've gotten just about everything I wanted or needed for Christmas. Dinner is still cooking as I type this, but I'm already pouting. The Guy and I decided on a pineapple and Coke glazed ham for dinner... hey I followed the turkey's suggestion this time!
However, the recipe never said that you needed to add water, or warned that the coke and pineapple would caramelize, removing all moisture from the surrounding enclosed roasting pan. Guess we should have remembered that... oops. Caught it about an hour into cooking. Just charred the outside edges and turned the pineapple into charcoal. Ah well, live, learn, and remember what happens when sugar and heat are applied. The rest of the ham is fine, the potatoes are almost ready to be mashed, the crescent rolls should be coming out of the oven soon, the sweet potatoes are done, and the pie is ready to be cut.
My favorite gift this year has to be the the crochetted shawl that my mother-in-law gave me, or the fingerless gloves she made for me. The Guy got a Horde Scarf, which he grinned over... maybe I can talk him back into playing for a bit? We shall see.
In WoW related news, my newest hunter horde side over on Moon Guard got Dishu the level 13 Cheetah last night. I couldn't have done it alone. I got her with the help of my guild leader, who came over on his Shaman, dropped a healing totem for me and took out the cubs as they spawned. Thank you again Mysthowl! Now I just need to come up with a name for her. I think that was possibly the best present I could have gotten, help when I needed it. ^_^
Thanks again to Bloodriver for being an awesome guild to run with Horde Side, and League of Shadows Alliance Side when I don't want to deal with Deathwing for a bit.
Have a safe and happy holiday, and a happy new year. I'll see you guys later, because the potatoes are done, and its time to eat. Bye!
