My daughter is working, so my sister and I are going to my favorite beach restaurant. Weather permitting, we will sit outside If not we will watch the waves from inside. Either way is fine with me. I do miss the chaos of littles around, but I am grateful for the memories. Merry Christmas everyone!
A beachy Christmas sounds delightful!
I fix tofu for them. I don't make a tofu "turkey" but I marinate cubes of it in ginger/soy sauce/etc then stir fry it & have rice or noodles & lots of good vegetable dishes. I usually have sweet potatoes, broccoli, etc. My husband says he does not want ham nor turkey b/c it makes too many leftovers with just the 2 of us so I may get a couple of good steaks for us. I have Key Lime pie for him for dessert. Vegan brownies for the "kids". I know V likes Key Lime pie. I had bought 2 for the holidays & he has already eaten them both plus a 50 oz pkg of assorted flavors of cheesecake. I need to cut him off. His mother was diabetic.
My brother offered to rent me a house at the beach for a month so I can recuperate from my current problems. It will be a winter beach though. But there are friends to visit & I could get up to New Bern to see the Palatine Papers (several of my ancestors came to NC with the New Bern colonists in 1710). And oysters will be in season. I hear they are over $100 a bushel now but a peck would make me happy without breaking the bank. When there are plenty, I could eat a lot more but it does not take as many if you eat a few hushpuppies with your oysters (& dip the oysters in melted butter & lime juice).
