Poor John, He would never make it over here with that order.  OR we over there.. When we visited Europe, I just pointed at other peoples food. And used a language guide (which was not very helpful) Can go a good 2 hours drive and the language changes a bit and as we went further, changed even more.. But, beautiful over there.. cobble stone roads, cottages, pubs, the history.  :-)

Pizzelle are very thin Lacey cookies, anise flavored traditionally made in a press. 

Pfefferneusseare a soft spicy German cookie usually with a glazed icing shell or powdered sugar. Kind of sort of like gingerbread.

I found a blackberry liquorice cordial at the local international market. Tasty stuff.

On the gravy ring saga, even over here the younger generation is starting to know them as donuts, My  Dad when in for a coffee and asked the young girl for coffee and a gravy ring! she looked at him as if he had 2 heads and replied we don,t sell gravy rings. he replied they are right behind you! Had to laugh when she said so you want a donut!

Yup, those youngsters who think that they know it all are usually pretty short in the brain Department. If they can't touch a button on their cell phone they don't have a clue.

Not sure if that's a blessing or a curse.  But I am always amazed at the simple things  (like counting back change when you make a cash purchase. )  i gave a young girl $1.02 for a $.97 purchase. She actually spent 2 or 3 minutes staring into space to figure out she owed me a nickel change. I wonder how some graduate from high school. 😨

Giving change reminds me of a shop my Mum took me to for shoes, they had an air pipe system for the money. at the tile the girl would take the money put it in a tube with the tag of the purchase. it was put into the pipe which sucked it away to the main office. they took the money and did the same back with the change. Now try telling that to the younger ones lol

That's really good!! I am slowly getting on and feeling a bit better. Stella thinks she runs my life (hmmm can I borrow your stick and nail??) But I will get her under control. My big issue is figuring what is going to give me problems on a particular day: i.e. will it be Stella, or my RA, or the poly myalgia rheumatica, or my glucose numbers. Or all of the above all at once.  Marcie is always telling me how strong ostomates are, and she is right. We have to be strong. Anyway, Geseende Kersfees, julle!!

Hi, Eric!!!  I have a terrible weakness for clementines (tangerines, Halos, Mandarins, whatever you call them) and gobble them up like candy!!!  I always eat two, at least once a day -- sometimes two times a day!  Can't keep my hands off them!!!

I used to be quite the Christmas cookie baker and used to make TONS and TONS of cookies, but am not going to do that this year.  Am going to give the neighbors peanut brittle.  We like it around here and I'm hoping the neighbors don't have a peanut allergy.

Merry Christmas, all!

We've been buying them by the case (multiple cases, in fact) and probably eat 4 a day. My son is eating at least 6 a day! 😂😂 

They are very cheap right now, so I don't mind splurging a bit on them 😀

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

Eric, I always try to eat at least 5 fruits and 5 veggies a day, and I have to admit that the clementines are my all-time favorite!  Am thrilled silly your son loves them, too!!!  Get kids hooked on fruits and veggies early and they'll love them all their lives.  Have been scouring the grocery ads looking for a sale on them.  They've been about $4 for a 3-pound bag, but the price should go down as we get further into the season for them; although I don't really care what they cost -- I'm still going to buy them!!!!

Best wishes!!!!

Mykirbyroo ah ha I finally see your name . Good Morning Ann easy for me to remember its my daughters middle name . Oh and the peanut brittle my Mom used to make that it would never last to long . Wonder if that's a mid west thing ? She also used to make chocolate covered cherries and divinity with or without walnuts I preferred without . And sugar cookies with powdered sugar frosting we would all set around and frost them and of course if one just happened to break we would have to eat it !!!!

Good afternoon, Robert.  (It's 5 after 12 here.  Time for lunch.)  My mother (God bless her!) used to bake and bake and bake every Christmas.  She'd make all kinds of cookies and the cut-outs were our favorites.  She'd frost them and put sprinkles, little cinnamon candies, nonpariels, and they were so pretty and colorful.  She'd get out the cookie press and make lots of different shapes with sprinkles on top.  Us 4 kids would get home from school, get a big glass of milk and sit at the kitchen table and just GOBBLE up the cookies!!!!!  SO GOOD!!!!

After my folks retired and moved to the Sarasota/Bradenton area in Florida, us kids would all go to Florida for Christmas.  I remember one Christmas, Ma made chocolate chip cookies.  She must have baked for two days because she had Tupperware containers chock FULL of cookies.  There were 4 gallons of milk in the fridge, and when we descended on the house en masse, the milk and cookies disappeared while we all sat around the kitchen table and yakked.  Good times!!!  Great memories!!!!!!!

Your mother had the touch to make divinity.  Ma never made it, but I sure did enjoy it when I was offered some.  It melts - literally MELTS - in your mouth.  I like it without nuts, too!  Much, much better!!!!

Oh, the Christmas memories are all flooding back!!!!  My Dad's favorite holiday!  He'd go nuts for Christmas!!!  Always worked a TON of overtime between Labor Day and Thanksgiving so us kids would have a HUGE Christmas.  Every year, he'd set up the tripod and take home movies with an 8mm movie camera of us opening our loot.  We've put the movies on DVD now and I still watch them every Christmas.  Lots of years of Christmases to choose from!!!

Merry Christmas!!!!
