You may be referring to the song...but he is a cradle robber and FTR Pat was often referred to as the same with me; although, I believe the difference is less between Alex and Kathleen.

In Pat's case he also had to learn to rock the cradle again....

I'm thinking Santa's too busy with chores or contributing so many off-topic posts to other on-topic threads that this thread is being ignored, so.........

Actually, Santa (Alex) is most likely busy in the kitchen with all of those treats, cookies, etc. plus the 12 days of Christmas meals, plus all the meal planning and cooking between Christmas and New Years; and then that big New Years Eve bash and the dinner the following day that he has no time to read the bb. He hardly has time to do all the shopping.

Let's hope Mrs. Claus is good at wrapping, tree trimming, stuffing Santa's pack and sleigh, caring for the reindeer, etc. or it will never all get done in time.

At this rate we will be lucky to make 1,925 or 1,950 by the end of the year.

What number are we aiming for? I've been told often that I can't stay focused on any one subject!

You're not the only one off until 01/07/08....my kids seem to have expensive, practical, as in graduate school tuition, and electronic (IPhone, dream on) on their lists....I wish I could plead snowed in!!!

The problem with baking....I love it, but I also get to do the clean-up while everyone else enjoys the goods.

And for those of you that can't decide if you're talking or you're writing and blaming non-focus on that dilemma; I can both read and hear the text, so that's not a legitimate excuse.

We'd really have to put some effort into it --- can we make 2,000? What's the other high post thread at now?

Off to the bank -- more House Beautiful improvements.....

The 'post a picture' thread is only at 1,765; we passed them a month ago. 2,000 will be a piece of that cake you're not baking.

Shows you how often I read that thread since I didn't even know which one to look for and I was too lazy to go read back on this thread to figure it out.

You're correct; the only cake I bake at Christmas is "fruit" cake, the rest is cookies and fudge; my own version of fc, which I prefer to store bought, canned, beautifully wrapped, stored forever, hard as a rock, that you could use for several hockey pucks or door stops. I either use a from scratch recipe or the shared one made from others starter batch and add to it.

Sorry, the closest I can come to that is "Rosemary's Baby," and I didn't take notes. I prefer my brownies without "Mary Jane."

Brussels Sprouts may not be the worst of veggies, but they are pretty bad and are always served with the big turkey dinners

Two recipes that make them more palatable:

With bacon and onions:

Prepare and par-boil them, chill and set aside.

Then 6 or 7 minutes before serving sort of stir-fry them with chopped onions and bacon chunks.

On the other way, do the same prep, and a few minutes before serving with very little water in the pot pour in bar scotch ( I use Bell's) and a little sugar and kind of stir-fry them.

This year I'm going to use a single malt - Bowmores is rather smokey and should be real good.

Of course, one can do a few sips to make sure it is smokey enough.
