    The last Thursday of 2012....#513.

    Well, I am not falling over any cliff, fiscal or otherwise....

    It's been a strange year, filled with ups and downs - glad to see it go, but not as much as any other year.

    So, Let's break out the bubbly and tip a glass to the last few days of 2012...

    DONE!

    Funny you should mention that....just about to go out and get a few bottles of wine.

    Should I get a few of my favorites to stock the bar with?

    Only if you're willing to share ...

    Meanwhile, after a day on rain has dwindled down to drizzly and cool, I'm gonna get a kettle on, especially as I know many of us have been dealing with snow instead. Hot cocoa anyone? Or nice hot chai?

    My neighbor brought us down some brownies, I'll share those with anyone who wants one!

    Alwaysa willing to share. In the meantime I'll get a brie pastry going in the oven (I'll even share my Christmas present!)

    It's been a cold miserable day here. Some hot chocolate with tons of mallows would be lovely. Any Christmas cookies left?

    I'll have a truffle! And some hot cocoa with cinnamon added in!

    On a happy note, in real life my food adventures continue. I worked up my courage and ate a whole (yummy) red pepper yesterday - and had no repercussions whatsoever! Whoo hoo! Something new to cross off the list!

    Lucky you - you can eat more and I can eat less. Several years ago I had a bad reaction after eating a shrimp and crab cake - I broke out into one big itch, but thankfully no breathing issues, and it took a handful of Benadryl to calm it down. Figured I was now allergic to shellfish, and hadn't been brave enough to try again to see if I had another reaction. Until Christmas, that is. We had a buffet dinner this year, and one of things I served was a cold shrimp platter. I ate a few and no reaction - woo-hoo! I ate a few more over the course of the next few days and still no reaction, so last night I decided to finish up what was left - about a dozen of them. BAD MOVE! Within minutes I was one big itch again, and even broke out into a few hives! Thank goodness for Benadryl - and this time I learned my lesson! As much as I love shellfish, I guess they are banned from my diet forever!

    Anyone care to join me for a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup? It's a cold, wet and dreary day and I need some comfort food!

    zTell you what, Pomtzu - just had a marvelously yummy grilled cheese - apple butter (courtesy of Lady's Human) and sharp cheddar on some sourdough bread. I have more of everything, so if anyone wants some, let me know!

    That sounds yummy, Karen - count me in!

    Even tho it's cold, I'm craving a cold drink. I have a pitcher of raspberry green tea in the fridge to share if anyone would like some.

    I'll take you up on that tea, please. We're having a chinook so no need for hot tea today.
