Christmas is Almost Here!

It looks like we will have a white Christmas – unless tomorrow’s rain melts the snow that we have on the ground today.  We have a few inches on the ground and snow is falling now.  Growing up – a green Christmas was rare.  It seems for the last ten years or so – a green Christmas has been standard.  Last year, Christmas Day was in the 60s!  I remember the neighbor’s kids running down the street barefoot.

We have been having arctic weather so the snow today is very fluffy.  I am happy that it is a Saturday – so I don’t have to be in a hurry to go anywhere.  I will be leaving my house late morning to go to my mom’s.  If the snow is very light and fluffy – I may not need the snowblower.  I hate shoveling – but if it is only a few fluffy inches – I can just push it away easily which is easier than maneuvering the heavy snowblower.

I only have a couple quick gifts to pick up and my Christmas shopping is finished!  Last night, I was wrapping presents.

Food has been EVERYWHERE!  I am trying to control my eating.  I am chubby enough.  At our potluck at work this week, a woman in my department brought in her onion pie.  It is so good.  Here is the recipe.

Caroline’s Vidalia Onion Pie
1 cup Ritz crackers, crumbled fine
1/2 stick butter, melted
2 cups Vidalia onions, diced
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 T. butter (for sauteing onions)
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray bottom of pie plate with Crisco nonstick spray (optional). Mix cracker crumbs with 1/2 stick butter and press into bottom of pie plate. Saute onions in 1 T. butter until translucent, not brown. Spoon into pie plate. Beat eags and milk with salt; pour over onions. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 30 minutes or until knife comes out clean.

Enjoy your Week!  Christmas is in 8 days!
