    Chicken enchiladas, guacamole salad, tostado chips, and ''empanadas'' for dessert. Daughter was cooking. Empanadas are a Mexican pastry, usually a sweetened oumpkin filler with anise seed for flavor. Filling is sealed in a tortilla like pie crust and baked. Much better than pumokin pie. She also tried making some with apple and peach filling. Those were good, but the pumpkin ones were the best.

    Last night we also had grilled cheese.
    It is the old stand-by when my wife works later.
    Had a nice cucumber and onion salad with it.
    Our dessert was Crispy Crunch ice cream bars.

    God bless!!

    Bougtht ones that night. We were killing ourselves trying to get all the Xmas cookies and desserts made. Daughter and wife just had to make alot to give away. Sugar cookieas, pan de polvo, rum flavored balls, pumpkin balls, fudge, peanut brittle, pineapple upside down cake, acd flan cake. Daughter also had to do more at her m in law's place.

    And for dinners, she made roast turkeys at both places at Xmas and prime rib roasts. Her b-day was the 21st, so she and the hubby deep fried shrimp, fish, fries, and hush puppies. They did another fish fry over the weekend cause the hubby's sister and family came from Houston to visit and we got a pan full of that. And they decided to brine and deep fry a turkey while they had the deep fryer going to have it ready for New Year's.

    I still have turkey and smoked ham from Thanksgiving. Don't want no more. Told them to feed their friends. Now they are talking about tamales also and I do most of the mixing and prep for that. NO, I think I've had enough for this year.
