Went out in the AM and picked up some ca$h for one of Nicki’s gifts. Then stopped on the way back and picked up a gallon of milk for pies and things.
I then pulled out the prime rib to let it come up to room temperature. I then made the lemon pie, it didn’t even need milk. Later I cooked up the vanilla pudding for the banana pie and while it cooled I made some marrange for the Lemon pie, came out quite good.
Nicki got up about noon or so I’d say maybe later. We then opened our presents, nice time and everyone loved the gifts they got, I was a bit worried about the ice cream maker but Nicki does eat a lot of ice cream. Nicki got me another camera which I REALLY love! The Kodak No2A Model C, it’s the aluminum one post 1924 I think, very good condition. Nicki got the ice cream maker, several magazines and stuff for her gun and some ca$h
Got the prime rib into the over @ about 1:30pm and it ended up cooking for about an hour. As it rested I got the rest of the stuff prepared, mashed potatoes, green bean casoral, baby carrots, mac & cheese and ham.
We all ate dinner about 3pm I’d say, everyone left the table very VERY full. Nobody had pie until well after 7pm.
Called up mom & dad a bit later in the day, chatted with them and found out that Gail was expecting us, maybe I wasn’t really clear during Thanksgiving that I didn’t expect to be back for Xmas. Sorry.
