    check out this maple syrup recipe I'm going to make it in the morning:

    http://www.esquire.com/blogs/food-for-men/whiskey-bacon-coffee-syrup-pancakes-recipe-0114

    actually I think the "whiskey-bacon-coffee-syrup" in the url sums it up properly. Not for pancakes though, pancakes are just the lazy mans waffle.

    When I work the holidays people will go to moms and spend the night. When I get off work I go there and they all wake up while moms making breakfast. Nothing fancy pancakes, turkey bacon, eggs, hashbrowns etc.

    I'll more than likely squeeze a nap at moms cause I have another 12 hour over night shift..

    Our big dinner this year will be the 26th, which is when I'm finally off.
    A smaller version of thanksgiving. Turkey, turkey ham, Mexican tamales, green bean casserole, beets, mashed potatoes, candied baby carrots, Turon (Filipino dish) etc etc

    Christmas dinner is actually at my grandparents' place this year, and it's the first time in about 5 years that I'm cooking a thing. Menu consists of turkey, roast beef, and perogies, with carrots, peas, mashed potatoes, sweet potato and turnip on the side. Dessert will be a hodgepodge of pies and cheesecakes. Should have about a frozen family members there for that, so it should be a good time.

    Boxing Day, I'm doing my own turkey dinner, with stuffing, carrots, parsnip and other assorted veggies, followed by more turkey soup on the 27th. Not really expecting anyone over, but I'll eat turkey for days and be happy with it; I'll freeze the meat and toss it in with pasta or casseroles instead of beef.

    New Year's Day is going to be the true test. I want to get a duck and oven roast it, which is something I've never had or cooked before. Any thoughts or suggestions on what to do with it, anyone?

    Merry Christmas, all! Whatever you're doing, whoever you're with, may you be happy, warm, and loved.

    I wanted to try it at xmas but I've been coerced into making pork. :?

    I'll have to make up an excuse to roast a bird soon.

    Baked ham, as far as the eye can see. I've had three different ham dinners so far the last couple of days, and I'm gearing up for one more on Christmas Day here, before I live off the leftovers for a month.

    Ham, potatoes, stuffing, you know, all the fixin's!

    Ham is a forbidden word in my house though, because this 'Ham' thinks we're talking about her and gets all up in our business.
