Almost Here

 By that I mean Christmas is almost here. I’m sending this out before my regular Thursday blog day because I’m pretty certain Christmas Eve will find you busy with family, last minute shopping, and cooking.
I’ve had a bit of PR recently and want to announce winners from both events. On Karen’s Killer Book Bench, Karen Docter’s blog, we’ve got two winners: Glenda Martillotti received an e-copy of TAINTED and Crystal Stewart received a $10 GC from Starbucks.
From the Romance In Her Prime Facebook event we’ve got three winners.: Bridget Hickey received an e-copy of TAINTED, Wendy Faulkner received an e-copy of TRUTH BE TOLD, and Dianne McIntosh got the $10 Starbucks GC. I hope you all enjoy your gifts, and I really appreciate all the folks who stopped by Karen’s Killer Book Bench blog and the folks who came to Lisa Salvary’s RIHP Facebook event. I think we all had a good time.
Feb. 8, I’ll be back at Karen’s with another book. More info as we get closer to that time.
We are Christmasing alone this year—just Bob, me and Charley, the dog. But we’ll check in with the kids and grands via Zoom or Facetime. I’m making an apple cake for the family. (It’s too yummy to keep it all here. I’ve made it once before recently and it was not pretty what I did with that cake. LOL) And for our Christmas day meal, I’m making a Shepherd’s Pie.
Charley loves his fireplace.
My granddaughter Sarah introduced me to this dish when she took a cooking class summer before last. I picked up a couple of times a week and so got to sample the fruits of their labor. She had made Shepherd’s Pie as small muffins. It was yummy. In cleaning out my recipe file consolidating with my mother’s, I found the recipe. I’m making it as a more of a casserole because I don’t have muffin tins anymore. One of the losses of downsizing, but I wouldn’t use one often, so it’s really not a big loss. I’ll be sure to take pictures and share how it turns out.
