Around here, we've been trying to send 2007 off with a bang.
Saturday night, we went to a Washington Wizards game - The Boy's Christmas present to his Pop-pop (my dad). The week before Christmas, I got an e-mail advertising $10 seats. Yup, that's right, we could touch the ceiling! But we had fun. The Boy was immensely entertained, Pop-pop had his snacks and beer brought right to him, and the Wizards won the game. I will be taking The Boy to another one soon - right now he's working on getting his own dad to take him this coming weekend, when kids tickets are $5.00 when you purchase an adult ticket to go with it. It may sound like we're being cheapskates, but when you consider that "regular" priced tickets go from $2500 to $45, deals are much-needed! Hopefully his dad will think it's a good idea, and they can get decent seats (somewhere not 200 rows above the floor for about $85.
Then, last night we had a gift-dinner. Turducken. Ever heard of it? Quite an interesting concept. My sister's been dying to try it, and she's the queen of the mail-order gourmet foods, so she sent this as a gift this holiday. Apparently, it's a chicken stuffed with a duck, and then the whole thing is stuffed inside a turkey. I think maybe it's just a chicken breast stuffed with the duck meat, cause there's only one set of bird bones. You be the judge:
Whatever the story, it was delicious. I felt very guilty eating it, but it was very, very good! Thanks a bunch!! We all loved it. The Boy wasn't too sold, but he's developing issues with meat these days - I think because they're always so well done. The only thing missing was the wine, but you can bet I'll be having some this evening with the BRANDED roast Pop-pop will be serving up!
More tomorrow on the New Year's Resolutions and knitting plans. I still have some thinking and deciding to do on both fronts!!
