Those clouds are so beautiful against that bright blue sky. I have always loved clouds. That sounds like a lovely Christmas, moving at your own pace, enjoying the sunshine.


I am glad your Christmas day was peaceful.. Mine was, too.


Kat - it's funny how my Christmas has changed. When the kids were home it was always the same...same food, same way to open gifts, same traditions, always. Then the girls got married and we had to start sharing them with their in-laws, then Cindra moved away and wasn't always home for Christmas, then I got married and it really changed. Tried to blend the two families the first year - but these were grown kids with nothing in common. Then tried to have Christmas twice, once with each family - same day. And now of course, we've done this the last three years. Can't believe how different it is. Makes me wonder how it'll be in the next few years! :)


Quilly-Sister, nice you had a little family there and had a good day. Peaceful is what we look for anymore - today is our 5th anniversary and do you think we're going out to party tonight? Not. We went all the way to Tucson today to eat, see Good Shepherd and enjoy Starbucks. Now we're in for the night!


I'm so glad you had a nice Christmas-but I'm green with envy at your weather!


That sky is amazing.

You had a blue sky? Jealous!


Janet - thanks, glad you had a merry one, too. I DO love the weather here, am so spoiled!

Nessa - I think so, too. It's just one more thing I love about Arizona.

Mal Snay - the grass is always greener, isn't it? :)


I love those pictures.


Happy Anniversary Jackie and T! And many, many, happy more! I love you.


Silver - thanks. But I didn't really do the clouds justice...I don't know if I'll ever learn to use my camera. :)

Quilly-Sister - thank you. Love you, too.

Your cloud photos are lovely, Jackie, especially the one with the sunshine breaking through. Glad you had a good Christmas, and I'd love to know how to make an oven omelet.


Velvet, thanks, wish I could take pics that look like what I see!

I don't HAVE a recipe for the oven omelette. I can tell you what I do. I spray the bottom of pie pans or 9x13 pan, and lay slices of cheddar cheese, two deep to cover the bottom, or at least 1/4 inch thick if it's shredded. I fry some bacon or sausage links, and while they cool, chop up onion, green pepper, mushrooms, and sometimes - tomato. Then chop the links or crumble the bacon. I whip about 5 eggs for one piepan, or about a dozen for a 9x13 pan, with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Then I pour in some milk (I don't know! maybe 1/4 cup for piepan and 1/2 cup for 9/13?), and a large dollop of either steak sauce, worchestshire sauce, 57 sauce - anything! Pour everything into the pan with the meat and all the chopped stuff, and put in 375 degree oven. After it's cooked for somewhere between 20 and 30 minutes, I pull the edges (which have set) toward the middle, and cook it another 15 to 30 minutes, at least, until it's done in the center.

There are probably alot of recipes online if you look under quiches or oven breakfasts - it's basically a quiche with no crust! And I know there are some recipes that use hashbrowns for a crust, or white bread, and they've always sounded good.

We've always eaten this for Christmas breakfast...and I'll eat leftovers cold!
