On the Wednesday Before the Eve

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.

Good morning everyone.  It looks like we are in for another warm rainy day here in Brooklyn.  That's okay.  No plans on leaving the house.  Yesterday I made my sauce for my Christmas Eve lasagna and today I have to do the gondulas and marinate the pernil.  Food is always better when the spices have time to mingle.  

As for food, last night we had a simple, but delicious dinner.  

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Boneless breasts
Cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp
Hot Hungarian paprika 1/2:tsp
Garlic powder 1/3 tsp
Onion powder 1/4 tsp
Parsley 1/2 tsp
Salt and pepper 2 tbs
Low salt butter
Lime juice 3 tbs.

Season chicken with spices and saute in butter and lime juice. 

Served with baked potato and corn.

Hopefully the nightmare with Amazon is over. Called them yesterday about the return on the vests because I  got an email today that they were missing an item and were going to charge me if they didn't get it. I called to explain that both were in the same package. I was told that when sending back items each has its own shipping label. Seriously, they are the ones that made the mistake not once, but twice.  Why should I have to run around looking for places to print labels and such.After a sob story I got him to put a notation down and make an exception for me. I say 'hopefully"  because they haven't gotten the package yet.  

Have a good one. 


  1. Hey, I'm making lasagna today too! Having some friends over for dinner tonight.

  2. The Eve is here. I have a busy day ahead, but hope yours (and Christmas to follow) is wonderful.
