And We Didn’t Even Have Turkey!

Christmas was quiet and peaceful in our home.  OC and I each spent the whole day kicked back and casual.  He watched sports on TV, I read and played video games.

We had a simple Christmas meal for just the two of us.  I roasted a chicken, made mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and steamed asparagus.   We ate, we talked, we laughed.  It was a mellow meal.  Afterward I cleaned the dishes and packed us each a lunch of leftovers for today.  Then I grabbed my book again.

About 35 minutes later OC woke me to tell me that the pie had cooled, and did I want a slice?  “Mmm-ff, mm-ff,” I mumbled.  “With ice cream.”  Right about then I think warm apple pie was the only thing that could have woken me!  What a lovely, restful day — and without tryptophan!
