2017

I guess it's time to look back and see what projects were completed in 2017.  I am still in shock that the Y2K question was 18 years ago.  So hard to understand the passing of time, when some incidents seem like yesterday, and others decades ago.  I guess that depends on our emotional attachment to them.
 
I received a card and coaster from Krissy.  The card is Lori's (Notforgotten Farm) and will be kept for display.  Love it. 
The coaster's line is something I have been considering.  Watching carbs works, but when I slip, it's more like falling off a moving train.  What did I get from my family?  A pound box of melt-aways which after a week, have mysteriously disappeared and left behind little brown paper cups.  Lots of them.  All empty.  How could this be?   
 
 I wrote to thank Krissy and informed her that the laugh-your-ass off diet does not work, unless you count bladder leakage as a pound.
 
Since I am now sick either from the shopping day or the sadists at therapy, I have cancelled our New Year's Day slider fest.  Tomorrow we will (hopefully) go to Carole's and try the cranberry meatballs, candy bacon, and all the other goodies she has prepared.  All I am to bring is the "funeral" potatoes.  Hate that name.  LOVE those fricking potatoes.  If I am not up to it, Mark already has a list of what to put in the box I am sending for my pleasure.
 
Have a safe and happy new year!

Oh Marly, as always your writing is the best, that was a great post...you make me LOL and boooy can I relate!
Thanks for posting the link for the Funeral Potatoes recipe, as I was going to ask as well...you had me at potatoes, but then I saw the word "cheese" in the link and went gaga. <3
Hope that you are feeling better soon, and sending wishes for a beautiful New Year to you and yours.
Hugs

Sorry that you are unwell. I hope you get better quickly. You need to rename those potatoes. If you love them so much why deal with crappy name. Happy New Year!

Feel better soon. I have been battling a cold for over a week. Not a bad one but just enough to feel tired and lousy.
Happy, happy new year.
(And I, too, was going to ask about the funeral potatoes.!)

Oh, the funeral potatoes are similar to what I make except that I don't use the shredded hash browns (use the O'Brien potatoes) and use cream of celery soup instead. So yummy!

Well my friend, sorry you are not feeling up to snuff. Seems to be happening to everyone this winter, no end of ailments. Want to wish you a very Happy and improving Health New Year. That wasn't grammatically correct, but you get the point! Blessings for 2018!

Marly: You always put a smile on my face with your comments, you have a great sense of humor.
I am not sure if the laugh your ass off diet would work for anyone, giggles.
I have never heard of funeral potatoes, what the heck are they? just curious.
I hope you are feeling better soon.
Chocolate oh yeah.

Happy New Year
Catherine
