my winter vacation

my bestie and her husband leave today, back to the cold wilds of boston. I am filled with much sadness that they are leaving, tho we had a great time this week. What did we do?

All in all, a good week. Now, back to work. *sigh*

happy chanumasalia, everyone

we basked in the glow of the led lights on the ficus tree and opened presents.  Here we are posing with our pressies:

We made mince pies, and bagels, and challah french toast.  Then we napped. For a long time.  We went to a traditional christmas dinner of chinese food, and we are off to the movies.  Happy Chanumasalia!

in a bowl, combine beef, egg, rice, onion, cinnamon, coriander, red
pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. form into small meatballs.

boil. add meatballs to pot. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover, cook until meatballs are done.
