I hope everyone got the toys they wanted, and I hope all of our holiday food experiments go well. I wish everyone perfectly cooked ham, good drinks, and good times. Dave

Took the white chocolate banana cream pies over to my friend's place on Saturday and everyone loved them. I also made the garlic mashed potatoes and the gravy to go with the turkey he roasted. He had also planned to roast a fresh ham (i.e. leg of pork), but it wasn't thawed out enough, so we saved that for Sunday.

On Christmas day, we cooked three Barbary (Muscovy) ducks that had been raised by one of the locals, and a missionary (who works teaches and provides food in a nearby village) brought two girls over to learn how to make stuffing. Once that was done and the ducks and stuffing were in the oven, they all returned to the village to wait. When it was all done, we took the ducks (and extra pans of stuffing) out of the oven and put in the thawed pork leg for that night. We loaded the ducks and stuffing into the truck and took them to a small church in that village where we met up with that missionary, who had cooked some mashed potatoes and some macaroni and cheese. In our own, Christmas (though certainly not miraculous) version of the "loaves and fishes," we portioned that out so that it managed to feed (though with very small portions) six adults and 69 orphans - 75 people!

What a great Christmas day!

Sounds awesome Labs!  What a wonderful Christmas.  Our church fed 24 homeless on Christmas Eve, that was joyful enough.  69 orphans must have been very heart warming.  Keep up the great works!
