    I am a super taster - curry powder usually makes me run around shrieking and that is just smelling it as the tin is opened.:eek::wideyed::eek:

    It’s 2:00 on wed here now so we’ll have the turkey tomorrow. Maybe tonight too haha
    I was married for 7 years, divorced with a 2 & 4 year old. No child support. 7 years later met my soul mate, got married 7 months later. His son, 22 just got out of the marines. My son, 30 is a professional golf caddy and caddies for some big names. He ran a golf course for awhile as well. My daughter, 27 just got married to hopefully her soul mate and she works at a church. She runs the school part. 1000 kids and 3000 volunteers. Also does budgets etc. They both live out of state so we don’t see them often.
    Sounds like your family is doing very well. I hope everyone gets along through the holidays. It doesn’t work that way in my family. Having issues with my mother before our trip there in 2 weeks. For some reason she thinks we should spend every waking minute with her and Jeff and I shouldn’t have any time alone. This year we insisted on a hotel so we can have our morning and evening routines and she through a tantrum and told me I hurt her. Guilt trip...of course the last thing I want to do is hurt her but I also want to spend an afternoon or two exploring with my husband. I don’t think that should be too match to ask as we only take one vacation a year. Splitting our time in half seems very reasonable. On top of that she is absolutely clueless about Diabetes and doesn’t even try to understand when I tell her I took my insulin and have to eat. Not in an hour but now. Then she calls me rigid and bossy. She 86 so I TRY, but I only have so much patience. The stress gets to be too much for my bs AND BP.

    OK thanks for letting me rant. I feel better now haha.

    You have a lovely time with your family and a great meal!

    Avocados are cheaper than Brussel Sprouts, taste better as well.

    I avoided sprouts all my life until I found a recipe for sprout soup; it converted me. Just saute some halved sprouts (with or without a chopped onion/garlic) in a little oil, then add stock, bring to the boil then simmer. When you think they're done, just blend the soup and serve. It doesn't taste like sprouts, just a good green vegetable soup. Worth a try.

    I don't eat sprouts any other way, but now I can relish their goodness

    They are about £1 per kg in the UK which I think is 1.75 Australian Dollars.
