Christmas Again

We went to my daughter's house for "Christmas" last night.  She was at her husband's family this year over the actual Holiday.  She made an unbelievable dinner for us. Braised short ribs were accompanied by roasted butternut squash, green beans and potatoes. My daughter is an excellent cook.  She made a couple of apple pies for dessert along with a red velvet trifle. After stuffing ourselves silly for the third time in a week, we opened our gifts. After dinner the boys all retired to my son-in-law's man cave where we played some pool and watched some hockey on the big screen.  The wife and daughter washed the dishes while all of the men played.

I can live with that.

What's wrong with this picture? And it's the same picture all over the world.

Nothing is wrong with that picture Rita. Was that the correct answer?

Rita--

For the record -- I do 90%+ of the grocery shopping 99% of the cooking and 99% of the kitchen clean up.

I also help with the dusting/sweeping, etc. About the only thing I do not help with (other than towels and occasionally underwear) is the laundry. That is because the wife does not like the way I do it.

Now Ed, Joe just set the bar. Whatcha got?

And yes, I knew you did most of the cooking Joe because I normally finish reading your posts hungry. My brother also does most of the cooking.

My perfect days usually involve spending it in the kitchen. The worst day would be cleaning the bathrooms.
