Happy Holidays!

Though I constantly read LJ on the iPad, it's not as easy to post from there so I fired up my dinky little Chromebook to check in and say hi and give an early Merry Xmas and a late Happy Solstice.

I'm hoping that this evening that Veri and I can go drive around and look at holiday lights for some cheer. We did go to Target this morning but she's hobbling around since she broke the crap out of her pinky toe yesterday. As if she doesn't have enough to deal with since she's the primary caretaker for her elderly parents who aren't in the best of shape.

I was good and actually made it to the local library and checked out three vegan cookbooks and two cozy mysteries. If I find a lot of recipies that I like in any of the books, then I'll invest in buying used ones online but at least I can check them out thoroughly before I decide whether to do that. I hadn't been to the library in so long that my membership (they make you renew every three years) expired several months ago. I also had to buy a new card for $1 since I couldn't find mine at home anywhere.

One of the things I am investing in to help make the transition to vegan cooking easier and tasty is an air fryer. On a whim recently I looked online and found what looked like a great deal of $29.99 for one that was originally $49.99. I ordered it and found out not long after that it was a very good sale and very popular. A few days after ordering, I was informed that it was backordered and Target sent me an email asking if I still wanted to wait. I didn't figure I was in a huge hurry so I indicated I was fine with a delay. Well evidently this thing had some sort of holiday delivery guarantee and another day or two later they emailed again that they were so sorry but they were going to miss the deadline and sent me a $5 gift card for my trouble. Woo hoo! I thought as long as it's not going to be weeks and weeks, I'm fine waiting. Well last night I got an email that the air fryer might actually show up on the 26th. What a deal!

In goofy goings on at home, JonJon is being harassed by a squirrel at the kitchen window and it is the FUNNIEST thing.

Hopefully you find some good recipes in your library books! Recipe books are so hard - I usually end up with one good recipe that I like, from a whole book.

I've mostly switched to looking for recipes online these days - and when I find one I like, I copy it into my account at www.pepperplate.com in case the site disappears on me (although I realize if *pepperplate* disappears, I'm in trouble, LOL)

Yay for great deals! Let us know how you like the air fryer. I hope Veri's pinky toe gets better soon

And brave Jon-Jon should be careful. That squirrel might be Foamy.
