It’s been a busy and hectic couple of months for the Schmautzhaus and Yes!Chef! and I have not had much time to attend to this poor little blog.  I apologize and promise to do better in the new year.

Deck The Halls Holiday Home Tour Part III and Christmas Cheer

Merry Christmas

and a

Happy Holiday Home tour

elves

I didn’t have time today to make another treat, because I did an elf photo shoot.  They are absolutely the worst kind of subject.  Most of my conversation and instruction went like this:  “Hey!  Stop that and leave him alone.”  “Please look at the camera.”  “Just because your head is pointed at the camera does not mean your eyes can look some place else.”  “Don’t put your arms around his neck.”  “Move your hat out of his face.”  “Stop teasing him”  “Hey!  No fighting.”…

Fried Shrimp and Triple Cooked French Fries
