A post from my iPod Touch

I got a wonderful iPod for Christmas. It's the iPod Touch and allows me to post to my RouxBDoo Blog. It is time consuming with my big-ass fingers, but It's nice to know I can use it for that purpose.

I hope everyone had a great holiday

Sorry for not posting sooner!

Well, it's Christmas Eve and I haven't been able to post hardly anything. I have been swamped at work and have been out of the country for most of the month. I just returned home and am going to bed. I have to run out in the morning and do some last minute shopping, little bits and candy-making supplies.

I am making Pralines tomorrow for Christmas, it will be my first time, wish me luck. I will try and post something tomorrow before the big day. Love to all my friends reading this. Be back soon. Until I get a picture of this year's tree, here's last year's.

Thanksgiving onboard the MS Fantasy

What a great meal Chef Jorg Schneider and Sous Chef Martin Miles made for the Staff and Crew on the ship last week. Not to mention the 110 turkeys they made for the guests. They fixed about 12 for the staff and crew and they were the best I've eaten. Chef also made a HUGE pumpkin Pie for the crew. They measured out the oven and had a metal disk made to the specifications to create the largest pumpkin pie they could fit in it.

I helped in the staff dining room to carve the 4 turkeys we went through. These had been de-boned and expertly roasted by Chef Martin. Brown and crispy on the outside and moist and flavorful on the inside. I even enjoyed the dark meat, which I usually avoid. It was a great Thanksgiving on the ship, and I truly have a lot to be thankful for. Having a job for starters! I am also thankful for my two friends Chef Jorg and Chef Martin, they are truly remarkable. I am pictured with Master Chef Jorg Schneider.

Getting ready for Christmas!
