Don't mind Owly-he's just grumpy because we stuck him in the window wearing a Santa hat.
I let the boys talk me into experimenting with some of the potato pancakes. Remember how KFC was selling sandwiches that didn't have bread, but used two pieces of fried chicken instead? I took that idea and made vegetarian Reuben sandwiches between two potato pancakes. I used a "Tofurky" brand lunchmeat to stand-in for the corned beef, and then added sauerkraut, cheese, and French dressing. They both enjoyed it (I don't get along with fried food, so I sat this one out) and thought I should do it again next year. I had to wrap the sandwiches in greaseproof paper otherwise they'd be too messy to handle, but I'll bet I could sell these for a few dollars each at the Farmer's Market. I really ought to look into it. Unfortunately, they scarfed them down so quick I only had plain potato pancakes to photograph-but I'm sure you get the idea.
There aren't that many opportunities to wear a hat like this during the year, so I try to get as much wear as possible during December. That's one damn festive hat.

I keep forgetting that beaded jackets are heavy. By the end of the day, I really feel like I've had a workout.
I hope you had a nice weekend, and that the week ahead treats you well. If all else fails, wear a silly hat-it will make you feel better.
