Last night we went to my uncle’s for Christmas dinner. Growing up, Gamma used to make pork tenderloins with all the fixins. After my Mom and Grandpa died, Gamma eventually stopped making the tenderloin dinner. My uncle and aunt made it at their house in 2007. The only reason I remember that was it was my last Christmas sighted and I was working at the doctor’s office. I remember being exhausted since we worked a half day that day. B didn’t go at all because he worked a full day that day, so he had never had the tenderloin dinner.
This year my uncle and his new wife decided to make the tenderloin dinner. Gamma and I had been excited ever since we heard about it!
Because my uncle’s house has a very open floor plan, Jayden had to stay on duty by my side the entire time. I don’t know the house well and there’s nothing to navigate with since it’s so open. Jayden did great, even stopping at the area carpets to let me know they were there, and where the concrete met dirt when I took him outside. I think he wondered why all the people he knows were at this strange building and especially why he was on duty the whole time. He’s never on duty at Gamma’s house, since I know it so well.
It was a great night and the food was delicious! It was the ultimate comfort food. Even B, the picky eater, ate everything. Gamma even made her jello mold, another dish she hasn’t made in forever. I ate so much I easily made myself look pregnant by sticking out my full stomach haha!
Today, Gamma and I had our typical Sunday and had leftover tenderloin sandwiches on rye bread along with the jello salad. There was lots of yummy sounds to be heard.
It’s been a very restful weekend, though yesterday I was a bit stoned, having taken my new med in the morning. I took it in the morning on Friday and wasn’t really affected by it, but it’s a cumulative med, duh. So yesterday I was quite sluggish and sleepy.
Today I started feeling like I might be coming down with something. About midway through the afternoon at Gamma’s my throat started getting achey and scratchy. Ooooh noooo!!! I hope I’m not getting sick, because I need to hit my home gym this week and start working off all this food!
I hope you all had a great weekend, whether you celebrate the holiday or not!
