  • Lonely (not lonesome) but joyous Christmas here. All of the kids are grown and they all have other plans, but I'm cool with that.

    As odd as it might sound I'm rocking a great halibut steak for Christmas dinner. I'm a bit torn on side dishes but I'm leaning towards some fresh green beans or broccoli.

    That may seem odd to others but I haven't had a really great halibut steak in ages .................. and I'm on a diet.
