See, I did learn something about you two!

Heidi, I would never dare call you Heids. How funny. And yes, I am a cat energy person. Just wait till I'm thin again; my face looks disturbingly feline. And Port! How exotic and...1950s of you. I love it! Fourth time Ireland has come up in conversation in the last few days for me. Wish I had the moolah to plan a trip there.

M, were you in America's version of Tunisia filming a Star Wars fan film, mayhap? And I always forget that Godfather is a fav of yours. Have you ever done a Godfather New Years viewing? Or would that be too weirdly anti-family?

By the way, your Thanksgiving on New Years was divine...Thanks again! Can I get the recipes for the potatoes and the ginger sweet potatoes?

Leia --

SO glad to have you over! Have contmeplated Coppola's amsterpiece (even the flaming pile of dog turd that is Part III), but CC loves it far less than me.

I'll check with CC's Williams-Sonoma cookbook and email you the recipe for the gingered sweet potatoes. Surprisingly easy.

As for the unhealthy cheese potatoes, I'll send that one later. You'll hate yourself while you'll love eating it. There's a reason I only make it 1-3 times a year. :)
