Dad only ever taught me to make four or five things. Ham-fried rice, bratwurst, oysters with mayo on saltines, rice with cocoa, and frequent visits to Burrito Baby's. You can't blame him for the oysters. He comes from a German Oma who still makes Oyster stuffing for Thanksgiving.
I decided to make the old man proud by whipping up some rice with cocoa-- perfect for a cold winter night. (well, as cold as santa barbara gets anyways.)
thanksgiving is this week... christmas is right around the corner! I was so excited I couldn't help myself. I put on christmas music and even put up the tree! Jodi is less than thrilled.There are strict rules about Holidays around here. I must be my mother's son though, as soon as Jodi's not looking I'm gonna decorate the house too.
