No celebrating yet - just lousy editing of already typed text, and not seeing the forest for the trees. It would be nice to have at least several hours to be able to edit posts here.

I was using a S7 Edge - but the screen cracked and would cost nearly $300 to fix, vs getting a new S9. Better battery, processor, camera and other things I'm not remembering. Was thinking about getting the S9 +, but it seemed a bit over-kill for what I need.

Getting a phone that is one generation behind is usually free or at the most, a couple hundred $. The new S10 is ridiculously priced at over $1000, which is crazy.

I hear you. I hate using a cell. The web on the phone really sucks. My bill runs about $7 per month for voice, data and text.

That's a pretty darn good price. Cheapest plans up here, that are reliable and offer the functions we mostly need, are about 5x that price. Seriously, we get reamed up here for cellular services.

Well it is a prepaid pay as you go plan. I could get more than reamed here if I wanted to do so.

Have a great evening and don't party to hearty.

For me it is somewhat secular version of the Serenity Prayer and they both say the same thing.

My stomach ran out of space last night before I ate my fill of country ham so I just had some for breakfast.

Do you know what it is or have you ever eaten any?

Country ham? Not sure if I've ever had it. I know things between countries can sometimes be named differently. In some US eateries, when asked for what type of bacon you wanted for breakfast, if you wanted peameal, you might have to specify "Canadian bacon". Whereas up here, if you wanted peameal, you'd have to ask for peameal. Otherwise you'd just get the standard pork belly bacon strips.

I guess it's like being in Brazil and asking for brazil nuts. There, they just call them nuts. I recall that tid-bit from The Rundown.

Country ham is is southern USA thing though I suspect at one time it had to be everywhere.

It is ham smoked and cured with salt and more salt. Prior to cooking one must soak it at least 24 hours with several water changes or it is much too salty to eat. The center cut slices are often pan fried and the prime center slices are fairly pricey.

Rather than baking I use my grandmother's recipe and slow boil it. I use a stock pot and not the lard can she did.

This year I just bought some already cooked at the grocery.

Last year (Xmas dinner 2017), I was on kitchen cleanup duty. I think it took me two hours.

This year, I had 3 begrudging helpers on cleanup duty, and we were done in 20 minutes.

My helpers are never begrudging. I cook they do the cleanup. Everyone wins.

I wouldn't even attempt to do the bird. We'd all end up in the ER with salmonella poisoning!

We don't do fowl food for Christmas.

We usually have a simple meal of prime beef rib roast and baked taters. Once I learned how to cook the silly thing it is really so simple and good.

A beef meal is certainly in the realm of what I could manage. Although I'm actually thawing a Prime Rib roast in the fridge for din in a couple of days, I'm more into the beef tenderloin roasts. And if were talking steaks, I like a good strip loin the best.

I with you on the strip steak. Never had a tenderloin roast. How does it compare to prime rib? I would think you would need to add some fat to that.

I've never cooked tenderloin at home. That is one dish I eat out at a local place that drowns them in garlic butter and broils them and serves with a 1 pound baked or hand cut steak fries.

Nowhere in this did I mention healthy.

While I really like the tenderloin, I love the "texture" of a good striploin. I don't know why, but I do. As with the tenderloin, it should be "marbled" just right.

The tenderloin roast cut (and filet steak) is so tender, as it's the most tender cut as far as I know, and it needs no extra fat. A good tenderloin is "marbled" throughout, but not too infused with fat. My wife loves the Prime Rib roast, but it does have a lot of extra fat - not my thing. And we're trying to eat better.

(Have you seen or heard about the "What To Eat When" book? I'm going to look into it because with the "Eat When" philosophy, you really don't have to suffer when trying to eat right, because it's not a typical "diet".)

No but I read an online article, something like the 50 worst foods ...................

and was forced to wonder what the heck they ate since the article pretty much summed up all the foods I eat.
