TGIF - Omelet with Skillet Potatoes, Extreme Budget, Day Twenty-Two

TGIF - I wrote this post last Friday. That's how behind I am. I do apologize but today could be a Monday or Wednesday to me. All I know is this will not be published on a Friday.
I have lost track of time. The only reason I know it's Friday is because tickets to the Giants game needed to be given to someone else because I am not 100% and with the rain and cold, am not risking getting worse. One of the guys The Nudge works with is taking his family. I am glad they went to someone who really appreciated the chance to go.

Getting sick right before Christmas is the pits. I have a unique recipe for Cranberry Cheesecake that I have developed and before I make my final approach, I need to make one for testing. We have a huge family Christmas Reunion/80th Birthday Party in Philadelphia next weekend and I still have stocking stuffers and wrap I need to buy. My side entrance is still not decorated and with the rain I doubt I will be plugging in any light sets. Yes, really, TGIF.

To all of those celebrating Hanukkah, I wish you a week of peace and good will.

The Nudge wants a dinner omelet tonight. No, I am not making potato latkes, I was requested to make southwestern skillet potatoes. Now I know why I lean towards unfreedom of choice.

I suppose I could make two different kinds of potatoes but why would I? I don't even feel like making the one.
So if a blooper poops pops up on this blog in the near future, please forgive me although I am backwards and upside down, I will always TGIF.
