Christmas Dinner

Let me start by saying that Christmas dinner was DELICIOUS. I went to what used to be Brink’s Meat Market here in town but has become Pueblo Bounty and Yield, to pick up filet mignon for our special dinner. While I was in Wal-Mart the other day looking at their filet mignon I held a […]
