So, I think people are nuts—as nuts as a big bowl of whole walnuts waiting to be cracked. Give up the enjoyment of a hot turkey dinner, pumpkin pie and a good bottle of Pinot Noir for pepper spray on Black Friday?! Seriously—there has to be a better way to get the family back to the table. After serving 31 this year, I could barely walk, let alone think of shoving all those people out of the way to get my $8.91 waffle iron at WalMart. This Cyber Monday thing sounds so civilized. I can sit with my leftover cranberry bread and click, click, click.

I think our granddaughter, Sophie, is asking for mac and cheese this year–good girl.

I sit in front of the computer not knowing what Cyber Monday is truly about, but knowing that the chocolate-covered pears from Harry and David look like a crowd pleaser—sign me up for six boxes. 

Mr. Chatterbox looks like he wants cupcakes this year–look at that intense study.

Cowgirlcreamery.com is the next click come Monday—give me three packages of the American Classics at $75 apiece (Mt. Tam, Humble Fog, Pleasant Ridge Reserve). For the fromage lover in the family, I say it’s a perfect gift and to relatives reading this…HINT HINT!

Kozlowskifarms.com in the Russian River of California is the next mouse move. The chipotle trio box, at $27, is perfect for those grilling fanatics who like a tang in the glaze. I buy myself the apricot mango chipotle by the case.

So far, I have purchased myself everything on this list and will next run to Fleming’s and Lee Roy Selmon’s to buy staff gift cards so I can get the $20 freebie—gosh, I love the season of giving, don’t you?

Santa, can you fit a burger on your sleigh this year?
