Some families stop giving gifts to those married or over twenty-one, those no longer children. In other families they do a grab bag swap, in others the adult exchange gifts under a certain dollar amount. In many families they’ve eliminated gifts for all but those in their own households - after all, is it great fun to open them - and make instead a nice charitable contribution in the name of the family.

1 cup of leftover mashed potatoes
1 Tbsp. dried onion (I’ve used fresh chives and scallions too)
3 Tbsp. flour
salt and pepper
1 or 2 Tbsp. butter and 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
Let them brown on their bottoms – you’ll see the edges start to get brown – flip them over, brown the other sides and Voila! Good schtuff!

|Bubbly hot out of my trusty toaster oven.|
|I added some sliced green onions for a bit of color.|
* the original recipe uses Monterey Jack cheese, but I've always got mozzarella on hand so I substituted.
** to be true to our lovely state of South Carolina, you should use Clemson Blue. It is usually available at Young Plantation/Reid's on Rt.521 at Rt.160 in Indian Land.

|St. Martin's Day in the Netherlands|
|Yes, this was me around age six. I was a curmudgeon even then.|
I was often a bit snerty about having my picture taken.
Don't you love the look? My older granddaughters call this
"the lemon look".
