The Daily Pixel: Ending the year at home

Is it just me or do these weekday holidays confuse anyone else? I have no idea the day or date. The off two, work one, off one, work two, off two thing is driving me mad! Of course, as I know we're heading into a holiday wasteland for awhile (unless you're a lucky SOB who gets Presidents Day), I'll zip my lip and try to enjoy the confusion a bit longer. In the mean time, here are the final Daily Pixel photos of the year!

#363- Dec 28- Southern style buttermilk biscuits, I die
It might be due to recency effect, but I swear these biscuits were one of the best things I ate all year. So much so that I made them twice in one week! (Do not be surprised when my next three posts including waistline whining). Follow the recipe author's advice and you, too, can have flaky, tender, buttery biscuits. Click here to find the how-to.
#364- Dec 29- Shawna's first cast iron skillet
A little late to the cast iron party, but here I am with the biggest frying pan on earth (it seems like). Since I apparently have no conception of size, I purchased a $34 15-inch Lodge cast iron pan on Amazon last week. If I could lift it, it would double as a weapon! The thing is monstrous and barely fits in the oven. One of my New Year's goals is to season the things properly.
#365- Dec 30- Flowers don't like freezing!
For the record, I fully expect these perennials to blossom again come Spring but for now, I feel like the worst gardener ever. Could these beds BE any uglier?? Never fear though, I'm planting bulbs here pretty soon. Tulips to the rescue!
#366- Dec 31- The forecast for 2013
In case you wonder what my post-holiday plans include.
