Hello, Blogland Friends,
Yes, I've been a bit scarce lately, but 'tis the season for family, friends, and making merry with them, right? I'll be back regularly after the first of the year, but until then I'll pop in when I can.
I hope and pray that you are enjoying a meaningful Christmas season with your loved ones. I am trying to "be in the moment" and not worry about all the things on my holiday bucket list that didn't get crossed off.
Today I've been having fun preparing for our big family dinner tomorrow. We are having are traditional meal tomorrow afternoon, then on Christmas Day we'll have a big breakfast and then a smaller Mexican meal later in the day. We've done it like this for a couple of years now and it works perfectly for us!
Here's what's on the menu:
Christmas Eve Dinner
Shoe Peg Corn and Pea Relish
Coca-Cola & Brown Sugar Baked Ham
with Pineapple Sauce
Broccoli Rice Casserole
Mixed Vegetable Casserole
Christmas Morning Breakfast
Assorted Jellies, Jams, and Butters
Christmas Day Dinner
Chicken Tortilla Soup
Chips & Salsa
Pretty sure I'll have to go on a diet after the New Year begins!
