Oh! The food!!!
Oh! The aching stomach!
Oh! MORE food!
Oh! Am I glad I wore my elastic-waist pants!!!
Let's see...Where do I start? How about baking day?
We typically made:
homemade bread loafs (and I'm not talking two, here, people..I'm talking more like ten or fifteen)
crescent rolls (about 100)
sugar cookies (about 100)
magic cookie bars (1 or 2 9x13pans)
lemon triangles (1 or 2 8x8 square pans)
Russian tea cakes (lots...these are so good with coffee!)
peanut butter candies
chocolate chip cookies
Cranberry Salsa (with cream cheese and Wheat Thins)
We eat of lot of this stuff on Christmas Eve along with a whole bunch of sandwich stuff...ham, turkey, cheeses, the crescent rolls. A couple years we have made Christmas Eve a Hispanic food night and made enchiladas and taco soup with a whole bunch of chips and salsa.
For dinner on Christmas night we have:
green bean casserole
brussel sprouts and bacon (my fav)
sweet potato casserole
and more bread
For dessert we have:
apple pie (usually the sugar free kind)
and coffee, of course!
Sometimes we make:
Did I mention that I follow a low-carb diet? Yeah. Did you see it flying out the window like I do every year. Picture it. It happens. Trust me.
And this is just on MY side of the family.
Linkin' up to Twelve Weeks of Christmas!!!!
