Well I took a vote between my dh and two youngest boys to see if they wanted me to cook a Christmas dinner. All three voted yes so looks like I am cooking. Honestly I am not looking forward to it. I don't know that I'm up to it. But I will try for them. So on the menu is:
Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, green beans, baked corn cassarole, sweet potato cassarole, home made egg noodles, turnip greens, deviled eggs, baked apples, home made yeast rolls, and pecan pie.....whew!!! Well this momma might make everyone's favorites but I'm smarter than I use to be....some of this stuff is going to be made the day before!!!!
So what do you cook for Christmas? Are you cooking a big dinner? Do you go somewhere else for Christmas dinner?
I would be all for going to a restaurant for a Christmas get together. I actually think it's pretty smart.
I'm kind of flattered that my boys want me to cook but it sure is going to be hard on me and for that reason I'm dreading it. My dh will help me when I need him to but he aggrevates me so much when he is in the kitchen because he wants to constantly taste test everything and it drives me batty!!! I just want to shout "stay out of the food!".
Now,.....how many of you treat your pets with a special dinner too? Lol, I confess I do! Jill will get a plate of her very own and the cats get a can of fish and shrimp. ( they usually only have hard catfood).
It will be my 3 boys, my mom, MIL, ex-DIL and her boyfriend, my granddaughter, my youngest sons gf, dh and myself.11 people total. Nice little party:) how big is your family?
Then on Christmas day my dh's family all get together at his mom's house and there are too many to count!!
And then my SIL always has us up to her house for a Christmas dinner with her family.
So 3 Christmas dinners! I hope Weight Watchers has a special come Jan. 1st cause I'm going to need it!!!:)
