Well, twill be a busy week ’round here! Christmas Eve will be with my family, the next day with Brad’s, and then on Friday at noon nearly 40 people will crash into our little joint for an extended family gathering which will last through brunch the next day. Fortunately I’m not housing all of them overnight or hosting the brunch (thanks mom!). Also not providing all of the food (thanks everyone!).
Busy as I’ll be, I can’t wait. Best week of the year, provided nobody starts throwing up!
Merry Christmas to you all!
Monday: Cheeseburger Roll, since it got skipped last week, Buttered Beets, Green Beans
Tuesday: Chicken Wings (anybody have a good recipe?), Oven Fries, Broccoli
Wednesday: I’ll take cookies and probably something else to my parents’
Thursday: I’m taking cookies and Fruit Tapioca to Brad’s family
Friday: everybody is helping out with both meals. I’m providing Baked Corn, Broccoli, Pickles, Pudding, Italian Peasant Stew, and Breads. Probably cookies, too, if there are any left
Saturday: I’ll bring leftovers to my parents’ for people to nibble throughout the afternoon. Who knows what supper will look like.
Sunday: Scrapple, Roasted Root Vegetables, Green Beans, and any random leftovers
Desserts: pudding (not sure what kind yet), a double batch of angel whispers
Odds and Ends: unsure
