We celebrate the Solstice, so we had our big, festive meal already. I made a pork roulade stuffed with dried apricots and prunes. We had trifle for dessert.

Tonight we will probably have pork schnitzel and leftover, mixed, garlic butter tossed vegis. Haven't decided if we will have 'taters or brown, basmati rice yet.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

We will be going to my older son's house this afternoon and having a dinner for 12. He is serving a roast leg of lamb, and also a ham. Everyone is bringing a side and I have my cheesy potato casserole ready for the Nesco roaster.
I also did my favorite broccoli salad. He said to bring a vegetable, and I like that the broccoli salad needs no further attention.
I'm about to go in the kitchen, and make a nice breakfast for the two of us.
Gosh, how I miss Christmas past when the kids were little, and the house was a wreck by now with wrapping paper everywhere.
Merry Christmas.

We will be going to our best friends' house. We had a big dinner over there yesterday (ham and all the fixings) and will munch on leftovers today while we watch a lot of Christmas movies. I can't believe Susan has never seen "Elf!" That will be the first one we watch! Then "It's a Wonderful Life."

That movie is a big hit around here. All year, actually.

We are having our Christmas dinner at 2 today. Everyone wanted turkey so that is the main course - with cornbread dressing, gravy, sweet potato casserole, fresh green beans, roast asparagus, cranberry relish, ambrosia, rolls. We already have a lemon meringue pie (the first one I've ever made from scratch) pumpkin pie, fruitcake squares, and various and sundry cookies. I'll need a nap, but won't get one.Dd is bringing another dessert - unknown to me at this time.

Merry Christmas to all of you. I'm so thankful we have a good reason to celebrate this day.

I'm taking it easy today. We will be having a late dinner.

This is the plan at the moment but the menu may change a bit.

Eye Round Roast
Yorkshire Pudding
Burgundy Gravy
Mashed red & yukon potatoes

Well, let's see. I'll begin with our breakfast. We had coffee, juice, my homemade potica with fresh butter, soft scrambled eggs, and baked blood sausage. Kind of a "soul food" meal from part of my heritage.

As for our Christmas dinner, it's a bit up in the air as we're in the midst of a snowstorm. We were supposed to have gone down the hill (next door) to Glenn's mother's home to have our big meal with his three children, their families and his mother, but many who would've been here and brought food aren't able to travel because of dangerous roads. Not sure what is going to transpire as of this moment.

What we DO have in our house is a big pan of cornbread dressing, several dozen freshly-baked potato rolls and the makings for bourbon balls and...candy that Santa left in our stockings.

More later............

Brunch: Blueberry & Sour Cream Scones with butter, OJ and Coffee.

Big meal: Pork Tamales with red chili sauce, Spanish Rice and Refries.

Dessert: Shortbread cookies with Lemon Curd.

Beverages: Blackberry wine, Rum (for me), Macallan 18 year old Scotch for Shrek...various other sodas, coffee etc. until we feel the need for the booze.
