After snacking on Christmas cookie and other pastries all day dinner was reduced from what I planned. I cooked the ham and made butternut squash soup, scalloped potatoes, and peas.

Our dinner went as planned and I even put the first dish on the table at the strike of 5 p.m., which is when I'd told everyone dinner would be served.

Everything came out perfectly and all at the right time...together. Yeah! Wasn't much left either.

I was surprised that one of the sons-in-law (age 35 and a successful attorney in a major city) had never had Cornish hens. They were the entree and Trey gobbled his up like a little kid eating candy. I was certain he'd had them because he's traveled all over the world and is quite a "foodie." Oh, well, go figure! Guess he missed that somehow. Now they're his new favorite food.

The real "hit" of the meal was the "sweet shoppe" display I created that was all the different cookies and candies I'd made for dessert. You never saw a group of adults act so crazy over cookies and candy in your life. Just like a bunch of little kids. It was quite a sight to behold.

In the end, everyone seemed to enjoy the meal...certainly dessert!

Mushroom caps stuffed with sweet Italian sausage, fresh garlic, mushroom stems, spinach, fresh grated parmesan & romano cheeses and mozzarella cheese.
