Yes, I was a teen trying to deal with little boy things. I'm 10 years older. Poor kid had 4 mothers, he never stood a chance. Now he is a looming bulk at over 6'2" and he still looks up to me.

I'll be heading to my mother's house to meet my oldest two kids for the afternoon. One of my brothers will also be there. So it will be a small contingent. My brother is a good cook so, together, we will make up a traditional turkey dinner to help out Mom. She doesn't like us in her kitchen though, so there is usually some good natured arguing. Our xmas's are always fragmented. We also plan to spread the visits to my mom's house out so she isn't overwhelmed all at once. My other brother will visit boxing day and my sister will visit sometime after that.
My youngest is going with her mother to visit her family in Southern Ontario for the holidays. I'll be packing them up and sending them off today.

Just bring a smile and your appetite. I've since added a sweet potato dish to the dinner menu and a few more sweets to the dessert table. I've become the Energizer Bunny of baking this week. I've gotta stop!!!!

Veggie substitution...Asparagus instead of broccoli. It was on sale and looked good when I got to the store.

Picked up the prime rib (a beautiful hunk of grass fed beef) on Tuesday and it's now "dry aging" in the fridge. I've got a mile long list of groceries to pick up in the morning.

Last minute shopping here today too. I decided to add to the Christmas Eve dinner. I'm going to make beet soup like we used to have when I was, um, much younger and I am finally going to try my hand at kruschiki ( a Polish cookie).

I think I used to spend more on holiday dinners than I did for weekly groceries.

Dave, what kind of cookie is that? I love Czech kolaki, a cream cheese shortbread with honeyed walnut filling.
