I'm making Baked Chicken with Apricot Jam, Thyme & Lemon (super yummy). We'll have that with baked sweet potatoes and fresh baked Texas rolls. I made some curry dressing earlier, so I think we'll have that on a salad of homegrown lettuce and shrimp and whatever else I can find that looks like it belongs.

I don't know why I still don't have any energy. Anyhoo, we ordered Italian food. I got something with fettuccine, porcini mushrooms, pancetta, kalamata olives, shallots, and cream. DH had pollo piccata.

In Danish this day is called, "lille juleaften". That translates to "little Xmas Eve".

"lille juleaften" sounds more enchanting than Festivus, taxy.

We did a run to the butcher shop down near Amish country and picked up some favorites. I made a pan of hot dogs, potatoes, and onions tonight. Simple comfort food.

MMM, CG that looks yummy!
I'm guessing this was all served up at Loverly's place?
