What's for Dinner Thursday December 24th

Well, we had tonight's pizza last night and won't be going out for dinner which is the usual tradition, so I was stuck for something to make for Dad and I.

Then it came to me, good old comfort food. We are having hot beef sandwiches and french fries! It will be easy to do as I am making the tourtiere and starting the dessert for tomorrow.

What's everyone else having tonight?

Nope, whipped egg whites, then beat yolks with powdered sugar, softened butter. Fold all together. Spices: cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice. Have it in the freezer. Will use a tablespoon or two of that with rum/brandy (gran marnier), boiling water to make each drink.

Nothing special. Hubby will probably have leftover corned beef and cabbage and I will have a sandwich or cereal.

Tonight my son is cooking at the restaurant so we will go there and he'll cook some good Japanese food for us after church. Tomorrow's pizza is made and in the frige. The peanut butter balls are done and the snickerdoodles and Granma B cookies are made. All that's left is the clean up but I had to take a break and eat something. So I made a roast beef sandwich with some sweet tea. Now I'll have the energy to do the dishes. Merry Christmas Eve everyone.

We finished the last of our holiday baking (a NY style cheesecake and paklava) for Christmas at my sister's home tomorrow. We went out for a late lunch at an Italian restaurant (unfortunate choice) and will be having wine and appetizers at a neighbor's home later.
