Anyhow, I had planned on going to town tomorrow with my mother-in-law to finally get all of our food for Christmas Dinner, Eve, and the weekend. But, since they won't be here until late tomorrow night, and the next day is Christmas Eve, I figured I had better venture out today! So, I am taking my sisters with me for reinforcements, and we are off to Costco and the grocery store. I need to make myself a detailed list so that I don't forget anything. So far, our menu will be something like this:
- We always have homemade pizza, so that will be the same. Although this year, gluten-free!
- Spiced Ham with Orange Slices
- Creamy Herbed Potatoes
- Haricot Vert with Shallots
- Peas and Cheese Salad
- Sweet Corn
- Homemade Rolls
- Pie for dessert: Pecan, Pumpkin and Cherry
Plus yummy vegetables and homemade ranch dip, olives, summer sausage, crackers and cheese,
pickled asparagus, artichoke dip, and all of our delicious candy and cookies.
I am certain that there will be far more food than we will need, but since there will be 15 or
so of us, I think variety will be nice. ;)
At least, that's what I am telling myself so I have some motivation for my shopping spree ahead.
