Such a busy week ahead with all the last minute prep! Here’s my plan:
Taking the boys to visit Santa at the mall, so we will have dinner out afterwards and pick up our last minute shopping
Salmon (marinated and baked with bottled orange ginger sauce), Rice and Broccoli
Chicken Cacciatore over Spaghetti
Thursday – Christmas Eve
When I was young we often had traditional French Canadian Tourtiere for Christmas Eve dinner…unfortunately my family doesn’t like it! And many friends have culinary traditions of their own – Italian meatles meals and Ukranian Perogies etc. But we’ll just have a favorite of the boys instead – Meatballs in Applesauce with Rice and Broccoli and some yummy Christmas baking for dessert.
Friday – Merry Christmas!
We are having Christmas breakfast at home: Ham Steaks, Scrambled Eggs, Fresh Fruit Plate, Land of Nod Cinnamon Buns, Coffee, Tea and Champagne & Orange Juice!
Baking and nibbly appertizers will probably set out during the day and then we are going to my cousin’s for family dinner and I just have to bring along the salad – Mixed Greens and Pear
At home relaxing – probably having family over in the evening. A pot of simmering Hamburger Soup, a Mixed Green Salad and some Buns will work nicely for whoever drops by.
We’ll need a break after all the Christmas feasting so we’ll have Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Tomato Soup.
