    LOL Terry. When my dh and me went to the movies he always fell asleep. Why did we spend this much for a nap.

    On Christmas Eve we use to have an easy supper. I made a homemade round loaf with caraway seeds, then made like a Welsh Rabbit except the liquid was a half a bottle of beer and just a dash of Worcheshire Sauce. You'd cut out the center of the bread and fill it with the Welsh Rabbit. What was cut out you made into large chunks so you could dip it. You'd then tear off the sides of the bread once that was gone. We called it Beer Bread. We'd have it with a nice large salad. Very easy to do and very little clean up. I think if you don't feel like having a major holiday meal for two it's nice. Kind of like a comfort food :-)

    We used to go to my Mom's, but now that she is celebrating Christmas in heaven, my Hubby and I are by ourselves. We have decided to go ahead and splurge and do a Prime Rib. Not sure on side dishes, but regardless we will like them. Maybe go for a ride in the evening to see lights.

    We did lobster for Thanksgiving and will probably have it again for Christmas. My DH is in charge of boiling it so I just do potatoes and we have a bagged salad. I baked a double batch of shortbread tonight so we won't starve for lack of cookies Maybe I'll do another pumpkin pie...I have a new recipe that uses just a little black pepper in it and it is really good!

    Christmas Eve my Daughter and her family come over and we wait for Santa to come by on a fire truck then we have a simple meal of steak, potatoes and salad. I put a ham in the oven for the next day. We have been doing the same thing for over 40 years.

    I recently heard about adding a pinch of black pepper to a pumpkin pie. I'm looking forward to trying it.

    Somehow it's worked out over the years that I do Christmas Eve dinner and all the kids go to their in laws for Christmas. So I'm making a huge spread and then left overs for Christmas! Dinner will include smoked Polish kielbasa and kraut, veggies, bread, deviled eggs.....oh I don't know....more stuff. Dessert is always sweet potato pie, an apple/cranberry tart and for the gluten freerers - coconut, chocolate almond candy thingys........I'm gettin hungry!

    Christmas dinner will be at a niece's home. I'm taking home-grown green beans (seasoned with country ham) and corn.

    My daughter is hosting on 23rd. Her husband will cook the turkey (he wraps it in bacon). I think she will buy the Butterball frozen stuffing. It's pretty good, and I have cheated some years and served it. I will help her prep the veggies and salad.

    I will cook the ham, mashed patatoes and sweet patatoes. If I have made sugar cookies & others I will bring bags for everyone.

    DIL will bring dessert and wine.

    We usually have appetizers, shrimp cocktails, cheese & crackers and vegetables & dip for the kids. This year will be different, as we are not hosting, first time since Michael & 8 are together 14 years. First time I haven't hosted in 40 years.

    Xmas eve, we have appetizers, mussels, shrimps, pates and cheeses, dips. Xmas day I may cook a roast beef as it will be us and a friend.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I might just make tacos. lol

    Thanks, Lorie. Why don't you come to our house and I'll cook that meal for you. I'll even try the Tart Tatin for you. Love your new avatar! So cute.
