Wow! Can you believe we are at the end of another year. It seems as though time goes by faster the older you get:( I have been busy cooking and cleaning and having a good time visiting. Today I made another batch of the pretzel and kisses treats, and I also baked the red velvet cake but I wont frost it until tomorrow. I bought some red tubed icing to write " Happy Birthday Jesus" on the cake. I mixed the dill dip packet that I bought from Brenda's Etsy shop. We will have Moroccan Chicken Stew for dinner served with raw assorted veggies with the dill dip. We went to the Honey Baked Ham store and bought a turkey breast to go with dinner tomorrow. We also stopped by the PetSmart to get the animals Christmas presents:) Im waiting for Justin's pay check to run so I can go to Safeway and buy some of the Christmas linens and decor they have %75 off right now. Tomorrows menu is Ham, turkey, Paula Deens cornbread stuffing, Tyler Florence from the food network has a dish called " The Ultimate Potato Gratin" we made it last year and it is really good, it has cabbage and bacon and parmesean cheese, yummy! also broccoli, colliflower and deviled eggs. I have the red velvet cake, choc. chip cookies, jam thumbprint cookies and the pretzel treats for dessert. I just gained ten pounds typing all this:))) I love the excitement in the kids faces in the morning. I am so prepared, I have the garbage bags ready, seating arrangements and Christmas music all in order. Im preparing the breakfast casserole tonoght so tomorrow it just gets popped in the oven, we will have that with the homemade banana bread that I made and some fruit also. Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!
