Merry Christmas!!!!

Merry Christmas, everybody!!!

Yesterday, we celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ. Normally, our family has a big turkey dinner, but this year, we decided to change it up a bit.

Our family is scattered this year, so the plan was....
Christmas Eve menu was:
and root beer floats

Christmas Day, we had my mom and dad, our two youngest children, my husband and me. I decided to have a Cajun Christmas dinner. The menu?
jalapeno cornbread
king cake
Today (Dec 26), is our daughter's 24th bday. She and her husband are both vegans, so I decided to have a vegan dinner. The menu is as follows:
Tri Colored Orzo (minus the feta)
homemade bread
apple salad
sweet potato fries
green salad
cookies and vegan ice cream

Tomorrow, we will celebrate Christmas, since all of us will be here. My son and his wife come in sometime this evening. Our menu will be:
mashed potatoes and gravy
baked sweet potatoes
apple salad
vegan dressing
macaroni and cheese
vegan cheese ball and crackers
apple crisp pie
cherry pie

Even though our family is a bit scattered all of us were able to meet and be together at the end. 

Well, I better get up from here and get some stuff done before the last of the crew gets in. I'm sure the first thing everyone is going to want to do is open presents, then eat.
