I know it is a little early to think about your Christmas menu but this is what my daughter-in-law and I did yesterday. We made our dates to make our Christmas cookies, (Hey mom, if you want to join us, we are making them December 5 and 6th) we just have to come up with the recipes that we will use.
Side note: I remember when I was a kid, my mom would make these one cookies. For the life of me I don't know what they are called or how to make them. I just remember, she would make the dough, roll it out and cut it into strips and fry it in oil. After frying it she would put powered sugar on top. Those were the best cookies. (Oh my, I'm getting really hungry)
We want to make up a package's for my son Aaron (who is in the Navy) and for my daughter Becca (she lives in Texas). We must make cookies for our families that live with us, as well. I don't think my children would be very happy, if they didn't get any Christmas cookies. Hey, if anyone has a great recipe for Christmas cookies, please pass it my way.
I'd better run, I am getting my granddaughter and one of my grandson's this morning. It will be off to work for me this afternoon and Worship team practice tonight at 5:50 p.m. A little time with the family, off to bed for a few hours and off to my two cleaning jobs in the early a.m. Tomorrow, I'll be heading to my house cleaning job, Motor route again in the afternoon and who knows what tomorrow night will bring? I just have a feeling my boy's are going to ask if their best friend's can come over again. I've been spending my Friday evenings with my Son Bret and his family.
Life is good!
I thought I'd post a preview of Our Christmas dinner, it sounds so yummy right now.
We are going to have the following:
I don't want to rush things, but I can't wait!
