We had a very nice Christmas but I’m not quite ready to bid it adieu. Fortunately our family traditionally keeps the Christmas tree up at least until Epiphany (January 6th) so I can keep on celebrating awhile longer. David is home today and we’ve done precious little so far. Ordinarily I write my menu post on Sunday and schedule it to post first thing Monday morning. But it was Christmas and I chose to postpone work and blog-related things for awhile.
We have leftover ham so I’ll incorporate that into tonight’s meal. I’d love to hear all about your holiday, and especially your holiday food traditions. Do leave me a comment and share a glimpse of your traditions, please.

Our daughter and son-in-law have been wanting us to go with them to their favorite steak house in OKC – Ranch Steak House. We decided to take a mid-week break and will then spend the night at The Skirvin Hotel.

- Tandoori Chicken
- curried coleslaw

We are staying home for New Year’s Eve this year. A cosy meal by the fire sounds lovely to me.
- filet mignon
- baked potatoes
- wedge salads
- steamed broccoli
- crescent rolls
My parents are coming over on Monday to celebrate my dad’s birthday and watch the Rose Bowl. The kids have plans so as far as I know we will be home alone for New Year’s Day. I’ll cook smaller portions of the traditional meal.
- ham (I froze the leftover ham from Christmas so I’ll just thaw and reheat with a new layer of brown sugar glaze.)
- smothered cabbage
- black eyed peas
- cranberry sauce
How was your holiday? Do you have a traditional New Year’s Day menu?
