We finally got our Christmas tree up yesterday and now I’m totally in the mood for Christmas. David will be out of town a couple of days this week but we are still going to work in at least a couple of our Christmas traditions. Our menu will be a bit light on the cooking for me because of those traditions which is just fine with me!
One of our Christmas traditions is to pick up Chinese food and watch “A Christmas Story”. I think I’ll make my own sweet and sour chicken and just pick up the fried rice and egg rolls from the local Chinese restaurant.
- sweet and sour chicken
- fried rice
- egg rolls
David will be out of town. Good time to serve fish.
- baked salmon
- baked potato
David still out of town.
- turkey and noodles (from leftover Thanksgiving turkey)
- biscuits or rolls
- homemade cranberry sauce
Another Christmas tradition we have is to take our dog, Shiloh, to the Sonic Drive-In for dinner and then drive around the park to see the Christmas lights. I know…but we don’t have grandchildren – ha!
We are attending the 90th birthday party of someone in our community and there will be sandwiches and other foods. That will likely be our dinner.
Our church is having a Christmas meal after morning worship. I’m making homemade dressing/stuffing for the meal. We’ll likely just have a snack later that evening.
