Now that Thanksgiving is an entire DAY behind us, let's talk about Christmas food. I think that makes perfect sense.
So, again, my sister and her family are coming in for the week of Christmas, and since I can't actually remember the last Christmas I spent with her (maybe in 2000?), I am ridiculously excited about this year's festivities.
I'm planning some special menus.
She flies in Christmas Eve afternoon and I assumed no one would feel like cooking a big meal, but Mike got very sad about breaking our breakfast-for-dinner Christmas Eve tradition, so we'll cook.
Mike's Scramble. (Mike is going to whip up scrambled eggs with onions, peppers, cheese, etc. He's requested we refer to this as "Mike's Scramble" for the duration of the holidays.)
Cheap cinnamon rolls from a tube. (Delicious, though!)
Steak (Mike's taking care of this)
Scallops in hazelnut browned butter (I've been eating a little fish for about a month now--just once every couple weeks or so--and I'll enjoy these on Christmas night.)
Store-bought dinner rolls
French silk pie, perhaps? (Haven't quite decided on dessert.)
Have you thought about what you're having this year?
