Holiday Recap


How were your holidays?  I haven't posted in awhile but I always try to recap what I made during the mad rush of this season, if only so I can go back next year and remember what I made this year.  You'd think I could just write this stuff down, but meh, I'd rather share it here!

Anyway, so what was on your menus?  We ended up having (6) adults and (3) children to feed for Christmas Eve, Christmas morning, and Christmas dinner.  Here's a breakdown of what we did.  I've included links where I can, in case you want to see the recipe we used.
