This Year's Menu

5 days til Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We officially have our Christmas menu all planned out. Last year, I decided to start a new tradition. I let each of us pick our favorite dish (or what sounded good) and I made it. We ended up with a mish mash of food and we all loved it! This years menu is all set!
The Genius picked my marinated steaks.
The Hippie wanted ramen noodles and these cheesy crescent rolls I make (since they are EASY I let her have both. Plus in all fairness to her we all devour the rolls I make).
I picked a hashbrown casserole my mom always makes and hanky panky (I got to choose 2 items because one is for the baby ;) ). The hanky panky will be an all day snack. I will have it warm in the crock pot all day.
My husband asked for mashed potatoes because he loves the steaks and loves potatoes with it!
A weird menu for sure, but everyone will be so pleased and they are all easy dishes! Most can be made ahead.
What is on your Christmas menu?

Last night we took the girls to a local live nativity. It was really cold so we were not able to stay long. They enjoyed it though! We woke up to a very small dusting of snow today and I know the girls were disappointed they could not play in it. However, the weather forecast does show a chance of snow for Christmas. In 5 days we will know for sure!

Our menu is Breakfast-- Oatmeal pancakes, bacon (Olivia) and sausage (Sarah). We will have snacks the rest of the day. Crackers with hummus, carrots also to dip in the hummus, praline nuts and chex (a recipe I made ahead already--yummy), Olivia has goat cheese for her crackers too as a treat, we are having sausage balls too.

What is Hanky Panky?

Our menu is turkey, dressing, giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green beans, cranberry salad, and rolls. Pumpkin pie for dessert. Yummy!

Merry Christmas!

Kim - It is sausage (cooked) and mixed with cheez whiz. Then you put it on cocktail rye bread. YUM!

Ah - I was going to ask Kim's question.

Wow ... your poor arteries are screaming in fear just reading the recipe. :)

Sounds good!

Hmmm, that is NOT the definition of hanky panky I have heard. ;)

Anyway, sounds like a fun menu! Merry Christmas!!!!!!!
