    Here goes the plan,

    First it's hors d'Å?uvres, crackers with smoked ousters, smoked salmon. Yogourt vegetable dip with all sorts of fresh veggies. Roasted turkey breasts with all the dressings Asparagus, beets, sweet potato, home made cranberry sauce, Fresh mixed salad. Desserts, variety of tarts, mince meat, blueberry and butter pecan. Myth throw in a Christmas log will see.

    It myth seem like a lot but I always take only one serving and don't eat lunch. We don't have to indulge too much tomorrow is another day.
    And we could always dance the cha cha cha to burn some calories LOL

    Hope you all have a great holiday season.

    Hug

    very nice menu , Helene, save a spot for me.
    with my travel plans , we are still up in the air as to when we will hold our Christmas down here. I'm thinking if the boys really want Christmas before I go, then , we will just have to eat the "big Christmas dinner" after I return because I truly cannot see myself killing myself cooking all day, then the very next morning before daybreak setting out on a 24 hr road trip..... ummmmm , no.
    If nothing else, I may just do a Mexican feast on thurs or fri , whenever i can get everyone together, then do the rest later. no idea.

    Oh something a bit quicker to make and bake than the usual ham or turkey.... like seafood enchiladas, reg beef enchiladas and el grande nachos supreme. Two hearty casseroles and a finger food dish, lol. sounds about right to me.
    plus , maybe flan. Instead of baking my own, I could hop down to chile verde and just buy 5 individual flan desserts and that would cut alot of time.
    Its actually sounding better and better the more I think on it.

    Probably waffles or cinamon rolls for breakfast and a ham for dinner.

    Cookie baking, etc. Already made/ate the gingerbread house. My college son, his high school girlfriend and I like it most. I bought it, they volunteered to make it. And this year it was very fresh! yummy!

    Bought a snicker doodle cookie mix, they made that together yesterday! Shared it with other friends.

    My other son made a new chocolate pretzel recipe for school today, and for friend party here after school today!

    My weight is sort of steady. I keep up with my core exercises, and lots of shopping...

    All your Dinners and Breakfast sound so good!!!

    I have to start getting a mind set on what will happened after January 3. Start thinking about strategies and start applying on D day.

    Maybe some of you don't need this but I'm a long term planner, I have to brew thing a long time before I start acting.
