Between decorating, shopping and wrapping and baking, I am so done with "working" for Christmas. When that day comes, I want to relax and enjoy it, not spend the day preparing a meal for it.

We eat at my parents around lunch time. She cooks most of the main dishes, I have ask several times for my sisters and I to do it, but my mom insists on cooking. So, we all bring extras, like different appetizers, sides or desserts. I am bringing one of each, not sure about the side yet.

Here is what I am going to do for the appetizer. I am going to make a cheese and olive tray and around the edge of the platter I am going to put these little guys. (I think the kids will think its cute)

For dessert, I am going to try and make a Charlotte Russe for my dad (a childhood favorite)

You have a Burger King open on Christmas? WEIRD. Nothing around here is open on Christmas and I mean NOTHING. I can't imagine a fast food restaurant being open. Very sad.

On Christmas morning I always get up early and make Monkey Bread. We just kind of snack the rest of the day and then have turkey and all for dinner. It's just a cozy day at home.

On NYE our tradition is to have fondue!

Ya know, I think it's the same way around here, too, now that I think of it. Eve - lots of it open. But day, they are all closed. Same with Thanksgiving...all closed.

Although I would LOVE a meatless whopper for Christmas....it's a guilty pleasure of mine!!

Ours are actually open for about half a day on Thanksgiving. Christmas, all closed. I do crave a hamburger every Christmas. Never get one, but the craving is there.

Only have breakfast covered.


Cinnamon Roll Casserole


Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of melted butter or baking spray
2 cans (12.4 oz each) Pillsbury® refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
4 eggs
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup maple syrup

Garnish:
Icing from cinnamon rolls
Maple syrup (if desired) --I found it was sweet enough without it.
Directions:
Heat oven to 375°F. Pour melted butter into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish.
Separate both cans of dough into 16 rolls; set icing aside. Cut each roll into 8 pieces; place pieces over butter in dish.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Beat in cream, cinnamon and vanilla until well blended; gently pour over roll pieces. Drizzle with 1/4 cup syrup.
Bake 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Meanwhile, remove covers from icing; microwave on Medium (50%) 10 to 15 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle.
Drizzle icing over top. If desired, spoon syrup over individual servings.

Why is it sad? Maybe we just live in a culturally diverse area but plenty of people around here don't celebrate Christmas.

In the tropics of Australia it is either hot and dry or hot and rainy so hot cooked meals are often replaced with lots of seafood and cold roast meats or cold ham plus salads and usually eaten outside.

It is usually just me, hubby and the kids for Christmas (family issues), so we usually have pancakes and syrup or bacon, fried eggs, grilled tomato and toast for breakfast. Lunch will be as above and dinner is usually left overs. We usually potter about during the day, play under the sprinklers if it's hot, watch videos or go to the river or beach to cool off. It is also the one day where I almost always disposable plates etc because I don't want to wash up.

This is our first Christmas as a family of 3! Our tradition has been to have waffles for Christmas eve dinner before church at 5, then banana splits after church. Then on Christmas day it's cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and I think this year we're having lasagna, Italian bread, and caesar salad for dinner. We had that last year and it was so easy because I made the lasagna ahead of time and just had to heat it up.

Christmas Eve will probably be over my brother's house. 4/5 adults and 5 kids

We'll probably order out for pizza. And have some snacks/desserts to round out the night.


For Christmas Day Dinner, we'll be going over to my husband's sister's house.

She's having....
Turkey/gravy
mashed potatoes
sweet potatoes
stuffing
turnips
green beans
rolls

And for dessert there will be key lime pie, lemon pie, chocolate pie, cheesecake, cookies, christmas crack, oreo truffles.
