The holidays are upon us! I'm tempted to just run away screaming. But this year is going to be extra special because my son is here with us. I feel complete as a family once again.
Around my house, we alternate years in the way of Traditional Thanksgiving or Traditional Christmas meals.
One year we'll have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner of turkey with all the fixings and then a non-traditional dinner for Christmas. Such as Chinese food, Mexican or Italian. Then the next year we switch that around to have the non-traditional Thanksgiving and then the traditional Christmas feasts.
This year, we're striving for Greek. Anyone know what a traditional Greek Christmas dinner consists of? I might just have to make it up as I go along. I just want Gyros. Hehe!
I've also been working all week. I asked for the extra hours and got them. I'm not complaining, we need the money to make up for our hasty move. It just means I have to make sure I get the major things for the meal prepared in advance. Most likely I will be doing lots of baking tonight. I have a couple of pies in the freezer all ready to go. I can mix up the green bean casserole (yuck!) and have it ready to just throw in the oven. My family likes it, I don't. I don't like sweet potatoes or yams either.
I hope you all have a wonderful, safe Thanksgiving! I will see you all after the madness.
