    On Christmas Day I go to my great aunt's house for lunch. She has a traditional Indonesian feast. This consists of "yellow rice" which is rice made w/tumeric, and different meats--fried chicken, beef, and pork; gado-gado which is a salad of steamed cabbage, green beans, and bean sprouts served with peanut sauce and shrimp chips. There are a bunch of other sides too but those are the main dishes. Indonesian food can be very spicy and is very flavorful. It's one of my favorite foods so i'm really looking forward to the lunch!

    I don't think I'll be having anything special on Christmas Eve since I have to work that day but I did buy a 12lb turkey so I might roast that on the day after Xmas!

    I managed a 4 day weekend for Christmas by taking Monday off.
    It's been 4 days of eating and vegetating.
    Saturday breakfast was bacon, eggs and toast, Lunch was grilled cheese sandwiches, and in the evening we started the royal feasting with a pound of cold shrimp. Some cheese and crackers and wine.
    Sunday's decadence began by going out to Denny's for breakfast, followed by a Luncheon Birthday Party for the neighbor and they served Roast Beef, Fried Chicken, Green Beans, Country Mashed potatoes and gravy and salad. We had Filet Minion for dinner, Nothing else, just the steak because we had already had so much other stuff earlier.
    Yesterday we had Scrumptious Biscuits and Gravy for Breakfast. Loaded Nacho's for lunch and Snow Crab legs and Artichokes for dinner.
    Today started with Cinnamon Pecan rolls and for dinner we are having Prime Rib roast with twice baked potatoes, Aunt Ruth's Carrot casserole, Stuffed Mushroom Sage Dressing and Dinner rolls, Cranberry Sauce.



    Picture is the casserole dishes ready to go in the oven. We didn't manage to get a pic of the prime rib or anything after it was finished. We were too intent on eating.

    I had managed to lose about 15 lbs a few months ago.....I've probably put half of that back on this weekend alone!

    I have a 4 day weekend next weekend too...I've already told Bruce that one needs to be productive...not like this one.

    Wow! We did nothing fancy. Was too busy so went with meatball sandwiches along side of Philly sandwiches, Crock pot style this year.

    Pfffft. I was on strike this year for Christmas. My younger child moved off to College in August, so I've been suffering Empty Nest syndrome. No lights, no tree, no nuthin' this year for me. <whine, whimper, grumble>

    So Scrooge (me) and Dear Hubby went to my Father's home on Christmas Day and joined them for their feast. I must say that my Father is a world-class BBQ and Smoker - so his menu was:
    Smoked Short Ribs, Smoked Ham, and Smoked Turkey, with greenbeans and new potatoes, Ceasar salad, fresh biscuits, and the family recipe for Pecan Pie! (Our family had a patent on pecans years ago.)

    That sounds awesome! I have a smoker that just sits there. I am afraid of ruining meat, the most expensive part of the meal. Lol
