Our Christmas Day ~ 2008
( more of our Christmas here and here ! )
Charles had said he'd get up to get the dinner going. He always likes to make the cornbread for the dressing, anyway, and this time I was more than happy to leave it to him! :)
Zach had awakened me early, to say goodbye and Merry Christmas, before leaving for Orlando; but I was so tired I just had to hang in there awhile...and let things unfold in the kitchen without my help! By the time I got up (probably around 9:00) things were well under way and we were able to get the dressing/stuffing together and the turkey stuffed and in the oven by 10:00.
It would require almost 4 hours of cooking time! We would have our Christmas dinner ready about 2:00!
I must say this was a perfect turkey dinner...stuffed turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn, sliced tomatoes, candied sweet potatoes, rolls, cranberry sauce...carrot and celery sticks/with veg-sour cream dip... AND LOTS of desserts! I didn't make my banana pudding this time, though! :( We all missed it, too!
We had a fine Christmas Day!
(but we missed Zach)
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
