    YBaverage, I'm swooning over your menu. Like Faye said, you got this! Enjoy!

    I am super impressed over your fresh horseradish. I didn't know you could buy that!

    Em2s - you have such a lovely way with words. If you are not already a writer, you should consider a career change. :-)

    ybaverage2003 - and I believe the blog meal caravan will be kicking off the holiday weekend at your house!! How does 2 pm sound?? lol Your dinner sounds fabulous. It will be great. You got this!

    jdouglas13 - hmmm...you may have motivated me to add some roasted sweet potatoes to my dinner as well. Thanks for the idea.

    Today is Christmas Dinner, Part 1. Making prime rib, roasted root veggies, mashed potatoes, yeast rolls,sauteed mushrooms. Will have fresh horseradish & au jus on the side. Starting with salad and tomato basil soup. Pumpkin pie & cookies for dessert. Wish me luck !!

    I think tonight we're going to have the sheet pan dinner of roasted sweet potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts, and baked chicken drumsticks. I'm hoping to do some baking today, so that will be an easy to make and easy to clean up dinner.

    Similar here: crockpot 3-bean dish, melted swiss, sliced tomato and lettuce on toasted wheat. Faye, I hope each moment of your holidays becomes treasures of the heart!!!

    Safe travel wishes and Christmas blessings one and all!!

    I think tonight it's a soup and sandwich night. The next 3 nights involve heavier holiday meals so we are going light tonight. I'm having tomato rotini soup and a veggie burger on rye. I'm guessing the rest of the gang will want grilled cheese with their soup.
