the halls are decked, the cheer is on.....


I know it's not the night before Christmas, but I'm not sure when I will get to post again. The last minute shopping is almost done-- I have one more trip to the grocery store to make, and a run into WalMart....oh dear. I have to ready my house for my son and daughter in law's arrival, and start cooking. It will be days of cooking, so I thought I'd better stop in to say hi before I fire up the kitchen. It's a balmy 78 degrees here and yet tomorrow will be a high of 40 degrees. Now THAT"S cooking weather! So I'll start by fixing a few goodies, perhaps some fudge, some chubby hubby cookies, some oreo truffles, and some Puppy Chow. The kids will love it!


Then I'll start my annual Neighbor Baking session. Wait, no I'm going to bake my neighbors, rather bake something FOR my neighbors! I usually bake Christmas morning treats for my neighbors...who needs more cookies??? But everyone seems to love things to enjoy on Christmas morning. In fact, I think one neighbor and her husband might go hungry if I didn't fix their breakfast treats.....not that they can't afford it, or that she can't make it, it's just that she counts on my treats for breakfast! So I'll be making Sausage Biscuit Bites (angel biscuits with sausage mixed in), applesauce muffins, some banana bread, and some Christmas morning rolls......biscuit type dough, in pinwheels with a yummy vanilla sauce. Those are my son's favorite, and of course we will have some of all it, too. I'll share the recipes later if I get a chance. Until then, I better get going.....I have a few groceries to buy so I can be prepared to be a cooking elf!!! Merry Christmas!!

Count me in with the "waiting for the recipes" bunch! I just sent Katie all my recipes so she can get the ingredients for our Tennessee Christmas breakfast.
