Welcome To The Revolution

I've been reading the holiday issues of magazines. (I read a LOT of magazines. Once, when I had only one child, a neighbor with one small child asked when I found time to read and I distinctly remember being shocked that she COULDN'T find time to read!) (Incidentally, I kept the magazines in the car. When he fell asleep on the way home from the store, I'd sit in the driveway and read while he napped)

Back to the holidays. It seems every magazine has huge sections on how to "survive" the holidays. People! The holidays should be about "thriving" not just "surviving". Its time for a revolution in the way we approach the holidays! Out of the box, everyone!

I'm canceling the Christmas Day Feast! I will NOT spend one more Christmas slaving away in the kitchen, isolated from all the fun. Instead ...

We will be having the Big Dinner on Christmas Eve, which will result in an huge array of extraordinary leftovers for lunch and dinner on Christmas Day.

Christmas Breakfast will be Belgian waffles, Russian Tea, sausages, bacon, Egg Casserole, hashbrowns, coffee (my parents will be here). All of that can be done the day before except the waffles. Heat and Eat. I have a plan!


Even the coffee? (blech)

So you're saying that day-old coffee isn't the best ever!?! Because I thought coffee just improved with time, like wine (which I don't drink either) ;)

Years ago my mom started having a Christmas Brunch. She put just as much work into it, but it broke that pattern of having the huge feast. Most years we have appetizers. This year I think I'll make a big pot of chili and some fresh rolls, so we can eat whenever w/o any fuss.

Christmas breakfast is always scrambled eggs and sweet rolls.
