So this year there are going to be three Christmas Feasts.? Two down, one to go.
On Christmas morning, son Brian and grandsons Patrick and Kyle and I had a Christmas Brunch, which put itself together quite magically.? I was going to do tofu scrambler, but wasn’t sure how it would go over with the boys.
Then on Christmas Eve, Carolyn handed me the vegetarian quiche she usually shows up with very early on that day.? So we had both tofu scrambler and an incredible quiche.? At my sister’s family’s celebration on Christmas Eve, sister Maureen’s husband, Geoff, passed out Virginia Bakery Schnecken to everyone.? So in addition to homemade Christmas bread, we had a wonderful schnecken.? Plus a fruit cup – first time I’ve ever made fruit cup in my entire life – finding melon was a good trick this time of year.
So Feast #1 was terrific and fun for us all.
Feast 2 just finished.? The boys’ mother, Angela, and her fiance were here for dinner, with the boys (Patrick made it, Kyle didn’t) and Brian.?? I made two tofurkeys, roasted with celery, carrots, onions and potatoes.? Smelled fabulous and tasted even better.? Plus gravy.? Angela made bread.? We also had cider, tea and water.? And half a million desserts – sweet potato pie, pumpkin pie, pound cake, zucchini bread, grapes, and many kinds of cookies. A very pleasant evening, served buffet-style.
Feast #3 will be a much more laid back feast.?? Three wonderful kids and their mother, pizza and presents.? And a great time will be had by all.
