Christmas day has arrived and for the second time in a row I won’t be bringing anything to the table.
Each year we have either a Lunch or Dinner with my family at my parents place. We usually make something each to bring along but I just haven’t been
motivated able to find time to fit it in. I like doing it. I want to do it. But it just hasn’t happened. This year I was going to make a gingerbread cheesecake with a gingerbread house on top, and last year I think I was just going to do a big gingerbread house as a center piece.
I used to bake things all the time, before bubba came along. Even while I was pregnant with bubba, I was stick making birthday cakes, stuff for the kids lunch boxes, bread..but the desire has somewhat dissolved. So now, again, I won’t be taking something along to Christmas dinner, and I feel a bit guilty about not doing it when everyone else will be putting in all this effort, and I just show up to eat their work.
But! I did, however, manage to cook can okay Christmas Eve dinner for us. A roast turkey dinner. The turkey was pre-cooked but it still counts. Especially when it’s tasty.
What do you whip up around Christmas time? Any recipes to share?
