"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Christmas Menu

Well, as you can see, as usual I did not have time to post all of the treats that I have been making.  I have been BUSY, and just haven't found time to blog about what I've been doing!  I made lots of fudge (I'm known for my fudge around here!): milk chocolate walnut fudge, peanut butter fudge, white chocolate fudge, white chocolate coconut fudge, peppermint fudge (my newest creation and my FAVORITE).  I also made peppermint bark, chocolate-dipped coconut balls, nanaimo bars, chocolate scotcheroos and russian teacakes.  Some were gifts, some (many) were eaten by us, and some will be put out at Christmas.

I would like to share my menu for Christmas, which I will be serving on Christmas Eve.  Christmas Eve is the day that I entertain, then on Christmas Day we will be having dinner at my brother-in-law's house.

Christmas Eve Menu:

Spiced Marmalade-Glazed Ham in Crock Pot
Au Gratin Potatoes
Gourmet Holiday Yams
Broccoli Salad
Green Bean Casserole
Fruit Salad
Rice Pudding

Dessert: French silk pie and fudge platter

Yes, I'm making all of it!  I'm so excited and can't wait to make all the food.  Life is good and we are blessed, in spite of some imperfect circumstances.

Merry Christmas, everyone!  May the Lord bless you greatly, and may you keep Christ in the center of your CHRISTmas.
