I cannot believe that Christmas is almost here. I haven’t even gotten my tree yet and let’s not talk about gift shopping. I have friends who are already done and here I am without even a list. Time to kick it into gear. From now until Christmas I thought I would share my Christmas morning, through recipes, with you and your family.
As the kids started getting a little older, I realize that with all the hoopla before Christmas day; the decorating, cookie baking, pageants, and parties, that the actual day itself was over before it even began. We open presents and the kids run off to play with their new toys and the day is rather anticlimactic.
That is when I decided to prolong the day. Today we get up and make a beautiful breakfast buffet, or “Meat Fest” as it has been affectionately termed. My husband and I work side-by-side in the kitchen getting everything ready. The kids set the table and lay out the food on the buffet table. Then we all sit down in the dining room and enjoy a leisurely mid-morning meal filled with laughter, stories, and yes, anticipation.
