I made a new batch of Chex mix, sans the coffee with flavored creamer. I have gotten a lot done, still more to do. Housekeepers come in an hour. I've been cooking and planning to try and get as much done as possible before Christmas. Especially for the dinner where there will be 14 of us. I am having 3 smaller tables and will have a buffet style and have people rotate seats after courses just to keep it fun and make my father in law crazy. Of course that will give him new audiences to talk about himself to. I have made peppermint bark, Christmas bark, chocolate covered nuts and the chex. Breakfast is baked french toast, bacon and OJ. Lunch is tortilla soup. Heavy appetizers. Dinner is a Honney Baked ham (paid for by one of the guests), scalloped potatoes (a guest), homemade applesauce, puree butternut squash with banana, broccoli and cauliflower gratin, sweet potatoes with apples, Christmas salad (spinach, pomegranate, avocado, pine nuts,w/ champagne dressing), fruit salad (a guest). Candy (above) and other dessert (guest).
Currently, time to rip around the house and clean ahead of the house keepers, then off to run a couple errands.
