chicken noodle soup with homemade biscuits. For the soup, I sauteed celery and an onion and added it to the soup. I think I also added oregano and basil, but found I didn't need to.
sauteed mushroom cream soup and a baguette. Her recipe for sauteed mushrooms is fabulous as well.
Wednesday: Christmas Eve
Chinese food- kung pao chicken, lettuce wraps, rice, fortune cookies. Later that night after our festivities, we will have hot chocolate with peppermint whip cream magic and scones. I LOVED when my mom made scones. We did them just like this except my mom always made her own dough. This is much easier with the rhodes rolls!
Thursday: Christmas Day
breakfast: My dad always made amazing omelettes with everything in them. I was thinking about fly off the plate pancakes, but now I'm liking this Breakfast casserole idea found at Simply Recipes and also featured on Make and Takes. I like that I can prepare this the night before. Of course, breakfast will be served with our Christmas oranges that are in the bottom of our stockings.
Dinner: Ham, funeral potatoes, 3-layer jello, rolls, punch, this is what my family usually had on Christmas Day.
