This year I cut back on the menu to the old reliables.
mashed potatoes with gravy
sweet potato casserole
green bean casserole
deviled eggs, cream cheese celery, cranberry bread, lemon coconut bread
For dessert: two made from scratch pumpkin pies, pineapple pie, pecan pie and cheese cake.
We invited nineteen people with only ten confirming that they would be here for dinner. Kind of wish they would make firm commitment one way or the other. We got, we maybe will come it depends on what else going on. Oh well, that will leave more for left overs for next week.
I am thankful that the doctors were able to put a stent in my mother in-law’s artery. She is recuperating in the hospital. I am sadden that my fellow author Dan Amsden passed away late Sunday night. He was a very ornery fellow to those he considered a close friend. Needless to say Dan tormented me unmercifully because he knew he could get a rise out of me. His wife Sandy scolded him once for doing it and he just smiled and told her that I knew he didn’t mean it. Next Tuesday night all of my fellow authors and their spouses will be having a celebration that we will honoring Dan’s life accomplishments at Chuck’s restaurant. Hopefully the finances will allow me to go.
May the Lord richly shower everyone with His mercy and love this Christmas. And may we all remember as we open all our present the greatest gift of all which is Christ Jesus.
