And more Christmas prep

December 11th, 2018 at 07:05 am

Yesterday I made one of my Christmas gifts, a big batch of sweet and spicy nuts. I am not thrilled with the result, but the recipient will probably not complain. I used a recipe I got online, and I should have called my brother and asked him for his recipe, which is sweeter. This recipe is more savory. Oh well.

I got the candy thermometer yesterday, but I may not have time for making jam today.

I also got the scarf I ordered for my friend P. I was a little nervous about it, as I wasn't sure I would like the colors and texture in person, but I do. So I will be wrapping that today. I'll meet him for lunch on the 22nd.

I need to start thinking seriously about getting ready for the Christmas brunch on the 16th. I have developed a loose menu:

Egg casserole
Creamed chipped beef and biscuits
Stewed Apples
Home Fries
Fresh Berries
Punch & Coffee

I think that will be enough. The group is smaller this year than it has been in the past -- five adults and two children.

Today I'm obligated to do a mystery shop and to pick up the boys after school, so I'll probably do the shopping tomorrow.

And I'll have to do a company-ready cleaning, too, before the day. Ugh. My least favorite part!

    Sounds like a wonderful brunch! Sounds like it is all coming together. The cleaning is my least favorite part too. Hang in there!

    It's amazing what I can find to do instead of clean!
