It's Christmas Eve and I'm up before the chickens. It's usually on Christmas morning that I'm up long before it gets light but this year, it's coming a day early. As much as I wish I could say that outside my window it looks like the photo above, all I can see are puddles from yesterday's rain. It's going to be cold today, 45 degrees is the high but no white stuff.
We usually go out to breakfast on Christmas Eve morning and then head to Barnes and Noble for our annual magazine and book shopping event before heading home to pop the ham in the oven and prepare for our evening buffet. This year, however, we did our Barnes and Noble shopping over the weekend because we are having friends over for brunch. So I have two sets of Christmas Eve menus in the works.
Christmas Eve Brunch
Sausage and Hash Brown Casserole
Orange Juice Mimosas Coffee
Christmas Eve Buffet
Baked Ham with Pineapple
Christmas Cocktails and Faux Champagne
Vanilla Mousse in Chocolate Cordial Cups
In a word...yummy!
