It’s Christmas Eve, and I’m still not decided about what to cook for Christmas dinner tomorrow. There is a standing rib roast in the fridge, but beyond that I’m still trying to figure it out. I have a vague idea of garlic mashed potatoes and herbed green beans, maybe some cranberry sauce, but I need a pasta of some kind to keep everyone happy. I have a fully stocked fridge, freezer, and pantry; I’ll be able to come up with something, I’m sure. Oh, and I have to make challah, for sure, or I’ll be in big trouble.
I’ll be out the door pretty soon for the first of the church services. I have one at noon and one at four, but by the time we set up and break down both of them I won’t have a lot of time between. I need to make a refried bean dip this afternoon. I decided we’re going to have nachos for dinner tonight and watch “A Christmas Carol” (the Patrick Stewart version). At least I have that much planned.
