    Default Christmas Dinners

    Most of the years my kids were growing up, my husband & I both worked

    nights and Christmas Eve was no exception. I'd get home midnite to 2am

    and hubby at 6am Christmas morning. We'd open presents and hubby would

    go to bed. I sure didn't feel like cooking a large meal - so most

    times we'd just have an easy buffet all day.



    I'd cut up ham and cheese into cubes put on a platter with toothpicks

    (kids will eat almost anything with toothpicks!!) I'd bake cookies and

    freeze them starting right after Thanksgiving so I'd get those out.

    Usually had fudge, carrot sticks, celery with peanut butter and

    sometimes crackers with the cheese in cans that kids love to play with.



    Made for a relaxing holiday and kids loved being able to "snack" all

    day instead of formal meals. Then when Christmas fell on my days off,

    we'd have the traditional turkey or ham and all the trimmings. KarenMO

    That sounds like a good plan. And it was liked by all? I would love to do something simple. Maybe we can do that this year. Does not help that it is my birthday as well.
