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
