Welcome to Christmas Dinner

~~It's almost here. The wait is over. Or the rush if you like to wait till the last minute. Me, I like to have it done so I can rest a little before the end. So, I thought as a Christmas wish, I'd welcome you all to the table. The bow and bell are over the door to the dining room. The buffet is decorated with Christmas mugs and other gifts John and I have received from students over the years. The serving table is decked with poinsettias and crystal as is the dining table. Come Christmas Day, there will be eleven Steadhams around it and we will feast. John's sister-in-law, Rhonda, and I do the bulk of the cooking.
~~The menu this year is country ham, corn casserole, butter pea, sweet potato souffle, cherry salad, fruit salad, rice stir fry, carrot casserole, deviled eggs, and macaroni and cheese. We will dessert on chocolate chess pie and coconut cake.
~~Where ever you are, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. ; )


  1. Lovely decorations! And the food sounds scrumptious! But, may I ask, what's cherry salad?

  2. Cherry Salad is a combination of cherry jello that is dissolved in a quarter cup of lemon juice then mixed with a can of sweetened condensed milk (Eagle Brand around here). Then mix in drained cherry pie filling, a large can of well drained crushed pineapple, and a cup of chopped nuts. Once that's mixed well, stir in a container of Cook Whip. It's like a pink cloud of good taste. ; ) Glad you liked the decorations. It's taken years, but I think I'm sold on this version of the table. Enjoy Christmas.

  3. Happy Holidays to you, John and the "boys!"
