This year, we are cheating. We ordered dinner from Boston Market. There will be a few things we add, but for the most part we are picking up the meal and re-heating it on Christmas Day. I can't wait since its less work for me. I'll make a nice big salad, we'll heat up some corn & green beans and maybe some regular buns. My mom will bring the deviled eggs and my SIL will bring a yummy dessert. I've also ordered a spiral cake log from Swiss Colony too.
The meal we ordered this year includes (with a meal that feed 12 people so we can have seconds, we usually have 8 people attending):
Sweet Potatoes Casserole
Dad, don't worry.....we'll have a veggie platter (made at a local grocery store) to munch on before the big meal too.
I know its a lot of short cuts for the meal, but I don't want to be exhausted and not get a chance to enjoy the day. Ordering the meal eliminates all the hard work that goes into preparing a meal.
So, we'll see how the food turns out and if its a hit, maybe we'll do the same next year?!?!
What are your plans for the holidays?
