Christmas will soon be here! We are planning on attending Midnight Mass this year. We’ve gone two years in a row to the 10 pm Mass but this year Daniel thinks he can stay up for the later one. I’m excited about it; growing up, my family always went to Midnight Mass. Maybe we can come home and open ONE present afterwards?
It’s so COLD outside. Just ran to Walmart with the grocery list that hubby and I compiled for our Christmas feast. I had already gotten groceries yesterday but knew that he’d have a special list for the feast. Of course he wanted asparagus (almost $4 a pound!) and sweet potatoes but also needed a couple things like yeast (for homemade rolls) and allspice and more whole cloves.
We FINALLY put our tree up today. It’s rather skinny but still very pretty. I need to take some pictures. And I need ot address Christmas cards too LOL
Dinner tonight will be a new recipe, hamburgers fixed with bread crumbs, egg and water chestnuts, in an orange marmalade glaze. Yummy! And I’ll fix rice and a veggie.
That’s it for now!
