    Merry Christmas to you too!

    We had a big breakfast this morning, to start out our Christmas Eve day! Cinnamon Bread French Toast w/ peppered brown sugar bacon, and fruit salad.

    Lunch will be leftovers, and then tonight for "dinner" we will be at the In-Laws. Traditional Dutch Buffet (for this area) - meaning Ham on Bun, Jello Salads, Baked Beans....I'm bringing Spinach Dip w/ veggies, and a Cheese and Crackers Tray. Also, a plate of Christmas goodies, and DH is making his famous homemade ice cream.

    We usually go to my husband's cousin family get together (it is the only family of his where we live) however their special needs daughter is in the hospital so it isn't happening this year. So after we go to church at 5:30 we will pick up a pizza and then come home eat and take baths and get their Christmas pj's on and go drive around and look at Christmas lights!

    I think everyone around here just calls that pigs in a blanket. Totally different from a hot dog or sausage wrapped in a crescent roll. The "Dutch" Family restaurants in the area, and the Bakeries all sell them. My MIL makes her own though. They are very good!

    I'm hosting about 20 people for dinner this evening. We're having stuffed ham sandwiches, meatballs in marinara sauce, meatballs in a brown gravy sauce, deviled eggs, teeny weenies in a spicy ginger sauce, oyster casserole, and a few other things that my sisters will be bring with them.

    Tomorrow we'll be at my nephew's house for an Italian feast (and we're not even Italian!). I've making a huge antipasto salad and some proscuitto roll-ups.

    What does the jello salads consist of? Because my husband's family is Dutch and they eat orange jello with mandarin oranges and mayo at the holidays. Although the weird part is that last Christmas, his grandma forgot to bring it and the aunts and uncles were talking about it but my husband and his brother and sister all said they had no clue what they were talking about. Maybe they're just all oblivious? But she's brought it to holiday gatherings every since. I had NEVER heard of it before (my family's Mexican), but they didn't mention if it was specifically Dutch...

    Elise - I don't know that it's specifically Dutch, but in this extremely Dutch area of the country, it seems like no meal is complete without some type of jello "salad".
    Growing up, jello for me was always a dessert...it wasn't until I met my husband that I'd ever heard of jello being a salad.

    I have a Hometown cookbook from a town in this area (H'ville, for those who know the area) that is called the "Salad Capitol of the World"....the area is surrounded w/ muck fields, and a lot of celery, onions, lettuce, and other salad veggies are grown. Well, anyway, in the cookbook, at least 1/2 of the salads contain jello...even ones that also contain meat. :yuck:

    I've never been to any family gathering with my DH that didn't include at least one type of jello.

    What's for dinner? Way too much! It was so good, though. I supplied a lot of goodies including the banket and my award winning double chocolate peppermint cookies, profiterole puffs, peppermint swirl cookies, peanut butter cookies dipped in chocolate and powdered sugar, and molasses cookies. There was no jello salad.
