Holiday Feast 2008/2009

Before I begin typing in this years menu, let me tell you that this is to feed the brood from dec 23rd to Jan 3rd. Yes, life pretty much comes to a halt for 2 weeks down unda.

Now, I still haven't decided what's gonna be served on which day, and there'll be a couple of days of leftovers spaced throughout. I also reserve the right to add any menu item I want to. Hmmmph!

Please note, with the exception of the Christmas fruitcakes and the puddings that have been in the pantry for 6 years, pretty much everything is made from scratch. No, I don't go out and milk the cow's for the cream... you know what I mean!

At this point there is no particular order, or rhyme or reason to anything; I'm just jotting down the stuff that I plan to prepare.

Ooooohhh... Is there room in your house for two more people, two dogs, and two rabbits?

No eating the rabbits!

Plenty of room, no worries. However the futon in the library is already booked for 2 weeks in January.

I wouldn't think of eating your rabbits, them buggas are way too cute.
