We had to juggle some with the significant others since there suddenly was a conflict with two of them so we're celebrating earlier in the day then planned but this way we can spend more time with each other and Nancy can also join us (she has plans that night). My dad bought a Christmas Story for us to watch, apparently when we watched Tropic Thunder for Thanksgiving it didn't have the right tone LOL. Too bad Kim already bought Stepbrothers for us to watch and I haven't seen that yet.
Adam will be cooking the prime rib.
Kim will put together the salad David paid for.
Andy alcoholic drinks.
Kim bought dessert and sodas.
Kathy is doing a veggie side dish.
I'm making a potatoes au gratin using velveeta and cream of mushroom soup and a sherbert punch!
Now Nancy and I were watching tv in my room because it was warmer the other night and surfing different recipes online. We came across Alton Brown's recipe for Ambrosia on foodnetwork.com and decided that would be fun to make. Especially when we read the glowing reviews. But all of the reviews said it's so much better with homemade marshmallows so guess what we're making tonight? That's right, homemade marshmallows! We're also using all fresh fruit, including fresh coconut and adding red and green jello per Kim's request. For as much as we spent on ingredients it better be the best damn ambrosia ever! We'll let you know how it turns out, LOL.
I hope that you all have a fantastic holiday season with family and friends. I know it's been a tough year for everyone. Remember, it's not about what gifts you receive or even give. It's about the love you share, the memories you make and of course, the food you eat!
