Christmas dinner is something that has been long neglected in our home. It wasn't on purpose that we started this tradition, in fact it was quite by accident…
About four years ago I had a wonderful holiday meal planned for Christmas Day. We got up, opened stockings and presents with the kids, played with new toys and games and watched many new DVDs. It was great! Great until one of the kids piped in with "When's dinner?"
Dinner? Oh yeah! I should get working on that. I turned to look at the clock for the time and much to my surprise, it was 5:30!
Well, there went that nicely planned meal! Everyone knows you don't start cooking a turkey at 5:30 p.m.! You'd be eating dinner at 9:00! We threw a few things together and had a regular meal that year along with a good laugh. It seems ever since, and never on purpose, the same thing has happened. I'll have a nice meal planned and before you know it, the day is gone and so are my fancy holiday meal plans! Thank goodness for frozen pizza and Lean Cuisines, right?
