It’s Christmas and one of my favorite times of the year, to prepare fun food and eat it all! I love entertaining with family and friends because of the laughs and memories we share together.
Yesterday before my husband, kids and I left my sister-in-law’s house in Minnesota, Miss E and I stopped at Byerly’s (my favorite Minnesota grocery store) to buy some extra special ingredients for a few recipes to prepare while we stay at our North Dakota family farm. Tomorrow on Christmas Day, I will be serving a few of these recipes. Others I served earlier this month at our annual Christmas party for customers and more I will make for New Years Eve with friends.
Or Miss E’s favorite to make, Fruit pizza…
Or the ultimate Party Punch, they are all featured on The Real Farmwives and Friends for Easy Christmas Party Recipes. Check it out and let me know your favorite party recipe. I am always looking for one or two new recipes to try!
Now I’m off to quickly get ready for Christmas Eve church with my family. We have four generations of family that all go together to our small town Lutheran church. Tonight we will feast on lutefisk, an old Norwegian tradition, spare ribs, riced potatoes, Brussel sprouts, lefse (which we made last night) and many more traditional foods we eat every Christmas Eve. Then we sing together in our own family Christmas program, with the Christmas story in Luke read by my dad, followed by gift opening. I am thankful for the abundance of food, recipes and drinks we have to enjoy as we celebrate our faith and personal Savior, Jesus. Merry Christmas!
