So how did it go people? Good? Bad? Glad it's over? I had a little of all three going in the Christmas Comedy of Errors over here. I got up Christmas eve and made the best mashed potatoes ever. I'm sure you know the ones, you can make them ahead and they're crammed with sour cream, cream cheese and butter. YUMMY. Anyway, packed up the stuff I needed to take to my mother-in-law's and then left for several hours. I'm sure you all know the end to this story, the potatoes were sitting on my kitchen counter.
After making another batch, then making dinner and dessert for Christmas Eve and going out to see the lights, I got to work on one of the desserts for Christmas. Hmm, smelled really cake-y very early on.. turns out my oven had a hot flash and burned my cake in 20 minutes. So here we are at 10 at night looking for oranges to make orange cake. 7-11 to the rescue.
Christmas morning I'm on my way over before everyone else to bring the rest of the stuff and to get started with dinner and I realize I'd totally forgot to make the pie. Man I am just out of it. Thankfully there was time and ingredients laying around. Moral of the story, make a list and use it!
It was a good day though even at that so I can't complain too much. Look who Frankie brought home with her! I love this snowman and he's going to make a nice cheery statement on our porch next year.
