Since we were going to spend Christmas Day dinner with relatives, and they were planning lasagna, we decided to fix a turkey with all the trimmings on Christmas Eve.
We had one of our heritage turkey hens. It was only six pounds, but still we had left-overs.
And of course, there was bread. This is only the second braided bread I've done (first was on Thanksgiving), so I really want to emphasize how easy this is! Give it a try!
Katherine made chocolate truffles, chocolate-covered walnuts, and chocolate-dipped pretzels.
And we were in charge of dessert for the Christmas Day dinner, so here's the platter that we took. In addition to Katherine's candy, there were homemade Heath bars and peanut butter brownies. We also took decorated Christmas cookies, which were not very pretty, but they tasted delicious, and that's all that's really important.
Now I need to place a moratorium on baking sweets for a couple weeks -- at least!
