Not very neat???

I resent that. My wrapping looks just like that.

(I used a lot of gift bags this year)

sounds alittle like my fruit salad...except that I put in mandarin oranges and marchino (sp) cherries and some chopped walnuts, then I put a T spoon or so of mayo folded into the whipped cream. It doesn't last long!

I read Kay's post too. She is optimistic and looking forward to going home for Christmas. I feel so badly for her and sad too. I know you feel the same way.

LOL--- I'll bet you're an expert wrapper --- I do ribbons best, thanks to a 99 cent gadget, but gift bags are my favorite. :)

The stick on bows never stay stuck for me. I find myself taping them around the edge, and that's why I bought that gadget at the Ninety Nine Cent store. Fortunately, it was a gadget I understood how to use. So many aren't and I toss them into the trash.

It's no kidding. I'll make much of it on the 24th when I have no company, such as the stuffing, deviled eggs, fruit salad (I'm not making the pies, they're bought), and deviled ham. I can peel the potatoes, make the sour cream appetizer dip, etc., on the day before, also the veggie / olives / pickles tray. That pretty much leaves the turkey, gravy, reheating and finishing the potatoes, and the really quick and easy asparagus for the 25th.

My friend, for whom I designed this salad (smile) will eat almost anything but I can't get him to go for the mayo and walnuts (or walnut substitute) in this salad! He's allergic to walnuts so I can understand that part, but he won't even allow diced celery in the thing. I think I may have to, on some future occasion, make a small Waldorf salad for myself. To me, Waldorf salad is essential at Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is my compromise on that deal.

We don't have the sweets around in abundance on Christmas day so I guess that's why the big difference in the way I do the appetizers. Usually what happens is everyone has breakfast but gets kind of a late start, we open gifts in the early afternoon, and eat the appetizers (by this time of day I'm needing protein), and visit. The main course is cooking all the while, and after a couple hours, we eat dinner. The sweets come in pie / dessert form a few hours later.

What our appetizers amount to is a late, light lunch: it has protein, vegetables, and starch.

Salmon mousse sounds wonderful, as does your whole meal (excepting those Brussels sprouts, which my taste buds never have come to terms with). My mother thought very highly of them and served them often.

Brussels are a British tradition for Christmas dinner most people do not consider it Christmas if Brussels are not served even if they do not like them. LOL

I did not care for them at one time restaurant ones for me were undercooked ones at home were overcooked, I have discovered though if steamed they are just right for me. If I get my act into order I will add some boiled chestnuts to them and or put the chestnuts in the stuffing.

Your tradition sounds very similar to a lot of people in Britain. Mine though especially in recent years is not as healthy I will probably have mainly sweets (candies) or nibbles such as crackers and nuts for breakfast then cook dinner.

Christmas is a grazing time for me LOL

Am forcing myself to have breakfast today - an American quick one as it is late muffins seem OK to have mid morning not so sure at 8.00am but nearly 11.00 that is OK.

Then the documentation has arrived that should have been at work yesterday so will do covering letter and get in the post. Long story will elaborate at another time via email.

I suppose our dinner will be late lunch but then we will have tea which will be cold meat and pickles (onions, gerkin (dill) beetroot etc maybe some mashed potato.)

I will! I have been thinking about it. I'm planning on using a tomato cage, encasing in chickenwire to even out the ribs of the tomato cage, fabric finer than burlap around the (inverted) cages, sewing the balls on (after slipping the cover off the cage). At end of season, either a garment bag or standing zip-up wardrobe to house the trees.

I'll be at Walmarts, right after Christmas looking for red balls, no doubts. And as soon as summer is in full flush, nice, on sale, pots to root the cages in.

Contributions/corrections to this idea? Love to hear 'em.
