It's the other white meat......
Another Banner Christmas !!!
Brunch well exceedingly well if I do say so myself... but not with out the help of my sister's contribution Sausage & Egg Casserole... and my sister in law N 's Lasagna....Umm Umm Good.
Here is a list of what brunch consisted of
(8lbs !) of Maple Bacon
(L's )Sausage & Egg Casserole
Pancakes/ w REAL Maple Syrup
Giant Asst Muffins
Mini and reg English Muffins
Assorted jams and jelly
Cheese ball/ Crackers
Three different coffee cakes
I had three different lunch meats ready, that I never had to open.. everyone was stuffed
When it comes to food...We do not mess around...Nor did we spare the pork products !
We Italians take our food seriously.....
To think.... Mamma was upset that we didn't "Maka da cheesacaka ! "
That my friends ,could very well have put us over the top.
My Father in law and Brother in law were here and at the appointed time,we spoke with Mr R's Sister in England via Internet.... I know it was going to be a rough Christmas for her, being so far from home... I'm glad we had the chance to connect.
M2 & M called and got to talk to everyone... It was good to hear their voices...
Maria's Boyfriend brought over his PlayStation Sing Star... basically a Karaoke type thing that allows you to not only make a fool of yourself singing along with the music.. it also records it for posterity.... GREAT !!!
Now THAT is some hilarious stuff to watch...
The Nieces and Nephews were buried knee deep in their toys and clothes... THEY are the ones that make Christmas so darn fun... the looks on their faces are simply priceless....I could eat them up.
Things have finally started to wind down... Mr R is listening to his new Trisha Yearwood C.D. and reading his Mario Batali Cook book... Mamma is watching her Italian program, and I have finished picking up a bit..... at the ready for my P.J's.....
I know that if your Christmas was even 1/2 as good as mine... Then you too are blessed...
Peace Out Homeys...
I had to do A LOT of wrapping.... Before AND After Christmas !
