With less than two weeks until Christmas (!!), it’s time to think about something fun…the food!

When I was a kid, I’d wake up on Christmas morning and we’d have something special and yummy for breakfast.  At that time it often meant canned, refrigerated cinnamon rolls or something equally quick…but still yummy.

(By the way, my brother and I were weird kids.  We were never up at the crack of dawn; we slept in until 8 or 9.  We went downstairs patiently, seeing the beautiful, loaded Christmas tree…and went in the kitchen for breakfast, or a couple of times even to watch TV and snuggle before we opened presents.  We were so patient, even as small children!  All my neighbors and cousins would be up at 5 or 6 and pulling their parents out of bed to open presents right now and we were never like that.  So far my kids seem to be following my footsteps…I hope!)

These days, of course, our special breakfasts are a little different.  And so are our dinners (we used to go to restaurants).  They sometimes do take awhile…but they are so good and worth it to me!
