Hi friends! It’s the big week, are your menus ready? It always takes awhile for me to pull it all together. I like to be prepared and make as much as I can in advance so I can spend time hanging out with my guests and not in the kitchen. We have friends joining us for Christmas dinner and they’ll be wearing their pyjamas. I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this before or not but one of our very favorite Christmas traditions we do each year is we stay in our new Christmas pyjamas (usually matching) all day on Christmas and yes even for dinner. Our guests have to as well if they want to come. Our friends joined us for the first time last year and enjoyed it so much they invited themselves back again this year :) It’s absolutely the best! So relaxing and comfortable that is for sure.
I don’t actually do a lot of baking because in our house it’s all about the chips! We are all salty lovers and love our potato chips. I especially love it because those are easy to buy! I tried making peanut butter balls the other day just for something to do and the whole dipping them in chocolate was a hot mess for me. They looked awful, sheesh! I should just stick to the chips.
