    My DH is working this Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. His eldest daughter can't come home from New Mexico this year and his younger daughter, well...don't know what his younger daughter plans. So....

    DH and I will be celebrating Christmas tomorrow. We'll have a nice, quiet day with our animals, doing whatever we feel like.

    In the evening, DH will barbeque us a brisket [​IMG] I'll make mashed taters, corn on the cob, yeast rolls, and sweet tater pie to go with it. The dogs will feast on steak, the kitties will get tuna and the chooks, scrambled eggs.

    On Friday I'll make an enchilada bake and my secret recipe New York style cheesecake for DH to take to work for the all the officers working the holiday.

    Merry Christmas y'all!! [​IMG]

    What are your plans?

    Quote:NO!! Don't do that. I want all the brisket to myself. [​IMG] Besides with it being just DH and I, I don't have to worry about cleaning house. [​IMG]
