Mom called yesterday.
The kids were watching a video
for that part of school so I was
able to talk to her.
It was time to determine the menu
for Christmas Day.
You may have done this months ago...
but that is just not how we operate
here on our little street.
If you don't know,
My Mom and Warren's Mom
are our neighbors since the
Dads have passed away. We now
have weekly meals together and
all of our Holidays are coordinated
between three houses.
So...anyway...yesterday was THE DAY
to decide. Should we have ham and chicken?
Roast Beef and Turkey? Or some other combination
of the same?
We decided that we would do ham (Mom) and
Party Chicken (Me).
It was settled.
Then for some reason it came up with the kids
later and there was disagreement!!
Chelsea insisted that there had to be Roast Beef!
She was looking forward to that!
Jonathan wanted turkey.
Every Holiday table should have turkey was his
declaration of truth.
I called Mom and explained the dilemma.
The kids are old enough to care!
They have an opinion...and it is strong!
I will make a roast and potatoes with carrots.
It is yet to be seen if Jonathan won yet.
His wishes have been expressed to Grandma.
It is fine with the rest of us to enjoy ham,
as she planned, since we have had our share of
turkey lately...but you just never know.
What is on your menu?
Does your family have opinions?
Inquiring minds want to know!
Have a great day!
