The log story as far as I can remember it is the peasants of one village were ordered to supply a king with wood, but one was un-able to meet his quota for wood so instead he made a cake in the shape of a log and presented that to the king instead, so every year after that the baker had to give the yule log cake instead of his usual quota of wood.

The log was supposed to be our dessert.

As far as I know there are two kinds of logs, Cake and Ice cream. There are probably more. Just any kind of cake that is in the shape of a log. It is a Christmas tradition. I don't know the story behind it, but I know in England they have a yule log.

Anyway, we bought the log as requested. It is actually still sitting in our fridge!

After the meal, we all decided we would save the log for later, and somehow we never got to it.

Maybe we will eat it for New Year's Eve.

Maybe not. It is in the freezer. It will keep. For a little while longer anyway. At some point we are going to want to eat it.

PS - Ours is an ice cream cake log.

ever, eggos are waffles you buy in the freezer section of the store. I use them all the time at work.

Me, breakfast is going to be cereal, unless MIL is going to be a little later then I will make a proper breakfast to hold the kids off until she gets here. We used to have pancakes, but hubby says it takes too long.

We have 3 kinds cookies, crackers, cheese & meat, chocolate to snack on all day.

Dinner, will probably be early this year, around lunch time.

Turkey, Stove Top Stuffing(yeah I said Stove Top), candied sweet potatoes, and I have croissant dough in the frig to prepare for dinner tomorrow, hope it works out, first time I am making it at home. Oh and homemade Jellied Cranberry Sauce.

Dessert, homemade pumpkin pie using fresh pumpkin puree with whipped cream.

Mashed potatoes
Sweet potatoes

Hey all -
I'm on my own for Christmas, so for me, Christmas morning is going to be a cozy, warm oatmeal, with butter and brown sugar! Its a little bit indulgent, but oh well! Its Christmas!


Time is the coin of life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it is spent.

I like to keep things simple and I love beef and seafood. I enjoy splurging during Christmas on:

Christmas Eve:

Beef tenderloin
Shrimp (just a few already cooked)
Steamed, mixed veggies
Wine

Christmas Day:
Generally the same as above since I bring my own meal. Maybe a potato dish or different veggies on this meal, and dessert.

We husband and I grill the meat Christmas Eve, the shrimp is pre-cooked, the veggies are microwaved - simple and quick!

Everyone have a Merry Christmas and some yummy food!


Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Each new day is a blessing!
