Well, I got a ton of food left over and don't feel like cooking another meal Christmas Day only to have more left overs. But I will do it. My girls were so helpful both with prep and clean up. At the last minute my younger daughter said she was missing having ham (I made chicken cacciatore), so I pulled a half ham out of the freezer, thawed it and stuck it in the oven just before we left for church. I made way too much rice. I didn't eat much as my stomach fills up pretty quickly. I did drink wine, though, but for only one reason... so my husband wouldn't drink the whole dang bottle! My daughters' boyfriends loaded me down with chocolate. It's the last thing I need. I mean, there is A LOT of chocolate. I thought things were good with me and hubby but he was reluctant to pose for pictures with me. He doesn't look great in them. This one is of our family and was taken by one of the boyfriends. Turkey, mashed potatoes and turnip tomorrow. At least I won't have to cook for a week!

@patgalca that sounds like our Christmas a few years ago. We had a mountain of sugary sweet treats when the day was over. Freezing the chocolate sounds like a good plan

That's just one day. I still have another meal to prepare tonight where there will be even MORE left overs.

I think I may start the day reheating a few cinnamon buns for breakfast.

It's a nice photo. I've been given a good amount of chocolate too.
