Christmas Dinner Menu

(Mom and Tre' before we headed to swim)
(google search- the Neely's)

(google search0 Maya Angelou's cookbook cover)

I am cooking Christmas dinner and can't wait to pull it all together. I have flipped through all my cookbooks and talked endlessly with my mom. I am invoking all of these wonderful souls into my kitchen as I make my first Christmas dinner. I have finalized the menu and completed all my grocery shopping!!!

I just finished cleaning the greens...I didn't realize what a task that is (smh)

We are having:
  • Cornish Hens (Neely's)
  • Cornbread Shrimp Stuffing (my mom's recipe)
  • Crab Mac and Cheese (Neely's)
  • Collard/Mustard Greens (my Own Recipe)
  • Broccoli Salad (my mom's recipe- my husband's favorite)
  • Buttermilk Biscuits (Maya Angelou)
  • 7-up Pound Cake (my mom's recipe)
  • Red Velvet Cake (Neely's)
  • Egg Nog Punch
I may add shrimp jambalaya to the mix if I feel the urge!!!
So excited for it all!!!
