Tackle It Tuesday: Menu Planning

It's that time of year again - cooking and eating all the once-a-year special foods you only get at Christmas time. And for us that means buying exotic ingredients that I will no doubt forget at the grocery store unless I have a detailed list. Sharing time!

My birthday is coming up on Saturday (28! Yike!). We're having:
Beef chili
venison chili (depending on how many people are coming)
white chili
corn bread
fritos
toppings: cheddar cheese, sour cream, onions, green onions
beer
cake

We're hosting Christmas eve and having:
DeuceDad's family's seafood salad
DeuceDad's family's tuna recipe
lemon spaghetti
caesar salad
some kind of dessert I haven't decided on yet

And Christmas morning:
Hashbrown casserole
fruit
pecan french toast

So good!!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
I worked in an Interior Design showroom for 11 years and while we just used what we had on hand (and didn't go out and slurge on furniture and accessories)... the paint job came about trying to figure how to merge the two "team" colors together nicely. So we just picked that wall to slice in half with the colors b/c thats the wall you see when you walk in the room and then you can see BOTH team colors when you walk in. Lucky the colors worked together! If we had two teams with orange, green, blue or something that would have been harder! lol
