Christmas Cooking and A Little Stitching

'Twas the night before Christmas, and I've been doing some cooking for the big Christmas dinner tomorrow.  We made some Southern Banana Pudding.  This is a new recipe to me.  One important thing I learned from my Mother-in-Law was never to tell a group right before a meal that you were trying a new recipe.  That is a sure bet that most people won't take a chance on it.  So I'll just tell you and hope it remains a secret until tomorrow evening.

The little pudding in the old jelly jar is for my Grandson, Daniel.  

We also made a new type of cookie this year.  These are called Hot Cocoa Cookies, and the recipe is on the back of the Jet Puffed Mallow Bits container.  These bits are something I haven't tried before either.

We also made the good old stand-by Toll House Cookies.

Here is another new dish. (I know...I'm taking a lot of chances here.)  This recipe is a knock off of Ruth Chris Sweet Potatoes, and I'm pretty excited about this one.  In a couple of days I will know whether these recipes are keepers or not.  If they are a hit, I'll share the recipes with you.  There will also be chicken, noodles, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, green bean casserole, "green stuff", rolls, apple caramel pie, Velveeta/rotel dip and plenty of other things.

While taking a few breaks today, I finished another Road 66 hexagon.

Everything is prepared for tomorrow, and we are leaving for Christmas Eve service in awhile.

 Merry Christmas to all of my readers, followers and subscribers.   I appreciate each and every one of your visits.
