Hubby this morning started trying to tell me other things he wanted me to pick up and I told him what I got was plenty. I'm having such a hard time getting him on board with the budget...I'm going to try one big monthly shopping trip in January and see if that helps with out budget...we spend a ridiculous amount a month at the grocery store.

For Christmas eve, we decided to just do crudites and other appetizers, like an all day thing. And we join our extended family on Christmas. The menu includes ham and turkey breast, squash and potatoes.

Brown sugar glazed ham, green beans, and scalloped potatoes. It's just DH, me, and our two small boys so nothing big. We will be making a lot of soups and stews with the leftover ham since I couldn't find a smaller one.

Just the 4 of us... We are doing ham with fresh pineapple rings, sweet potato, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing (I can't eat it-stove top for DH),cranberry sauce (dh wanted it?),gluten free corn bread, gluten free pumpkin pie, and gluten free peach pie.

For Christmas Eve dinner we had appetizers. This is not a "normal" meal but we wanted to do something fun and extra fancy. 6 different kinds of olives, a cheese ball, a mushroom salad, artichoke/tomato/heart of palm salad, caviar, various crackers, gluten free corn chips for me, and DH made gluten free chex mix! (DH was going to take us to a fancy restaurant but I wasn't sure I could eat anything as they are doing a limited menu for Christmas Eve so we did "fancy" at home. DD spit out the caviar and DS said "no thanks" after one cracker. So we still have 3/4 of the little jar left for new years.)

For lunch when my parents arrive we'll have a vegan lunch, since we're all veggie heads!

Cornbread dressing
Baked corn
Green bean casserole
Mashed potatoes with brown gravy
Yeast rolls
Veggie tray
Banana pudding

For dinner - leftovers

Merry Christmas!
