Something got hold of me!

I wasn't going to get carried away with Sunday's dinner; Cliff and I don't need the calories, right?  Just a couple of pumpkin pies for dessert.

But as I told Cliff today, this is the only time of year I'm going to have a chance to cook the stuff I never get to eat.  He agreed.  And I pulled out all the stops.

I'm adding Old Settler's Beans to our meal Sunday.  I already have plenty of potato soup made for tomorrow, because like all soups, it's better if it sits overnight.

I made a cheese ball.  I'm in the middle of assembling Oreo Dessert.  There's a Buck Buchanan sweet potato pie in the oven.  Oh yeah, and I made a batch of oven caramel corn.  I've boiled the eggs for Sunday's deviled eggs.

I'm still going to make hot hamburger dip tomorrow, or tonight if I keep going.  And I might make a cherry cheesecake.  No, forget "might".  I will!

Somebody just shoot me!  It's like I got started and now I can't stop!

Don't overdo it!  You don't want your knee aching on Sunday!  Just got a call from a niece and she will be at my house on Sunday with her family!  So tomorrow I will make a menu and start cooking!

WoooHooo!  I can't WAIT!  Seriously, I'm on my way over RIGHT now!

Just kidding, but I really AM excited about Sunday...the food AND the company.  My crew will total 5, since Brett is spending the weekend, just so he can be there.

I'd say you have the 'Christmas' spirit for sure.  At our house there is nothing on the table except for the Turkey at Thanksgiving that is really good for you , but it all is sure good tasting!  We have to do in once n a while and enjoy it.  After all we do have lots of help eating it...we won't do it all by ourselves.  Have fun and enjoy!

WOW I'd come over just for the cheesecake alone!! I'm sure your meal will be absolutely wonderful! I hope you take pictures of your final results.
Enjoy it and don't worry about one day.

I'm like that, too!  I say 'Nahhh.....I'm not going to make _______' and then.....5 hours later, I'm wondering who I can invite over to eat all the food I just made... ;-D

That's wonderful...sounds like to me you've caught the Christmas Spirit!!!  I think it's wonderful!!!!  I'm glad you're pulling out all the stops!  I'm doing the same thing next week...  Have a wonderful weekend, but take care of that knee.

You are going to burn off most of what you eat just in cooking and cleaning, lol! One weekend of eating won't ruin your entire program - enjoy it, then get back on the wagon :-)

Would love the recipe for hamburger dip if you don't mind sharing it.  Looks like no one will go hungry tomorrow !!

You'll be digging into your feast later today. I'm jealous, I must say.  It all sounds so delish!  But honestly, with all that variety, how much can you consume in one day. ;-)  Have a few bites of everything for me, will ya?  :-)
