It's beginning to look alot like _______. (Insert holiday there!)

While my family celebrates something that looks a little like that photo to your left, I'm sure there are some of you that celebrate other holidays!
I COULD list them all here.. but there are actually quite a few holidays to list, and that's really a pain in my butt, so I'm not going there.   Regardless, whatever holiday you celebrate, have a great one!

Now, as for me?  This usually means I'm going to have breakfast with the family people.  But I've got a rather long list of what I'm eating here so I'm going to start on the 'breads' on Saturday.  And work my way into the rest on Sunday (aka Christmas day).  Some of you might ask.."are you staying the night with your family!?" To which I'd add.. "Yes!"  But what "I" mean is my lil at home family.  My kiddos and I.   After all, we're putting vegan cookies and flax milk out for santa and leaving him some water and carrots for the reindeer.. all good kitties shall be up in bed with me by midnight or Santa will not put anything in our stockings!  (And yes - we've got stockings!  The proof, look to your right.)

So, that being said.. once I'm done prepping breads (they'll bake at the parents house the next morning) on Saturday night, the kids and I will do what we always do.  Cuddle up, watch Rudolph again, put out our snacks for santa and deer, then head to bed.  When we get up in the morning, we'll have goodies in our stocking and something to open.  At that point I'll log some miles and head out to the parents house with my ingredients to get a head-start on the oven before the neicage-weisage needs it for her muffins.

So WHAT is on the menu-riffic?
Check it.
Cinnamon Rolls
Biscuits and Gravy
Scrambled 'eggs'
Hash Brown Potatoes
(and some fruit!)

(And later on I'll be rolling out looking like Tanta Kringle to do Kundalini with the sister)
Ok.. let's do these killer numbers, shall we?

AWLrighty then. That's about the size of this one.   (Not to mention my size later on in the day of course.)  I think we'll have fun with this one.  I've never made cinnamon rolls before so this is a new one to me.   The recipe I have calls for ... er, maybe I shouldn't tell you.  Nah, I will keep it a secret. ;)
It looks like I might be on a sugar high again.  Maybe I'd better add a mile to my morning!  Ack!

Regardless, I'm going to start on this on Christmas Eve.   So you'd better watch out, you'd better not cry, you'd better not pout I'm telling you why.
Merry, merry all!   Hugs, Kisses and good tidings to everyone.   Til you hear from me again.   "Yo ho the mistletoe hung where you can see... somebody waits for you, kiss her once, for me! ;)"
