  • Ugh.... I don't the damn menu keeps changing around here bc of my boys (dh and grandson)
    It was starting out traditional, ham, turkey and all of the trimmings.. (yes we do both a ham and turkey as traditional)
    now it's meaty lasagna with meat and cheese trays, veggie trays and a large (everything in it) tossed salad..
    (which btw was my idea all along...).. and tons of baked goodies...
    so as of right now it's my idea, but since dinner with the families isn't until the 17th here, I bet something is changed out...

  • Since we're Jewish, it's a tradition to have friends over and order tons of take-out Chinese. The Chinese restaurants are so crowded getting a table is impossible and a very long wait.

  • Usually a giant pan of lasagna...but this year we will be in Vegas so-my guess is a yummy buffet, probably the one at Mandalay Bay

  • I will be serving between 15-25 people through out the day, so I will have different courses throughout the day.

    1st ~ Antipasto Giardiniera, Toasted Ravioli's, Pepperoni & Cheese Platter, Italian Wedding Soup

    2nd ~ Lasagna, Salad, and possibly meat on the side.

    3rd ~ Ham, Scalloped Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Pineapple Casserole, and an attempt to make Pastel de Choclo

    4th ~ Cookies, Hazelnuts, Fanuk, Brownies and Possibly a Pie
