Christmas feast

I spent hours in the kitchen on Christmas Eve working on some foods I planned to have on Christmas day. Inspired by my new Pioneer Woman cookbook, most of what I cooked came from there. If you don't have it, get it! There's some great recipes in there.

Here's what our Christmas day feast included:

PW's Cinnamon rolls (half w/ coffee flavored icing, half w/ orange marmalade icing) and coffee
So worth the effort! I made the dough in the afternoon and cooked them the night before, reserving half of the icing so when I heated them up on Christmas morning I had fresh icing to top them off. Yes, they're full of fat, but's Christmas! Plus, I used half whole wheat flour so I felt a little better about that.

Lunch @ my mama's = tons of casseroles and sweets

Evening appetizers:
PW's Burgundy Marinated Mushrooms
PW's Hot Artichoke Dip
Turkey and beef meatballs cooked with grape jelly and chili sauce
Beer bread (Thank you Trader Joe's for the mix!)
Blueberries & Strawberries w/ vanilla greek yogurt and cinnamon
Various apps from Trader Joe's
PW's Chocolate Sheet Cake
No bake cookies & other sweets

Can't wait to make those rolls... I can slightly imagine the taste of it, but must face reality soon... :-)
