Christmas Eve: Brunch to Dinner Roundup

We have wonderful family traditions that have become a part of our Christmas celebration every year, as I am sure many of you have. All the precious memories of years past, when a song, a smell, a certain food can bring back the laughter, love and joy of the season shared with family and friends. Many of the recipes for the foods have been passed on to us through the generations from family and very special friends. I am sharing with you today some of the special dishes that we have enjoyed in the past and will be enjoying over this Christmas season.

Christmas Eve Dinner
We always have a Mexican Buffet on Christmas Eve with Homemade Tamales as the center piece.

Wishing each of you Peace, Love and Joy
As You Gather With Your
Friends and Family
Celebrate The Christmas Season
