12 Days of Dinner

It's been delightful having my Favorite Sister here for the holidays. She and Miss Munchkin made dinner for us on Christmas Day. The menu was based on the song, The Twelve Days of Christmas. The girls planned, shopped and prepared it all by themselves. When it came time to serve the meal, they burst into song and unveiled each dish as they sang the corresponding line in the song.

Here are a few of the highlights:

"Turtle" Doves um, turtles

Calling Birds (bird nest cookies - get it?)

French hens

Geese-a-laying, of course

marshmallows for the hot chocolate (Maids-a-Milking)

Lord's a Leaping (rich, royal fudge)

fried doughnuts for the Golden Rings

And a "Cornish hen in a broccoli tree"
(with pears on the side)

Dinner was delicious.

Next year's Dinner: "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"
