Sweet Indulgences Sunday #36

Merry Christmas to everyone! My gifts are wrapped and my baking is done. Christmas Eve is all about simple meals around here. We'll go to my Mema's house this afternoon and will have several different pots of soup and some finger foods. I love finger foods more than any other food group in the world! Is it even considered a food group? It should be. For the festivities tonight, I made Gooseberry Patch's Out-of-this-World Corn Dip and a pound cake. I also ordered a smoked and peppered turkey breast from an ROTC fundraiser. I'm going to heat and slice and serve with mini croissants.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the holidays and all the prep that goes with it. It's so much fun to see other people savoring all of the hard work you put into your food. So many of you have really inspired me this year. I have so many pages bookmarked that I want to try out for next year. More time to bake is on my Christmas wish list. I hope Santa comes through for me.
