HH Saves Christmas

Goodness, the Twelve Days of Cupcakes took a lot out of me, but the cooking at the Diner didn’t stop!

There was cookie baking for six hours on the 12th with friends - Gingerbread, Daddy’s Special Oatmeal Coconut, Peanut Butter Kisses and Brownie Gems. Then a full day of prepping for Christmas with Art’s Special Sauce, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Chip w/Walnut Cookies, homemade Macaroni and Cheese, homemade Lasagna all in one day; followed by Spice Cookies the next day.

The rain set in, we hunkered down, the relatives arrived and then…HH saved the day.

Christmas Eve, before things really set in - lasagna and chicken fried chicken for those who didn't eat cheese or red sauce (can you imagine!)

The Diner kept cooking over Christmas, but only because HH stepped in. I was sick in bed so HH served as host, chief cook, head bottle washer and nurse maid. Hip, Hip, Hurray for HH! Fortunately enough food was prepped, so with a little help everything was fine. Had it not been for HH, things could have gone in a different direction.

The garlic bread on Chirstmas Eve, HH's first "save" of the holiday!

The Diner may be running a little slow right now, but things will be back up to speed in the New Year.

Happy Holidays everyone!
