Dennys World of Quotes: Christmas: Funny and Thoughtful Christmas Quotes and Short Poems





Dennys World of Quotes: Christmas: Funny and Thoughtful Christmas Quotes and Short Poems: From Denny:  Well, now that we have finished Christmas breakfast at our house it's time to roll out these fun Christmas quotes and Christmas poems for you and yours to enjoy!

Oh, how rude of me not to give you the Christmas breakfast menu:  a Dutch Baby Oven Pancake with spiced cooked apples and a side of Honeysuckle Italian style ground Turkey made into a sausage which I spiced up extra with some seasoned brown rice, smokey paprika, garlic and extra virgin olive oil before shaping into small patties and cooking on the stovetop.  Yeah, it's a tough day at our house all right. :)

And, yes, I made the roast turkey yesterday since we like to celebrate Christmas Eve as well so that pressure is non-existent.  Made a wonderful wet rub for the turkey that sat a day uncovered in the fridge to marinate:  rubbed under the skin and on top with a mixture of red moscato wine, extra virgin oil, and lovely spices and herbs like marjoram, rosemary, sage, ginger, sea salt, black pepper, smokey paprika, garlic powder, a touch of lite soy sauce and more.  Blanched the green beans earlier in the week so all that needs to be done today is to heat them up in clarified butter and some spices as a side dish.  All the cooking left is to bake the Louisiana sweet potatoes which are a divine dish in themselves they are so sweet! ....

From Denny:  The hectic holidays are almost upon us and it sure comes in handy to have a few easy dishes like this to bake when people gather for any reason from the holidays to Saturday night football!  Breakfast casseroles come in handy when you have a house full of family and you need something you can just pop into the oven while you make coffee and slice some fruit.

This casserole comes from Dr. Ashley Lucas who was thoughtful enough to give it as a hostess gift to a friend who hosted a football night gathering.  That hostess sure was delighted to find a ready to go breakfast waiting in the refrigerator that all she had to do was bake and serve the next morning.  A great idea as Christmas food gifts too!

From Denny:  Here is an easy recipe perfect for those busy work days as much as it is for special gatherings like Sunday dinner and the holidays that is a crowd pleaser.  This easy long time American favorite comfort food recipe comes from Marti Didier who works full time yet she still creates time to give community service.  

Didier proudly comments she "come from a family of old-fashioned, traditional, good cooks, and, as a result, has always taken time to embrace the old-fashioned way of cooking."  Didier often gives out this recipe for bridal gifts and also shares it at wedding showers in addition to smart cooking tips for new brides.

When busy with a career the usual choice for cooking is to start several dishes before you leave the house, turning off the stove, then return hours later after work to finish the cooking.  This is where a slow cooker sure comes in handy so you don't have to jump through so many hoops just to get a quality inexpensive meal on the table for your family...
