Christmas Eve

Santa is coming tonight, you been good?

I tried and that is all one can do.

Somehow I deleted my last post about Trisha Yearwood's Angel Biscuits so I'll go ahead and give the link to the recipe instead of adding it here.

Since this Christmas weekend it's just "The Man of The Place" and I, he asked if I would go ahead and make what he would like to eat all weekend. Went ahead and cooked him a ham with all the sides he likes and the one side I just love. For years I would buy Red Cabbage in a jar at the store because I did not have the recipe my great-grandma had that she would make for our Christmas Eve dinner. I researched various recipes and here is the one I have found that is my favorite so far.

READY IN: 1hr 10mins SERVES: 8

1 medium red cabbage
1⁄2 cup vinegar
1⁄4 cup water
1⁄4 cup sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 cup red currant jelly 
(Hard to find and I read grape jelly is a good substitute)


Slice red cabbage thinly.

Add remaining ingredients except jelly.

Cover and boil 1 hour.

The lasts 15 minutes add the jelly.

Can be eaten hot or cold.
It is also good on a sandwich with roast beef or roast pork.

Also did you know you can make your stuffing in the crock pot, well I didn't and tried it.

I have tried all ways, in the bird, in a casserole dish, on the stove and in the microwave and I have to say this was an easy way and turned out wonderful.

Yesterday we woke up to an inch of snow, which was so pretty and just put me in the Christmas spirit. Seeing how we are celebrating Christmas a week later it's been hard to get ready. I feel a little disconnected. This snow helped. But seeing how are daytime temps were above freezing it was gone by evening.
I went out and took a few pictures to share.


  1. I loved seeing photo around the farm. :) Merry Christmas!

  2. Merry Christmas - we didn't get the snow!! I would have loved a few snowflakes.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your husband!! I hope it is a relaxing joyful peaceful time for just the two of you!! lovely pictures and the red cabbage looks delicious. take care from Iowa

  4. Love seeing pictures of the farm.
    What is that red berry bush? I have seen these berries in floral arrangements.
    They are lovely!!

  5. Thank you Darlynn, the picture is a little misleading, it's my azalea bush with some winter color. Now that you mention it does look like it has berries. I thought the color peeking out from the snow.

    1. Thank you for replying. Still love the picture. Hope your day was filled with joy.

  6. Oh those biscuits look good. Though I'm still full from all of my Mom's cooking this week. We had snow for about 2 minutes, most of it was sleet. Love your pictures! I bet the cows weren't too happy about it though.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
