Since we'll be staying home this year, I have been working on a menu for today.

Omelets and hashbrowns for breakfast.

I am thinking about a butterflied roasted chicken for lunch, with oven browned potatoes, I will have to look to see what the veggie will be.

Spiral cut ham. But just in case it isn't just perfect, I have a handful of brown sugar and a little jar of honey ready to drizzle over top.

We are headed to the inlaws for lunch. Mashed potatoes, candied sweet potatoes, noodles, salad and who knows what else. I know already that I will eat to much. Christmas only comes around once a year, so I figure on filling up.

But after breakfast I may not want any lunch.

I want THAT!

We usually do a big dinner at home but for the first time, we are going to my daughters home.  They wanted to share with the other parents too, so we said sure.  For once, we don't have to do anything.  We could use a work free Christmas except my wife.  She manages a 7-eleven and they are always open.  She wants to be fair to everyone so to prevent bickering, she schedules EVERYONE to do some hours on Christmas day.  Even herself.  She was there at 6 am to put in her 4 hours.  When the kids were small, my wife would be the first excited one awake.  She would lay there, wide eyed, waiting for others to awake.  After awhile, she would get fidgity and start making a little noise.  Then she would finally get up, and loudly make coffee and do things like open and close doors loudly till everyone was up.  I usually wanted a few more hours sleep and I think the kids did too, but once up, everyone was as excited as my wife.  I love that woman and the big kid in her. :love:

Needle to say the Omelets were good. The wife had a 2 egg with onions, bacon, mushrooms, and cheese. Mine was a 3 egg with onions, mushrooms, jalapeños, bacon, ham and cheese. The Hashbrowns were a bit greasy, not they slid right down. Now I need to clean the kitchen and get ready to fix lunch.

YUMMM !  Haven't had much good Polish food since I was a kid.  No old relatives left to cook stuff anymore.   Every now & then we'll drive to midwestern Massachusetts to one of the nice Polish places during the summer. My wife's a great cook, but the only Polish food she makes for me is platski..... or is it blini ??   I thought it was platski for Polish, and blini for lithuanian.   Ahyhoo,  I can eat tons of potatoes that way.  lol !

How do fry corn?

 

In a skillet, fry as normal.  Some like brown edges on the corn, others just till it's good & hot.

There used to be a Polish Restaurant in Ft. Gibson OK. It's the only one in at least 4 states. I haven't eaten there in a while.

Yep, it's simple.  Usually just a tad of sugar added too.
