Coffee Break

OK, this update really is more for my reference (because there’s no chance I’ll spill something on my laptop — notes on paper, however, are another story).


Last-mintue grocery shopping
Slice French bread for strata (needs to be stale)
Shred Gruyere
Chop pepper, broccoli, celery
Make herbed cream cheese
Bake cake
Bring up/clean coffee maker

To Do Today:

Get out serving dishes
Set up buffet (tablecloth, silverware, plates, etc.)
Finish laundry
Wash kitchen floor
Take spinach out of freezer
Frost cake (can actually be done anytime before brunch)
Try to finish scarf (ha! yeah, right)

To Do Tomorrow:

Prep strata (needs to set overnight)
Bake rolls for appetizer wreath
Charge batteries for camera/video camera

Christmas Morning:

Chill Prosecco
Chop apples for and make Caramelized Squash & Apples (Decided I need a “real” veg — I took the easy way out and bought the pre-peeled/pre-chopped squash though)
Make green salad
Make fruit salad
Make hash browns
Bake ham
Bake strata
Assemble appetizer wreath

I think that’s it. I should probably add “drink heavily” to each day’s list, shouldn’t I? 😉
