New Year's Day Dinner
We hosted the New Year's Day Dinner at 1:00pm today. It was a change from Carolyn and Ben having the honors as they have done so regularly for some time. Carolyn did help with the dinner and took this picture. It turned out O.K. with Grandma's Baked Chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, stuffing, fruit salad, green beans, pickled beets, cranberries, blue berry bread, fruit cake and pumpkin or cherry pie. It was well for Elaine and I to do this for a change since it reminded us of how much work is involved with a family dinner of even 6 people. It makes one wonder how our Mothers were able to do it when there may be 25-30 involved. And, yes, we will be eating leftovers tomorrow.
