Holiday Preparations and a Christmas Miracle

I spent most of Christmas Eve Eve baking a cake for Christmas dinner. I have made hundreds of cakes but never one this fancy. It took me about 5 hours I think. ๐Ÿ˜š The recipe is Chocolate Mousse Cake with Raspberries on King Arthur Baking website. I also made a double batch of cranberry sauce.

Today I roasted the turkey, got it deboned, and made a huge batch of gravy. It was a 26.6# turkey so ot made a lot of drippings. I also made a big batch of buttermilk potato rolls and deviled eggs for tomorrow.

So all I have to do for dinner on Christmas is make sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes and a fresh veggie platter with dip. Oh and I’ll probably make a batch of cinnamon rolls for breakfast in the morning. Whew!

I referred in my title to a Christmas miracle. Remember that messy skein of yarn? Well, while I was making that cake yesterday, my husband spent most of the day untangling it.

I can’t believe he had the patience for it, but wonders never cease. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Merry Christmas!

  1. if you haven’t done it yet, and you’re feeling ambitious, try a Smith Island Cake – it’s only 9 layers :)
