Christmas Eve is always quiet with tradtional music playing and family conversations. The overwhelming pace of the holiday performances and preparations is mostly over, and there is time to reflect, and look forward to Christmas Eve services, and the most beloved day of the year the next day.
I have hosted Christmas Eve for nine consecutive years, and I have cooked for Christmas Eve several other years with the first time being in 1986-almost twenty years ago at the home of my grandmother; Nettie Powers. This is the house on Wyoming Street in Dayton where Brent now lives.
I would be happy to share any recipes. It is wonderful to have the time to cook great food and see it all come together with the complete setting of trees, poinsettias, candles, and fresh greenery.
