Day 24–Christmas Eve

Welcome to Christmas Eve!  What a wonderful family day!  I am so excited to have everyone together–husband, sons, mother, sister, best friend.  I don’t know about you, but I will be spending my day cooking, at least until it is time to do the stockings.  Yes, stockings for grown-ups, because as you know I believe in Santa Claus for every single age.  First up, a much loved family Christmas recipe:

Garlic Potatoes

  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 3 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Combine  all ingredients; place in a greased 12x8x2 inch baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender, Yield 6-8 servings.
