Hard to believe....

that Christmas is RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!!  Where does the year go!  My house is all decorated and I am ready, but I just can't believe it's come around so quick!  Today I'm linking up with my fellow fashionistas from the Style Me Challenges to share my favorite holiday meal!  These days, any holiday meal I share surrounded by my family is my favorite because... I get a good meal!!  HAHAHAHA!!

This solitary life is the pits when it comes to eating.  Some don't believe I eat....but I do!!  It might not be the healthiest meals on the planet, but it's food.  So what if I tend to live on quesadillas, rice, and cereal MOST days!  On Sundays, because I have the time, I'll try to make an actual meal...usually salmon or chicken.  I mentioned in a previous post /here/ that I don't really like cooking for myself because by the time I spend all the time preparing the meal, I hardly want to eat it!!  Ugh...but anyway...back to our regularly scheduled program!!

My favorite holiday meal is probably Christmas day dinner, because, ALL of my family eats it together. With my sisters married, some time is spent with their in-laws during each of the holidays.  But for the past, I don't know how many years now, we've all spent Christmas day together at my sister's house.  The gathering includes my Mom and Dad, my oldest sister her husband and three boys, my sister and her two twin girls, my sister and her husband (the hosts!) and their two girls.  It also includes my Aunt and Uncle (my dad's brother) and their young son.  This tight-knit group is what I consider my immediate family.  And this is the only time throughout the year that we are ALL  together sharing a holiday meal.

Usually it's lots of different apps, we don't have at our typical get-togethers, most times, Prime Rib for dinner....and of course drinks!!  It's just a really crazy, fun time spent together talking, laughing and often reminiscing!  And since last year, it's become our most comfortable meal.  The "good" china and gobblets may be out but we're all cozy in our PJ's!!  Actually this might also be a big reason why it's my fave!!  :)

And I don't have a pic of all of us eating out Christmas dinner but I do have a pic of all of us in our PJs!  My family just might kill me!!  :)

Wishing you all the happiest of holidays!!  Filled with a meal shared with the ones you love, lots of fun and good cheer!
