Little C's Salsa

Hi, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. I had a fantastic Christmas. I gave some folks homemade salsa for Christmas gifts this year, so I'm late posting this because I didn't want to spoil the surprise. 

Not everyone could be with us on Christmas, so we are having two Christmas dinners this year. On Christmas day we went to my sister's home for Christmas dinner. Of course, I ate to much. We made a lot of dessert to cover everyone's request.

The Christmas menu for 2011:
Smoked Turkey
Smoked Ham
Italian Green Bean Dish
Broccoli Cheese Casserole
Scalloped Potatoes
Deviled eggs
Banana Bread
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Apple Crisp
Cherry Crisp
Pumpkin Pie
Apple Pie
Pecan Pie
Chocolate Pudding Pie

The second Christmas dinner is tonight, here is the dinner menu for tonight:
Glazed Ham
Mashed Potatoes
Fancy Green Beans
Deviled Eggs
Banana Bread
Chocolate Pudding Pie

Can't believe Christmas has passed. Now we are counting down to 2012.

What was on your Christmas menu? Please leave your comments. Thank you!
