A Pre-Christmas Southern Meal...










































Have you ever wondered what you're going to cook for supper? Well, since my pantry consists of ingredients for Christmas cooking/baking, I had to get creative. I had some ground chuck in the refrigerator, so I pattied them up, sliced up some onion, and started on some hamburger steaks. (one of my husband's favs) I found some potatoes in the pantry that were still fresh, so I peeled and cut them up, and put them on to boil for homemade mashed potatoes. Fresh peas are always in my freezer, and you can't have peas without southern fried cornbead from your grandmother's black iron skillet. My husband always likes rice and gravy with his hamburger steaks, so I whipped some of that up too. We had a great supper last night, I'm sure you can see from the pics... Enjoy!!

Oh, I can relate to this question. I am always looking for ideas, especially this time of year (where food is everywhere, but not the hearty kind). Your meal looks delicious--you are a great Southern cook!
Merry Christmas,

Kelli that looks so much better than our meal at church of cheese and crackers, chips and dip, little hotdogs and meatballs. Lots of desserts. After our Christmas service, everyone brought a snack type food to share. Good fellowship and love to go around but we came home hungry. LOL. You all look like you enjoyed your delicious dinner.

Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family. Blessings and love for the New Year.

Christmas Cheers...Jeanne
