Christmas Eve baking and more

Baking Christmas Eve 2008 - bunsIt’s Christmas Eve, and I took a vacation day.

While I have been running around getting last-minute buying done, Janet has been filling the house with the amazing smell of baking.

Christmas Eve baking - Amish Cinnamon Bread

Buns, bread, and Amish Cinnamon loaves – I am truly blessed.

At supper we will again light the four Advent candles of hope, peace, joy and love.

After supper we’ll be off to the church for the Christmas Eve service.  It’s usually one of the better-attended events of the church year.

Tomorrow we will light the Christ candle, as the waiting of Advent will be over. And of course there will be gifts and eating, including the fresh baking.  No lutefisk or gammelost, despite my Norwegian heritage, but I did find lefse at Harold’s Fine Foods.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. My mom sent me lefse and some of her delicious fruit cake. No lutefisk for me this year either, Jaydah won’t let me cook it in her house, I thought about cooking it outside on my campstove but got worried about coastal grizzlies being attracted by that fine aroma, so decided not to. Jaydah made crumcrak? though, I remember your mom used to make that.
