Christmas Breakfast

Category: Holidays | Posted: Sat Dec 23, 2006 3:46 am

The library has an annual Christmas breakfast. This has been happening for about 15 years or so. It's a potluck breakfast. The director makes egg casseroles. It's like baked scrambled eggs. He makes them 24 hours ahead and refrigerates them. Then he brings them in and bakes them in the community room kitchen. Everyone else brings something to go with it. We had sausage, biscuits and gravy, cheese and sausage, several kinds of sweet bread and cookies. There was a fruit bowl and juice and coffee. I made kringle. I made cherry kringle but I decided I didn't like how it looked so we ate it and I made a date nut kringle. It turned out much better. I threw out the directions and did it like I remembered it should look and it turned out great. There were only two or three pieces left. They put all the leftovers in the backroom for snacks and lunch. There is a refrigerator for things that need to stay cold. We had a good time. DR wrote a poem in tribute to the library ladies which the director read to start things off. We had a gift exchange. Everyone brought a gift costing under ten dollars. Then each person got a number and you went according to your number and picked a gift and opened it. Then, when everyone had a gift opened in front of them, they went according to number and everyone chose either to keep what they had or take something from someone else. I had two passes to the movies. Someone took them from me which was okay because we never go to the movies. Then, someone else took them and then someone else took them. I ended up with a chocolate pot (sort of like a teapot, only for chocolate) and some hot chocolate mix. The pot is two snowmen with brooms, etc. I took a metal basket, oblong in shape with circle medallions on the side. I really liked it. I filled it with pinecones and red christmas apple ornaments and put evergreen branches (small ones) around the sides. I put a green and red plaid bow on the front of it. Diane chose it to begin and Michelled took it from her. She told me she needed a centerpiece and she loved the basket and pinecones. The little apples just made enough color. I was thinking I should have put a candle in the center but couldn't think how to do it without it becoming a fire hazard. Oh, well! Maybe next time I'll figure it out. I know that they do make centerpieces with candles in the middle. Anyway, a good time was had by all. This was the first time I went to a breakfast Christmas party. Someone suggested that instead of coming early before the library opens for a party that next year we have a midnight mass. That turned into a running joke all through the meal. The director kept telling one lady if she didn't behave that she would really need that midnight mass. She has a good sense of humor and was making bad jokes about all the presents. So, I have to work tomorrow and then I have three days off and work one day and have five days off. I think that one day may be busy as people will have had Christmas and did their day after Christmas shopping and be ready to go back to normal before the New year. I am now ready for Christmas except for making a couple of pies. Oops! I got a gift certificate for a grocery store from the City of Prescott Valley and we went and bought a small rib roast with it. I need to take it out of the freezer and put it in the refrigerator or we'll have really rare beef for Christmas Dinner. Oh, and I haven't wrapped anything but I don't have that much to wrap. So, Merry Christmas to everyone. Dooley
