1 day until christmas: christmas company!

the holidays give us a chance to catch up and spend time with our friends and family.  this is something we both look forward to- great memories, yummy food and lots of laughs.

my christmas eve is being spent with my lovely family- we are getting together with lots of munchies and treats and of course board games! cranium and scrabble are in the line-up for tonight! also don't forget your eggnog

i made a pumpkin pie for the occasion, here is the recipe for the filling:

gramma's pumpkin pie

14 oz. can pumpkin
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1 slightly beaten egg
1 cup milk
and a store bought or homemade pie crust!

mix ingredients in order given and pour into crust.
bake at 450 for 15 minutes or until crust is set(brown)
then lower to 350 and bake until firm- about 20 minutes

don't forget the whip cream! enjoy! 

as for drinks during the holidays, my family loves their wine.  wine spritzers are also a favorite.  this is a great recipe, it's light, fruit not too sweet and red- for the holidays!

holiday cranberry orange wine spritzers:

4 ounces of white wine
4 ounces of cranberry juice
2 orange wheels
and a splash of soda or sprite (depending on how you like your sweetness!)


we hope everyone has a wonderful christmas eve!
1 more sleep!
