Another thing that’s worrying me? The Christmas dinner menu.
All three of my siblings are getting married this coming year: my younger brother and sister in January, and my oldest brother in August. We’re having Christmas dinner with all these families and it’s starting to get crazy. They all have different traditions and foods they “just have to eat.” It’s like that Friends’ episode where everyone wanted the different mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving. *sigh*
I fear we’ll have too much food and too many random dishes that don’t go with each other. I keep making organized menus, adding stuff from everyone’s list, and they just change it back to their own traditional menu and erasing the others families’ dishes. It’s funny because they’re all like: “That’s ridiculous; who eats [insert stupid food here] for Christmas dinner?”
I already see myself cooking four completely different Christmas dinners. My mom said we’ll make whatever they all want—which is just fine for her to say because she can’t even boil water, let alone cook some of these time consuming and complicated dishes. *grrrrr*
