O Christmas Tree....and dinner's in the crock-pot

I love my tumbleweed Christmas Tree!
Most of the presents are wrapped and one isn't because I took the beautiful red ribbon off the hank of glorious sock yarn. I made it into a cake and stuck some bamboo needles in it. The red ribbon said, "Proud to be an American".
The rooster and hen are in the picture because I forgot to send them to my mother. How could I forget to do that?
Well, I placed them in the condo like decoration and....well....forgot. I'll send them before the new year.
Christmas dinner is cooking in the crock-pot, too! I'm having a non-traditional pork loin and sauerkraut dinner. Besides beef roast, this is a very favorite that I grew up with. I don't have potatoes but I do have a sweet potato to place on top about an hour before I want to eat.

Is there anyone else who is having a non-traditional dinner? Tell me about it!


  1. Sounds yummy!

    We are having our traditional ham and potote salad.

    Have a happy Christmas

  2. I love pork roast.
    I had Prime Rib roast, garlic smashed potatoes, fresh asparagus and spinach salad. Along with a Merlot.
    Merry Christmas.

  3. We had roast beef, potatoes, homemade bread (by me) a fabulous salad (made by me) and delicious desserts...eaten by ME. We had a good day with the children and grandchildren. I LOVE your tree. I have two Lenox roosters to give to my Mom. I want to keep them, they look great in my livingroom and are so pretty. Well, I can visit them when we go to Maine!

  4. Let's see... when we get the whole clan together (me and my parents, plus my husband and his 80+ relatives), it gets a bit... dicey. I'm pretty sure there was a turkey/stuffing casserole, sausages, waffles, candy corn (and marshmallows... the kids love it), salad, something pink that tasted good, rolls, butter, cherry pie, and dog food (for the dogs... and the under-three set, as it turned out).

    There may have been more, but the clan has a LOT of teenage boys, so I missed it!

  5. I LOVE the tumbleweed tree!! For years we decorated our indoor "ficus" plant for Christmas. This year, I didn't even put out any ornaments - couldn't find them here on the boat. But we did have a traditional dinner via a potluck with about 50 other cruisers in Barra de Navidad, Mexico!! Much better than the frozen convenience store burritos we had years ago when I forgot to shop for food.
