thats a fun breakfast!
I'm just going to make some waffles, bacon and eggs for the family but will probable just keep visiting the coffee pot myself.
Traditionally there is no cooking on Christmas day since there is always a ton of leftover food from the night before. Everyone would get up (or arrive) at their own schedule and just grab what they wanted if they were hungry. Christmas Day is always Santa and the kids. Adults usually sit off to the side and gossip if it is quiet enough.
This year I had a cheese danish and smoked sausage and OJ here at work, Cathy. When I'm home I like making a baked sour-apple/sausage/cheddar strata...
We had or Baked Cheese Crepe's and bacon as planned, I only make these at Christmas time, and they are such a treat I actually crave them on Christmas morning!
