Haggy Housewife's Holiday

Growing up Thanksgiving and Christmas was something “other” people did…
Once I got married I was determined to celebrate them….

But as a lazy person, I had a hard time coming up with my own traditional dinner…
It is a work in progress, but these are the Haggy Housewifes holiday side dishes…




I could eat this every week… but I like to save it for special times…
Like when the sun sets in the west..
And the ants stop invading my sugar bowl.






Don’t make these any time ahead… they will fall flat and become nasty lumps… but when fresh they are to die for…



I’ve tried countless recipes for pumpkin roll…. None of them looked like what they sell in the deli… and since I have this obsession with having my food look as good as they taste… this roll was a battle for me..
One day… I was extra lazy… and decided instead of finding a plastic container for the rest of the canned pumpkin that was left over… I would double the recipe..
Not only did it work wonderfully… I didn’t have to find a spot in the fridge to shove 2/3 cup of pumpkin…




DH loves tart sour stuff…
No thanks.. but this is far better than the canned stuff



My oldest daughter loves this casserole..
I stay away from it,  I would rather over do it with calories with mashed potatoes



My oldest son could live off of chips, cereal, hamburgers and cheese ball…
I get to slip in onions



These are the best…
Another dish to save for special occasions




This is the only way to make brussel sprouts… loaded up with butter and salt… how can you go wrong?



I am not a stuffing person..
( do we see a trend here?? Unless I like it, I don’t bother making it from scratch?) my DH and a few of the dozen kids are…
