We are busy in the kitchen making all of our food for an early Christmas Eve. Baked beans might be a weird combination for most to have with Christmas dinner, but our tradition is to have the Honeybaked Ham, baked beans, pasta salad, my grandmother's potato salad (which is FULL of allergens), tons of appetizers, lots of sweets, Rudolph Slush and Apple Cider. We do not do a fancy sit down dinner, we just grab plates, fill them up and continue to pick and eat throughout the night (since we do our activities on Christmas Eve). On Christmas day, we open stockings and have all of the leftovers...which is great....one day of cooking, and the next day you are off. Hope your holiday cooking is going GREAT!
