Trying hard to feel festive about it, but kind of not . .
I am hosting DH's family for Christmas Eve, and mine for Christmas Day. We usually try to work things out so this doesn't happen, but (this is where I could easily skid off the Chowhound rails into a Dear Abby-style vent, but I shan't) this year I have both.
I have done Christmas Eve dinner enough to feel I can manage it, but how do I also prepare a Christmas brunch for my family (10 adults, 5 kids) when I am also trying to enjoy Christmas morning with my children? Can anyone suggest menu items I can prepare as much as possible in advance?
