Thirteen Things on my Christmas Eve Table

Thirteen Things about My Christmas Eve Table
1. Beef tenderloin and horseradish sauce!!! Oh my gosh. Never eat it any other time of the year and it graces the center of our table after church on Christmas Eve.
2. A ton of boiled shrimp. Cocktail sauce.
3. Sausage balls. (I know it's dinner, but, hey, it's my table.)
4. Honey baked ham. Honey mustard.
5. Rolls. The brand depends on my mood. I prefer the crusty kind with soft middles. I like to place my oh so tasty beef tenderloin inside one with just a bit of horseradish sauce. HMMM, Hmmm, Good.
6. PrincipalGirl's Sweet and Salty: pretzels and peanuts which have been swirled together in a bath of white chocolate. Cooled and broken up. Delish.
7. My dad's miniature crabcakes. Cocktail sauce.
8. PrincipalGirl's chocolate fudge: the main ingredient is jello chocolate pudding. My goodness, it is good.
9. Gingersnaps; homemade. Pumpkin dip to go along with them.
10. Vegetable tray: carrots, celery, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes. A little ranch dressing. (Got to have something good for you somewhere.)
11. We call them beany-weenies; however, in other parts of the world, they are called pigs in a blanket. Of course, someone has to roll them up and bake them. I have a hard time keeping them because people eat them as they come out of the oven.
12. Sugar cookies, cut out and decorated by the girls. Who cares what they look like - they did them and had fun doing it.
13. Bowl of punch - fruity and ginger ale. (Wine chilled and hidden so the in-laws don't realize that's what we're really drinking!!)

i wuvv the Thursday 13 idea.. where did it start? suck at writing (my ADD shows upp there big time) but nonetheless I am trying to practice.. That said, I still havent figured out how to install a blawgroll or hyperlinks.. so naturally I can forget installing a Thurs 13 thingy.. Is it acceptable to write on 13 things on Thursday?
I like the concept.. cuz even tho I was in the trenches at The Pokey for 31 years, thinking of stuff too write is killah.. esp when using yr real name.. Anyhoo, I think got access to yr blawg from a comment from the only reader I have. (I asked her for good blawgs) So now I enjot daily visits here.. Thx.. That said, you can see what I mean by bean ADD in writing.. Even tho I can "teach" it, I cant "do" it! Soooooo if you ever have time to explain the Thurs 13 thang.. drop me a comment here, on my alleged/supposed blawg.. or by email.. Happy Hols.. enjoy yr delish freedom!

I would love your fudge recipe if you're willing to share...I've been looking for a good one, but have yet to find one that I really like.
