Yes, it's hard to believe, but Christmas is less than two weeks away! Are you ready? I have been working on my menu for my Christmas Eve buffet, since my dear cousin is doing the honors this year and hosting the family holiday dinner on Christmas day. Thanks, cuz! I like to have a casual buffet for friends and family on Christmas Eve, and although I'm still tweaking the menu, here are some of the the appetizers that I will be serving. Enjoy!

And this is what I have, so far, on my main menu. And a friend just called me and said that he is bringing a Cajun Fried Turkey, too! Do you think that I have enough or should I add more? Desserts and breads will be in a separate post!

Since I've been getting quite a few emails, asking for some more bayou boogie, I am posting a little clip to cheer up all of mon cher amis. I know that the holidays can be a stressful time for many and hopefully this hotter than Tabasco clip of Horace Trahan and Rodney Bernard, playing Shake, Rattle, and Roll, will help to relieve some of the stress that is encountered at this time of year. Especially if you have a cold drink or two, crank it up, and dance to it. Let the good times roll, cher! Cheers!
Wishing ya'll a wonderful, happy, stress-free week! Merci beaucoup for stopping by!
