I guess I have enjoyed this menu on Christmas morning for the last 40 years….I know I was in college when we started eating this. I have so many wonderful memories of my parents – now deceased – and all the laughter and good times we had around my mother’s beautiful table.  The food was delicious, but the love and laughter were the real gifts.  This breakfast is one of our traditions, and my children, now 29 and 27, love this Christmas morning breakfast.

Spread the love..spread the laughter.
