Hey, Let’s Talk! A Christmas Miracle by Van Reech

I’m having a real good Christmas week – one of the best ever – and I hope all of you are, too. M y Daughter and Granddaughter came down with friends to share presents and Christmas Eve Dinner. I did my standard roast turkey and Mama’s cornbread dressing but the kids brought scalloped potatoes, macaroni and cheese, spinach soufflé and a big ham. Whow! Surprisingly we had few leftovers because several guests stopped by to “snack”. That’s just fine because now I need to start getting ready for New Years with another ham, boiled cabbage, a big pot of “Hoppin’ John” blackeyed pea jambalaya and, of course, a good skillet of cornbread. I may do ‘hot water cornbread’ this year?

But the ‘Christmas Miracle’ from the title happened the Friday before. I host a coffee group on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at The Mansfield Female College Museum. On Fridays we do a devotional (to make up for all the gossip earlier in the week!). Well, at this devotional we each talked about our favorite Christmas Hymn and Riemer Calhoun and Tommy Craig actually sang their favorite, ole South Louisiana singer Charles Brown’s ‘Please Come Home For Christmas’. The rest of us thankfully just read our selection. Deborah Stewart always makes us sausage and biscuits to go with our coffee but this special Friday she also made us omelets – what a treat!
