Starting today we would like to share one recipe and one memory of our childhood at Christmas. Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories as we reminisce of beautiful times shared with our family. We seem to be better for having, in spirit, becoming a child again at Christmas time.

I really have to say we have truly had great Christmas’s growing up. They could be a little dysfunctional at times, but our mama and daddy made sure we did not go without on Christmas. We always had plenty of goodies and beautiful gifts under the tree. One of our favorite goodies was the Almighty Sausage Balls. We loved them. Mama always made them during this time and us girls would devour every one of them. Here is our recipe for these delicious sausage balls with a little twist.

My one memory for today is our Aunt Eleanor spent every Christmas Eve with us and Amy and I would always get up around 3:00 in the morning and so would Eleanor. Amy and I found it so hard to stay in our room, but the anticipation of Santa’s arrival would be killing us. We would always listen real careful to see if he was still there and when there was no sound, we would run like the wind to see all that Santa had left for us! Boy that was the best excitement! Even as an adult I find it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve.  Christmas excitement is pure caffeine, no matter your age! Merry Christmas Grocery Lovers!
