My Mama Mia is Here for Christmas – The Kitchen is in Overdrive!

My parents have been here at the acreage for about 2 days now and my mother and I have already made a pot of Italian soup so dog gone large that I don’t have enough space to store the stuff in the frig/freezers.
After the soup, Mama started on her Italian meatloaf, full of garlic! We bake about 15 meatloaves and freeze ‘em and pull them out of the freezer whenever we get home from work and don’t have anything planned for dinner. They are a life saver!
Tomorrow Mama is going to make an army’s batch of spaghetti sauce (Bolognese style with meat).
I don’t know what she’s got up her sleeve to cook after that . . . maybe we’ll get around to Christmas baking. Who knows? I just know that this elderly woman wears me completely out!
I hope that you are all enjoying this wonderful Christmas season.
