While most people spent Christmas with their biological families, I spent mine with our squadron family. I cooked for anyone who didn’t have someone to spend it with, or who wanted to spend it with their military family instead. I made a HUGE dinner, as you can see below, and will be sharing some of the recipes over the next couple of days.
This amount of food fed about 20 people, plus a few kids. And by “20 people,” I mean, mostly pilots (who are known to eat ridiculous amounts of food) and their wives/fiancees. I’ve always enjoyed entertaining, and Christmas was no different. I wish my husband could have been there (he was in Germany on a mission), but it was amazing having my military family to celebrate with.
