Sippa thyme



Last year after the
Christmas party
Paw and Maw
Started looking into
Where there lute
Was spent.
Only half ah turkey
Had been eating
Half the rolls were
Gone.
There almost more
Eggnog then they
Started with. And
The nog had expensive
Conagce and nutmeg in
It. They started on the ham
When Maw told him, she
Said truthfully,  I don't know
If it's because I am tired of
Christmas or am I tired of you
But I am sick of fussing like this
Every year.
Well this Christmas we gone do
Something about it. We gone
Slice the turkey and make salad
Serve turkey salad the night before.
Use the eggnog for yeasty breakfast rolls. Mixed turkey parts with sausage
And serve on fried potatoes.
Turn yeast rolls into coutons. Serve with green salad and turkey salad.
Mix all the liquer with fruit juice and put it up.
