Prepare Granny's Punch at 2:30. Set out the "Snacks." Company arrives at 3:00. Reheat the meatballs, make the chicken in pastry at around 4:00 or once everyone has arrived, followed by the bread, chicken strips, and whatever Donna brings. Do gift-giving at around 5:30 or 6:00 when everyone is done eating. Have dessert at around 7:00 or when presents have all been exchanged.

The Chef's Comments:
"Well, once again I am having my family over for Christmas Eve, and my in-laws over later on for dessert. Unlike last year, though, I put off planning the darn thing until yesterday ;) Here's the menu I'm hoping to make, followed by any recipes I haven't posted here before (if anyone wants any of the other ones, let me know and I'll post them, too)." - Lisa
