Christmas Eve

What a great time of year!  I enjoy this part of the Christmas season more than the first few weeks.  Christmas Eve service is my favorite service of the year.  These next few days is a time when I enjoy spending time with my family and just enjoying each others company as we slow down after a fast paced holiday season.

So, on this Christmas Eve, we have spent the morning getting ready for our Christmas Eve tradition.  Service at the church then coming home to enjoy some special food we have prepared and then watch the kids open their presents.  What a joy!

Tonight’s menu features a recipe we found on the internet for my favorite mexican sauce.  Green Sauce.  It is Heavenly and only a few restaurants make good green sauce, and all of them are in southeast texas.  Gringo’s and Casa Ole.  It has been almost a year since I have had this green sauce so I began searching for a recipe on the internet.  I came across the recipe for Casa Ole’s green sauce.  Proof that there is a God who cares!  If you would like to try some, here is the recipe.  Beware, it is extremely addictive and maybe a “little” fattening.

Casa Ole Green Sauce
Serves/Makes: 28 oz    |   Difficulty Level: 1    |   Ready In: < 30 minutes

4 Avocados
1 (16 oz.) container Sour Cream
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 (4 oz.) can Green Chili Peppers
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
3 ounces Cream Cheese

Mix and blend all ingredients until smooth.

We hope you have a Merry Christmas!  Hope to see you tonight at service!

  1. I have and Arizona wife who feels the same way about green sauce. I’ll bet you she tries is when we get home-if not before. Thanks a lot from both of us.

    • We made the sauce with low fat cream cheese and low fat sour cream. I couldn’t taste the difference, which says alot because I am a pretty good taster of real vs. diet things. Hope you enjoy!

  2. I got online to find recipes for our New Year’s day get together and didn’t know I would find one on your blog! I’m gonna try it. Sounds like you and Sonya and the kids had a good Christmas!
    Have a happy 2011!
