I have never had the chance to throw a Christmas Dinner at our house as it was aways just Christmas dinner, not in my younger days either, I had to work every Christmas as Head Cook in Retirement Centers (someone had to cook for them and I always volunteer to cook because if I did not they would get store bought hamburgers) but I would spend hours preparing to feed them the very best and unforgettable Christmas, my menu I would make up and i had to fix for our 240 seniors and then they would have family members show up and that was always around 14 to 28 more people.
Turkey, Baked Ham and Pineapple, cranberry & pecan dressing, mashed potatoes with cream cheese, cranberries, yam and banana mello bake and orange with pecan sauce,hot cross buns, California blend squash veggies, snapped green beans with bacon and new potatoes. (remember now that would be 8 turkeys, and 5 hams) Now the desserts were 7 chocolate cream pies, 2 apple crumb pies, 3 lemon meringue pies, 12 pumpkin pies, 2 chocolate fudge cakes /fudge icing, 1 white cake/white frosting and 6 diet dies of the former ones mentioned. So keeping in mind I did all this in 3 days and by myself, so I depended whole hardly on Sysco products for all my ingredients, they are the best value for restaurants and delivered large quantity of food, and if it were not for then I really don't think that I could have did all that alone. Sysco Products are reliable, always fresh, and easy to use, like there pie crust in a box and the ready made pumpkin in the can and Sysco meringue in a can the diet foods for the pies and their cake mixes. I am more than sure if it were not Sysco Products I could not have done it as well as I did. The guest and the Seniors would always let the boss know that it was just too great and the best they ever had. ( er - they said that every year that I did their Christmas Dinners for 33 years)
