I don’t know if this is considered a Christmas Carol, but my favorite song that is usually sung at Christmas is O HOLY NIGHT and my favorite version is the one sung by Sandy Patti. I get chills just thinking about it. And now I want to hear it! Think I’ll go put it in. Ha.
Are there any foods that you only have a Christmas dinner?
Not really. We typically have the traditional Christmas feast. But my all time favorite is my mother’s Swedish Meatballs. You simply can’t beat them!
Could you please share a family favorite recipe?
1 lb. Ground meat (the kind with the most fat tastes better!)
3 slices of bread toasted then ground in the blender to make bread crumbs
1/3 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of pepper
Mix all up and roll into balls. (NOTE: The mixture should be very moist. Sometimes the breadcrumbs make it a little dry. Just add a little more milk to make the mixture moist.)
Bake at 425 for 20 minutes
1 package of brown gravy
1 ¼ cups of water
Put meatballs into a big pot and then pour the prepared gravy over them and let the mixture simmer until you’re ready to eat it.
When we grow-up our family traditions change to join with our spouse’s traditions. What traditions do you have that are different from when you were growing up?
My husband likes to celebrate Christmas Day at home. He wants to wake up in our house on Christmas morning and stay here. I don’t particularly care, but that’s what he wants to do. So, we celebrate Christmas with my family on Christmas Eve morning and day and then his family on Christmas Eve night. Then we come home and wait for Santa! The next day, Christmas Day, we stay home. Sometimes our parents will drive over and see what the kids got from Santa.
What led you to write a Christmas story?
I’ve always loved Christmas and love what it’s about. LOVE! That’s what Jesus made Christmas all about. I decided to write a story about a little boy who needed a heart to live, but was willing to give it away to help someone else.
Could you please briefly describe your novel?
Here’s a little blurb. To save a sick, orphaned boy, Anna Freeman must risk her own life. Little Paulo desperately needs a new heart. It's his only Christmas wish—well, that and building his first snowman. For the surgery, Anna must take him to a hospital in the city she once called home. A place she fled in fear years ago. Which means telling Dr. Lucas Bennett that the woman he's known all this time as a caring orphanage worker is really someone else. Someone with a very frightening past. And that the danger stalking all of them won't take Christmas Day off.
