It was around 12:30 this morning and I got my butt of the bed. I needed to make sure I make the bean salad on time. My mom has a recipe for a yummy three-bean salad and I almost put it off to the last minute. This will be one of our dishes for our Christmas Eve dinner. The purpose of preparing this dish so early is to let the bean marinade in the sauce. I am so excited to have our fist Christmas Eve and Christmas at our place. I think we have been here for over seven years and this will be our fist celebration at our place.
