Christmas Dinner with Pampa

Ed Black (or as us grandchildren call him – Pampa) loves celebrating Christmas with a hearty dinner that brings the people he loves together. As a child, he remembers having dinner on Christmas day with his family.

“We would always hook up the horse to the sleigh and ride around the yard,” says Pampa jokingly. “We always wanted to, but we didn't have any horse or sleigh or snow.”

Today we get together each year to celebrate Christmas and enjoy Pampa's endless wit with the whole family, including his four children, their children and his growing number of great grandchildren.

This year was the first time in 13 years that Pampa got to relax rather than cook, and he was more than happy about it. After all was said and done, he sat back to savor a delicious meal of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cheesy grits, Brussels sprouts, biscuits and more.
