Holiday Recap

Happy Sunday, everyone!! How was everyone’s holidays? Can you believe that New Year’s Eve is on Wednesday?! No? Good, me either!

My Christmas was really wonderful, surrounded by family and good food! This year, E had to work on Christmas… so my mom decided that we were going to have two separate dinners to celebrate!

Our first dinner (Christmas Dinner #1) was on Tuesday night, since we go to church on Christmas Eve and there really isn’t any time to have a sit down dinner. Our traditional Christmas dinner is filet mignon with all the trimmings!

And my parents totally rocked out the roasted vegetables, onion relish, and mashed potatoes. Is there anything more holiday than mashed potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts? I think not!

The dessert of the night was the Buche de Noel.

It was traditional Christmas Perfection!

Christmas dawned bright and crisp and fueled by bacon, eggs, and scones, E took off for her new apartment and work and a productive day.

The Cat and I were equally productive… in nap time.

Later in the day (now that we were refreshed!), we sat down to our second holiday supper. Christmas Dinner #2 was just as spectacular as Christmas Dinner #1.

Hello, Shrunk Chickens!!! Or Cornish Game Hens… whatever name floats your boat.

Marinated broccoli and my grandmother’s Greek stuffing rounded out the perfect Christmas dinner.

And, of course, we had Buche de Noel for dessert.

It tasted great and was the perfect festive end to our Christmas feasts!

 

So, how was your holiday? What did you do, eat, and see? I want to hear all about it!

Your Christmas food lovin’ friend,
