Hello! Did you have a good Christmas? I sure did- and am going to give you just a little peek today at what I did yesterday- starting with what I ate.
I don’t really have a “tradition” for what I make for breakfast on Christmas morning- I think I’ve made something different every year! When I was growing up, my mom always made an egg casserole. I haven’t attempted that one yet- maybe sometime in the future. For this year, I baked some delicious eggnog scones and served them with fruit salad and scrambled eggs.
Alright, I didn’t really make the scones from scratch… they came from this magical mix that just needed water added to it.
(The local organic grocery store was sampling these last week and they were to die for, so I had to buy my own!)
My mom and stepdad came over for lunch. We made some vegetable soup in the crock pot (it was basically just broth, carrots, celery, onion, sweet potato, herbs, salt and pepper):
We also made sandwiches/wraps (I had a wrap).
Our family tradition for at least the last 10 years has been to go see a movie in the afternoon on Christmas Day (we saw Les Mis), so I brought a few snacks.
Greg and I planned to get pho at the local Vietnamese restaurant on the way home, but it was closed (imagine that!). So, instead we made some super quick pizzas using pita bread.
And there were a few Christmas cookies after that (but I ate them before they could be photographed!)
