Christmas Re-cap

Wednesday  at noon we got a phone call from our upper management at work that we could go home for the day 🙂  I actually ended up being the only one who went home, the guys I work with had something go wrong they needed to fix.

Amy’s Vegetable Pocket, Chocolate Vitasoy and sliced apple slices with cashew butter (inspired by Brooke)  Really delicious and filling lunch 🙂

In the afternoon me, my mom and dad, and the two dogs drove out to a beach to walk them.  Well, let them loose.  We walked for about an hour, it was pretty cold out but the dogs loved it.  They ran around the whole time bumping into each other, rolling around havin’ a great old time.  Then mom and dad dropped me off and I showered, then made these cinnamon buns for breakfast on Christmas morning.  I subbed in spelt/kamut flour, and walnuts instead of pecans (that’s all there was in the cupboard).

The family watched a couple Christmas movies, opened our stocking gifts, then called it a night!

And then we opened gifts!  I got lots of great stuff 🙂  It didn’t really feel so much like Christmas though, for some reason.

Appetizers, Coors Light and then nut loaf (yum!), potato, carrots, corn, cranberry sauce, turnip, brussel sprouts/parsnips, mustard pickles, homemade roll- WOW I was full. 


Then they pulled out Bailey’s Cheesecake,peanut butter balls, coffee.  Ugh I was so full after haha.



Today I relaxed, slept in, watched SATC episodes.  Then for supper we went back to my parents’, where we always do an hors d’oeuvres-type deal for supper on Boxing Day.  A  lot of the stuff had meat in it, but mom/dad also got some  things for me like Spanakopita, Vegetable Spring Rolls, Deviled eggs (making two before bacon was added), Amy’s Pesto Pizza, veggies, hummus, etc.  And then for dessert was leftovers from the night before + lots of chocolates etc.

    Three Questions:
    1. Why does your salad always look so good?
    2. Anything decent in the gift pack from Lush?
    3. Yellow bag from Winners?

  8. Oh. You got some great gifts! We love our little cuissinart mixer — it is so incredibly useful and so easy to clean. We’ve thought about buying it a twin sister. 🙂

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog dearest fellow Canadian! 🙂 And Dynamite shirt twin, apparently. You must have good taste in fashion 😉 haha

    I’m pretty envious of the giant cookbook haul you got for Christmas. I’m also thinking I missed out big time by not having cinnamon buns on Christmas morning, that seems to be a pretty darn common tradition!
