Gooo oood morning!
So, I’m a tad late on recapping my Christmas…
But better late than never, right?
My family and I have a confession:
We open all our presents on Christmas Eve and save stockings and “Santa presents” for Christmas morning. This, of course, is not something I have a problem with. 😉
Before heading over to E. and Robin’s, my family fueled up on breakfast – which was a total hit by the way. Thanks Iowa Girl Eats for this awesome recipe. Thinking about making it again with a few adjustments. I’m thinking jalapeÃ±os, red onion, paprika, chili powder…oh the possibilities are endless!
Before Christmas dinner was served we had a Quinlivan Dirty Santa. I contributed a few good reads that my cousin Russ ended up getting to keep.
Just a little look in to my family’s humor.
Christmas dinner was deeelish. Beef tenderloin, corn soufflÃ©, salad with feta, walnuts, and fig + walnut vinaigrette, whole wheat rolls, garlic mashed potatoes, and greens beans.
Annnd dessert included: chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon-raisin-apple bread pudding with rum sauce (courtesy of me) and a festive cheesecake from Junior’s that my grandma contributed.
Caught her sneaking another cookie. 🙂
My uncle would be the one to correctly do it and then grant himself bragging rights.
Christmas this year couldn’t have been better; good food, good people, good times.
You know that ESPN commercial where everyone does ^^^ that little move and says Roll Tide? Well I swear my dad and Zach can’t mimic that commercial enough. We’re thinking that gesture might be a good celebration move after Zach throws a nice TD pass. Whadda ya think? 😉
A good way to wrap this up would we with a Roll Tide and wishing everyone a happy New Year!
