Season’s Greetings! Hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas. I know that I was very lucky to have great holiday this year.
As has been customary for the past few years, Christmas Eve was spent at my aunt and uncle’s house with my immediate family, aunts and uncle, and cousins.
A spread of appetizers, including a really great roasted red pepper hummus and spinach and artichoke dip. Pretty sure I could have downed the entire vat of spin dip for dinner and been satisfied – so good!
Mom & daughters:
Action shot! Dinner preparations.
Hanging around the kitchen island.
My aunt is a fabulous cook. So much excellent food!
Gourmet salad. Loved the pom seeds!
Sweet Alexis and her rosy cheeks.
I received so many nice gifts this year! You shall see many of them on the blog in the next few days, I am certain!
One of gifts was a Wolverine Pillow Pet from the huz. Um, can you tell we are Michigan fans in this house!? We are both alums.
After a rather EPIC gift-opening-session, we enjoyed a giant brunch. Told you breakfast sausage is my fave!
Later in the afternoon the huz and I headed north for a visit with his grandparents where we were fed even more food – meat pie and pecan pie! We are so spoiled. We even brought some treats home – pretty sure they’ll show up here in the blog over the next few days!
Our late dinner/evening snack was a heaping pile of my Aunt’s sausage and wild rice dish (swoon!) along with some pepper jack cheese, and horseradish dip with crackers. Later we got into some cookies as well. I enjoyed red wine in my new stemless Mikasa wine glasses – a Christmas gift. Just love these babies! They will get so much use.
Hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season! Thanks so much for reading!
