I hereby present you with a food retrospective from Christmas Eve.
I started off with a late breakfast- around 10:30am. I was at my husband’s family’s house.
Leftover sweet potatoes with breakfast. As I said – they were the sweetest sweet potatoes ever! And I ate them cold. I’m ok with eating most leftovers cold; in fact, sometimes I prefer to have leftovers cold.
A milkless cup of multigrain Cheerios.
Lunch, which was consumed a short time later, was small.
Some homemade pumpkin bread, with peanut butter.
My husband and I shared one of these yogurts. I had never tried one of these before; it was really tasty!
Clementines are great citrus gems.
During the evening, we went to my husband’s grandparents house, for their Christmas Eve get-together.
It wouldn’t be prudent for me to have these spreadable cheeses every day (because I find them irresistibly delicious and can’t help but keep eating them!), but I definitely enjoyed my fill while I was sitting in front of the platter.
Something about food that’s shaped like sticks brings up the fun factor by a few notches.
I tried a couple of these teriyaki chicken appetizers. They were a nice balance of sweet & savory.
My husband’s aunt made some excellent stuffed mushrooms.
My mother-in-law brought a big dish of baked ziti.
Pumpkin pie finished off the meal.
