GluttonyPosted: December 26, 2009
The past 24 hours have been all about…eating!
Starting with Christmas Eve dinner!
We started with some goat cheese, crackers, olives, and chips and guac.
I started with a glass of champagne and moved to red wine for dinner.
It took us about 20 takes to get the red shoes and our entire heads in this picture, but I think it came out well!
Dessert was definitely a special treat form my mom’s friend Lauren cooked delicious poached pears with homemade mascarpone and raspberry sauce. There was a lot more to it, but I can’t remember! I believe vanilla and tripplesec were involved?
Fast forward to Christmas morning!
Marzipan and peppermint bark that were both consumed by the end of the day. Mid way through presents we had a round of bloodies!
Eggs Benedict on a Portobello mushroom with a side of fruit salad.
This fruit salad was delicious! Kiwi, cantaloupe, papaya, and apple.
After brunch mom and I decided to do some yoga with our Christmas hats on and Sissy just wanted to play!
We lit the fire with what wood we had.
And we had some cocktail shrimp while the food cooked. I suggested we have a vegetarian Christmas next year because we can never remember how long to cook the meat for!
Then dinner was served!
We also had an amazing salad that my mom put together!
For dessert my mom and I split a gingerbread triple layer cake from Whole Foods and I also snagged the chocolate gnache from my grandmothers chocolate cake.
Sissy is getting into something. Got to Go!
Again, Merry Christmas!
