Hello! Sorry for the long break! What can I say? Without a schedule I get really bad at actually doing stuff I need to be doing. I work much better when I’m busy.
So what have I been up to? Baking. Cooking. Eating. 😀 More eating, and lots of TV watching. I’m pretty sure I haven’t watched this much TV in… well, probably since summer after my first year. But for once I’m sort of enjoying the total lazyness.
So when I last left you I was about to get into some baking. Oh boy did I.
The next day I made supper. At least I think it was the next day, they all blend, so maybe it was a couple days later. It was a delicious Acorn Squash and Coconut Curry soup. It was soooo amazing. The coconut milk made it so buttery. I didn’t follow a recipe at all. Just cooked it up from what I knew about squash, and curry spices. Yum.
We had Christmas Dinner on Christmas Eve. My brother is an aspiring speed skater, so he had training early today. Watch out, one day he just might be in the Olympics (not this year though, he’s still young for a skater, and isn’t quite on the national team).
On the Menu:
- Turkey (not for me)
- Wild Rice stuffing
- Brussel Sprouts with Mushrooms
- Mandarine Orange, Pecan and Blue Cheese Salad
- Mocha Cake and traditional Coconut and Pecan Icing.
- White wine (few too many glasses)
Sorry about this marathon post!
I’m off to do more Holiday-like things (already did a little Boxing Day shopping, done with that for today!) and I’ll post more later.
Merry Belated Christmas!
