Christmas Eating Recap

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.

May I present some Orange and Almond Biscotti:

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!

Non-Turkey Day

Hello lovelies.

What’s this???

Two posts in one day? Crazy I know right?

Well after studying and writing my blog post I had myself a snack:

Yum. Apple with LOTS of peanut butter. 😉

I then fiddled around doing nothing for a few hours. Actually I totally watched Because I Said So. I know I’ve seen it before, but I think I appreciated it more now. Not because my mom (or myself) is like that at all, but I just felt I understood it better. The first time I saw it… meh didn’t do anything for me. But I definitely enjoyed it.

I went to my friend’s for their free Thanksgiving dinner. I meant to take pictures, but it would have looked like a blob of potatoes, a blob of stuffing, and a white bun. Exciting no? That was my plate (and I was cheating with the stuffing! 😦 ). She shared some snackes with us after, so it wasn’t all bad. I came home after to have some tea and take the autumn chill off.

Well, two meals sans technology. How good have I been? So good! Hope I can do it tomorrow!
