What did you eat for Christmas?
tell me every detail, post 4 comments if it won't fit in one.

First we went for a jog around the neighborhood. It was wonderfully quiet. Then we drank champagne with pomagranate juice. Holidays call for champagne.

Then I made breakfast potatoes with 1 regular potato, 1/2 sweet potato, onion, 1 green pepper, salt, pepper, olive oil and 2tbsp healthy choice cream of mushroom soup. We ate them with eggs (or egg whites).

Lunch time was after going to the movies to see Tangled, where we ate our traditional popcorn and cherry coke. I made a veggie tray. Can you say you "made" a veggie tray if all you did was transfer vegetables to a cute tray you got for your wedding? It took me longer to arrange this photo.

For our pre-dinner appetizer Chris made these quite delicious stuffed mushrooms from The Pioneer Woman. I would recommend everyone's husbands makes them for their wives who have now moved on from mimosas to Pomegranate Cranberry Martini's.

Salad: Spinach, Goat Cheese, Pear, Fresh Pepper, and a splash of Vinaigrette dressing.
The main course: Fresh no color added salmon that I splurged on from Whole Foods, Gigantic Scallops that were delicious (and maybe a part of a new tradition), Wild Rice, and Roasted Asparagus.
DrinkyDrink: Pomegranate Cranberry Martini (again)

Happy Holiday Eating!!


  1. Since you asked...
    Breakfast (brunch) is our tradition...a swedish egg strata w/ham and cheese, sausage balls, cinnamon rolls (a la Pillsbury) and sparkling grape juice (a long standing tradition!)

    mid-afternoon snack of spinach artichoke dip

    kids got PBJ for dinner (a Christmas delicacy for them - they'd love nothing more!) and for our dinner, after they were in bed, "Drunk and dirty beef tenderloin" (marinated in a soy-bourbon sauce, reduced to glaze), au gratin potatoes, steamed asparagus...and water. Alcohol-free this Christmas :) Not so healthy but OH SO YUMMY!!

  2. We both had asparagus! hahaha. Sounds delicious Emily :)
