Snippets from the last few days
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely holiday weekend at home with the pets. It was cozy, romantic and somewhat surreal to spend it privately in our new home. Keegan’s parents, sister and boyfriend paid us a visit Christmas Eve, but otherwise we had the house to ourselves.
This weekend marked a lot of firsts: from the cobbler to the truffles and the pickles, I might have probably spent most of the weekend in the kitchen. And that’s not a bad thing! There’s nothing I love more than getting creative from a culinary perspective. Lately I wanna focus on my flow. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi would be proud.
So for dinner we had pulled pork, slow-cook mac and cheese, stuffed mushrooms, asparagus soup, fries (to go with the barbeque), deviled eggs, a tomato tart, bacon-wrapped dates, sweet potato pie, oreo peppermint truffles, caramael pie and chocolate covered espresso beans to stay awake. Not too shabby considering the two of us cooked this all by ourselves!!
Christmas Eve Snacks (below): Keegan’s parents took us to Red Lobster for letting them use our guest room before they flew to Seattle. We watched a Christmas Story and relaxed after dinner. This cheese plate turned out well, especially since everything was half off at Safeway!! We also went to Origins and Syntax. Overall it was a super chill weekend.
And here’s a few of my favorite memes from the last few days
Between the food, the drinks and three different movies, Keegan and I had the most chill Christmas ever. I have books to read, resolutions to make and plenty of food to eat. Looking forward to these next few weeks; let’s finish the year strong and kick off 2017 with a bang!
