Wow! Yesterday was a busy day. Today we will have Christmas 1. It’s so exciting! Brian, Lauren, and Liam will be here shortly and we’ll open presents! Then we’ll spend some time with my sister and her family (and we may even pop in and see my parents for a few minutes on our way home).
Yesterday Tiffany and I did a slew of baking. It started off with pies . . . our regular Apple Crumble Pie for the family, followed by an apple pie that is considered a crossover by Trim Healthy Mama eating plan. Then she also made the pecan pie from Cookie Keto with Kristie. And rounded out the pie category with Pumpkin Pecan Slab Pie–this is the third time I’ve made this since Thanksgiving and we love it.
I made the Cinnamon Butter Bundt cake again, along with the smaller one that is nut and flax free for Tiffany.
The breakfast wraps really worked well for Thanksgiving and were delicious, so I’m going to make those again for tomorrow morning. I have to make my sourdough pizza dough tonight yet, and put it in the refrigerator for tomorrow’s pizza dinner with family. We voted for Christmas dinner and pizza won but if tacos would have been declared up front, it just may have won out.
We’ll be having hamburgers and fries at my sister’s later today. I bought sweet potato fries and some thin burgers and cheese slices. It’ll be a crossover meal but hey, it’s Christmas time and at least it is mostly on-plan. (Unfortunately as I write this, I haven’t yet made the buns to go with this meal . . . so tired . . . mostly because I worked out last night and my shoulder muscles are sore . . . and I must get them done before I go to bed.)
Let’s see, I also made four batches of Pay Off Day Candies. I put it all into a 9×13 pan and will cut it into pieces and bag some up to give as gifts. People love those candies!
Well, it’s an exciting day around here. I hope you are having fun times this week.
Until next time, Merry Christmas Eve,
