Friday Faves 12.29 + Christmas recap


Hello pals! I hope you’ve had an exquisite week. It’s been a stunning blur between Christmas and New Years, and I’ve loved all of this time with the crew. We’ve loved sluggish mornings, hikes, buying, nails, studying, and flicks. I’m undoubtedly not trying ahead to high school returning, particularly the early morning scramble and hours of homework.

I hope that my pals who celebrated Christmas this week had a fantastic vacation. My dad and stepmom had been out of city – my step-grandmother handed away. She was so sort and fantastic, and I’m grateful we had been blessed to have her in our lives. We had a low-key Christmas Eve at dwelling with Chinese language takeout and Christmas Chronicles, and I met up with madre for midnight mass. They turned the lights down for Silent Night time and it was the right strategy to begin the vacation.

The ladies had been up vivid and early for Santa’a items and stockings, after which the household came to visit for household items, tamales, beans, egg casserole, cinnamon rolls, and the Pilot’s well-known egg nog.

We spent the morning collectively, ingesting espresso and eggnog, and exchanging items,

and everybody went dwelling to sit back for a couple of hours.

We took a stroll and dropped off cookies to our neighbors. — I bake for 2 weeks in December and freeze the whole lot. This manner, it’’s not hectic and we’ve a giant assortment of goodies for neighbors and vacation cookie trays. These cookies, these cookies, and peppermint bark are all the time on the checklist.

Then, we had 20 individuals over for Christmas dinner and it.was.the whole lot.

Appetizers had been this big cheese board:

(plus a smaller board I positioned on one of many tables for snacking)

Artichoke dip and crackers

ALL the sweets (chocolate bourbon pecan pie, pear pie {that a} pal introduced over, xmas log, completely different espresso muffins and cookies)

and for dinner, we smoked two giant natural turkeys, two big grass-fed beef tenderloins, made horseradish sauce, gravy, asparagus, salad, and madre introduced over tacky potatoes. The meat was all from ButcherBox and cooked completely on the Traeger.

The hit of the evening was the video games!! I acquired this concept from a pals’ Christmas occasion: Saran Wrap Ball! You wrap a ton of goodies right into a ball, after which one individual unwraps it whereas the individual subsequent to them rolls two cube (die? I don’t know this stuff). When that individual hits doubles, the timer stops, and the ball goes to the following individual. If the individual unwraps a mini bottle of alcohol, it’s an choice for them to take a shot (or hand the mini bottle to a different keen grownup to take the shot for them).

Listed below are among the goodies I wrapped into the ball:

and the completed product:

It was a day filled with enjoyable occasions, good meals, and wonderful items, and as all the time, my favourite half is being with so many individuals we love a lot, on the similar time. I’m so unhappy the vacations are over!!
