I was wondering when all these fabulous holiday eats would catch up with the scale. Ah ha! Here the are!
Christmas Eve dinner at my parent’s house rocked. My sister in law made dinner and it was amazing.
Salad….I ate two full bowls.
Her homemade pasta and meatballs:
My favorite sauce ever. Ever.
After dinner, I went out to BJ’s with my brother and sister in law to grab a drink with some of their friends.
We also ended up with some hot wings late night too.
No where as good as mine.
We started Christmas morning in the most excellent way.
Holiday mimosas! Whoop whoop!
My brother made his famous “spicy eggs”:
I look forward to these each year.
Bacon doesn’t hurt either….
Another thing I look forward to are the orange rolls….
….and cinnamon rolls.
Breakfast of champions:
Then it was time to really get down to business….Open Presents!!
During the day we snacked on veggies, chips and dip. Eventually it was time to get dinner going….
Prime rib and baked potatoes!
Then it was time to pack up and head back to San Diego. I can’t believe how fast the holiday went!
Yesterday morning’s breakfast was an egg beater sandwich on a toasted English muffin with cheese and avocado. I’m loving the addition of avocado to this sandwich!
I took the kids to get hair cuts and then met my husband at Olive Garden for lunch. I ordered the soup and salad combo.
The soup’s just ok. I really order it just for the salad.
I had a free meal for my birthday at Benihana so that’s where we went for dinner. I hadn’t be in SO long!
Salad with Ginger Dressing:
I ordered the Hibachi Steak and Shrimp with fried rice.
I forgot how much I loved Benihana! And a free meal doesn’t hurt either! I wasn’t all bad…I skipped the free ice cream. :)
This morning I got to try out a funny little pan I got for Christmas.
It makes the perfect size egg for my egg sandwiches!
What was the best gift you received for Christmas?
