On the 1st Day of Christmas...

We officially started our Christmas Eve celebration around 1:00 pm when I got home from work.  R went grocery shopping and finished wrapping presents this morning while I was gone.  Last year we started the tradition of reserving Christmas Eve for the two of us.  We love to cook together so dinner is going to be amazing.  I created a holiday menu using a template online but I couldn't get it to publish to blogger.  Imagine a blue background with snowflakes :-)


  • Holiday Brie with Chives and Lightly Salted Pita Crackers
  • Cheddar Cheese Straws
  • Sausage Balls

Cocktail: Eggnog

Main Course:

  • Seasoned Steak with optional blue cheese crumbles  
  • Gnocchi al Gorgonzola
  • Kale, Edamame, and Cranberry Salad

Wine: Apothic Red


  • Assorted Holiday Cookies and Truffles

Wine: Duplin Christmas Eve

This is a double tray cookie tin that a sweet patient brought me at work. I'll probably bring this one on the family rounds tomorrow.

We also exchanged gifts.  R likes to stick to a list for me but I LOVE surprising him.

R loves his scotch!

 My new wallet has polka dots just like my blouse!
We also had gifts for the furbabies...

On Christmas we are spending the morning with my mom and eating lunch with my whole family.  Then we will spend the afternoon with his family.  No post tomorrow so Merry Christmas to all my  readers and blog friends and I hope you all have a safe and festive holiday!
