Christmas 2014

Woahhhh…long time no talk! All I know is I haven’t {felt} like blogging for the past three weeks-ish…..so I didn’t, shoot me!

Plus we were out of town and that makes it hard. I like to blog from my little computer at home and that’s pretty much it! How was your Christmas? Mine was too good not to share so I decided to sit down today and photo dump.

Someone enjoyed the Christmas tree!

 

I mainly got pictures of food…can you blame me? I made some GREAT recipes from some of the new cookbooks I got. I actually got Mediterranean Paleo Cooking and Every Last Crumb at the Paleo book signing the weekend before we left. I really have no words for that experience- it was amazing and meeting these ladies (and guy!)  was everything I thought it would be!

I look like a super creeper.

Anyways, back to the food! I started Christmas Brunch with the cinnamon rolls from Brittany Angell’s Every Last Crumb. SO glad I bought this book. I almost didn’t! I highly recommend it. It has grain free recipes like I’ve never experienced! Yes some of the ingredients are different but totally worth the effort for these amazing cinnamon rolls!

Let me back up for a minute. For Christmas Eve I made lemon garlic shrimp  from Mediterranean Paleo Cooking. Everyone loved it!

That’s it in the top corner. Great appetizer for New Years if you’re looking for one!

Back to Christmas brunch. We enjoyed mimosas with the cinnamon rolls. Then chowed down on ham (from my pigs!), asparagus and sweet potato quiche from Mediterranean Paleo Cooking.

We were just missing Frank, who I had left at my parents house. After brunch that’s where we headed for more Christmas fun. Notice I didn’t mention any presents….clearly you can tell what’s important to me: food! And family of course!

Our buddies finally reunited!

 

Overall it was a wonderful week that we enjoyed spending with family and friends. I’m so ready for the new year. I’m not sure how often I’m going to be getting to this little blog of mine. I’m on the fence about how often I want to post. I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve backed off a bit this last 6 months. The motive for blogging is a lot different now than it was in the beginning. For now, I’ll just stick to posting when I feel like it. I hope you have a happy and healthy new year!

What was your favorite Christmas food?
