First off, I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing and fun holiday. Ours was wonderful and lots of new memories were made. We spent Christmas Eve with friends, did our own thing on Christmas day (and talked to family back home in Michigan), and went out with another friend to celebrate the day after Christmas.
On another note, Penny D. was the winner of the Paleo Eats giveaway, which I announced last Tuesday morning. Penny, I still have not heard back from you, so please email me ASAP with your mailing address at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I do not hear from you by end of day on Wednesday, December 31, I will be picking a new winner.
Anyway, here are some random photos from Christmas. I didn’t take too many, but thought I’d share the handful that I did take. We enjoyed pork tenderloin with apples, onions and a hard cider sauce for dinner, along with cauliflower/parsnip mash and kale sautéed with chanterelle mushrooms. Oh, and we made French toast with the sweet bread from Paleo Eats for breakfast that morning and it was incredible! We ate ours with butter and a little raw honey on top, and a side of bacon. Sadly, I didn’t snap any photos of it…or really any food for that matter.
Meanwhile, I hope you all have a happy New Year! Jesse’s birthday is New Year’s Eve and he’s planned some fun festivities during the day — climbing, go-carts and a shooting range (this part is still TBD). That night, we’ll go out to dinner with some friends. Aside from that, I have a recipe in the works that I plan to make on New Year’s day. Hopefully, it’ll turn out well, so I can share it with you all. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted one!
