Christmas 2010 – A Recap

by Megan on December 27, 2010

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! We kept it real with the following traditions.

We wore festive outfits and drank mimosas.

We had a big tasty breakfast. This year we had chocolate chip pancakes topped with fresh whipped cream. (That’s my new big whisk down there!)

I took a picture of Elliot through my chocolate-covered gingerbread men spatula. He thought that was pretty fun.

We sipped mimosas all day while sitting on the couch, listening to Elvis Christmas songs and watching A Christmas Story and Home Alone 2.

This year we got a real tree! I thought it was a Douglas Fur, but Jake says it’s an Albus Fur, which I don’t mind. It reminds me of Dumbledore. We just decorated the tree with lights and this owl ornament.

Cheese and cracker snacking takes us through lunch since Jake make’s a big dinner every year. This year we got fancy goat cheese, an applewood smoked cheddar and an English cheese with a long name.

Jake made us a roasted pork shoulder with fancy holiday spices. And that’s our super pretty new roasting pan. It was a Christmas miracle! We also had roasted potatoes, but we gobbled them up.

It was a good Christmas filled with tasty food, bubbly drinks, my tall drink of water of a boyfriend and my cute little pup.

P. S. These are the Christmas cookie boxes I gave out, this year.

They included: Gingerbread PenguinsPeppermint Bark LollipopsCandy Cane OreosCream WafersQuick Toffee Squares, and Mini Chocolate Crinkles.

Megan I love it! Looks like so much fun and your apartment pretty much looks amazing.

Thanks Lora Bora. When you visit we’ll drink mimosas with breakfast. Don’t you worry.

I loved seeing a glimpse of your Christmas.. I think my favorite picture was of Elliot peeking thru the tiny opening in the pancake turner! So cute!!

Elliot is a pretty cute pup. 🙂 Thanks for the hip gingerbread cut out pancake flipper!

NICE! I made the chocolate crinkles too, but bcos of the humid weather in singapore the icing sugar dissolved and my dad said some looked mouldy. :/ but they were nice! 🙂

I love getting cooking utensils and accessories for christmas! This year I received a cast iron skillet (preseasoned!) and a 14″ pastry bag (with tips to make beautiful cupcakes!).

Kangli – That’s cool that you made the crinkles! Humidity doesn’t get along with powdered sugar. I’ve had the same problem in the summertime! I bet they still were tasty though. 🙂

Kara- Me too! Ooh those gifts sound so fun!

I want one of your gift boxes! I love the mimosas – it’s not a celebration without them!


Megan (megabite) December 28, 2010 at 11:17 am

Well, Shucks!

And, I agree! Mimosas make it a party. 🙂

What a lovely Christmas you had! I love your couch, Megan! So cool. And the picture of your Christmas cookie box reminds me that I still have to make the Cream Wafers and not just keep saying the words “cream wafers” (even though it’s pretty darn fun to say.)


Megan (megabite) January 3, 2011 at 8:06 am

Hey Beckie! Thanks! My couch was my grandma’s couch that was in their motorhome, if you can even believe it. She is a classy lady though. 🙂

And you totally should make Cream Wafers! They are tasty!

We make a tradition of Christmas breakfast mimosas. I hope you had a lovely Christmas this year!


Megan (megabite) January 7, 2011 at 11:11 am

Awesome, Dana! Mimosas are the best. 🙂
