I hope you all the best holiday! We ate tasty-goodness, as is our tradition.
We wrote out the menu for our feast Christmas Eve. It involved breakfast, daytime snacking, and a big dinner.
I made us sweet and savory crepes for breakfast. Half with strawberry jam, strawberries, and brie, and the rest were filled with crispy proscuitto, gruyere, and spinach.
I’m the sweetie to Jake’s savory. We’re a food ying-yang. I pick dessert and he picks charcuterie. But don’t worry, neither of us discriminate where good food is concerned.
We sipped mimosas all day. They pair well with everything but pickles.
After breakfast we ate cheese, crackers, and various cured meats. This snack that keeps it real until dinner. We had gouda, goat cheese, mushroom brie, extra sharp cheddar, and a soft manchester.
Elliot wore his sweater so that he could look so festive too.
I’m into putting more than one type of cheese on every cracker. Good thing Jake supports cheese duos.
We listened to A Very She & Him Christmas and Elvis and watched Home Alone. We lounged with Elliot and wondered why Kevin McCallister left all the doors unlocked…
Then Jake started dinner while I took Elliot for a walk. He made beef wellington with glazed carrots, and rosemary infused duck fat roasted potatoes.
It was a lovely day full of breezy backyard chilling, bubbly drinks, cheeses galore, a boyfriend with cooking skills, and a pup in a sweater.
P.S. Below are the cookie bags I passed out this year.
