It was a low-key holiday, mostly centered around food, of course (just the way I like it). I mean, if you can't indulge in your favorite foods once a year, when can you?!
I thought I'd share some photos of the great company I had, the delicious food I ate, and the general festiveness. ;-)
|My favorite cupcakes in Scottsdale......Sprinkles!!!|
I decided to try one of their holiday flavors: Triple Cinnamon.
It tasted just like a Snickerdoodle cookie!
But, I think their Red Velvet is still my favorite ;-)
Now, on to the Christmas Eve Appetizer Spread!
Fresh tuna marinated in sunflower oil with ginger & soy sauce.
Garnished with sesame seeds and chives.
|Tropical Ceviche w/ Mango & Pineapple!|
|Pepperoni Bread with Mozzarella, Pecorino, and Fresh Garlic & Basil|
Everything was so delicious! I could probably eat this kind of dinner full of appetizers once a week. ;-)
Time to go to sleep and wake up for Christmas day!
|Yay! My very first Lush Bath Bombs & Bubble Bars!|
Already tried a few of them and went back to the store for more.
Wish we had Lush in Argentina...
I'm thinking about doing a review on each of the bombs/bars after I use them...thoughts?
|Probably my most used Christmas gift...|
I took this backpack with me EVERYWHERE over vacation!
|Mom & Dad|
|The "kids" in our Santa hats!|
|Christmas French Toast|
French Toast made from a base of Panettone,
with some other delicious flavors added in.
|Margaritas, puzzles and Christmas lights.|
I was on a margarita kick over the holidays and found myself
ordering them pretty much everywhere I went.
|Ahh, shrimp cocktail.|
Maybe it's a thing of the 90s, but for me it never gets old!
|Sitting down for Christmas dinner. :-D|
|Unwinding by the outdoor fireplace after a lovely holiday...|
What holiday traditions (old or new) do you celebrate in your family?
