On the Friday before Christmas, Austin and I made the trek down to Houston. He went on to his mom's house for Christmas eve, and I hung out with my dad's side of the family. We had a Mexican feast with fajitas, enchiladas, rice, beans, fried plantains, queso, guacamole, and enough desserts to keep even the half ton man happy. Here's my plate:
And here's my contribution to the feast:
|7 Layer Dip|
|Oreo Balls and Homemade Peppermint Bark|
My sou chef, Jimbo Spice, was a big help...
Ok enough about the pancakes. After breakfast, Riley helped us open presents:
This was the perfect Christmas breakfast. The only thing I would've wanted more would probably be pecan pie, but I'd already eaten about half a pie the night before, so I thought I'd lighten it up a bit and just have these pancakes with a big side of bacon...
The holidays are all about moderation, folks.
|Cinnamon Roll Pancakes even make Justin smile for the camera! :)|
Then it was off to Trinity, TX to see my Nanaw and Peepaw at the lake!
As soon as we arrived, there was a Christmas lunch waiting on the stove, in the oven, on the table, in the fridge...there was food everywhere. And I'm a Christmas piggy and ate everything up before I could snap any pictures...oops. I DID get pictures of the unwrapping of presents though!
I love presents. I love food. I love family. I love Christmas.
