Christmas 2010

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on December 25, 2010

Merry Christmas!

I hope you are enjoying a day filled with delicious food, loved ones, caffeine, laughter, chocolate, and fun. Did I mention chocolate and caffeine? Ok. Just making sure we are on the same page here.

We have had a great day at my in-laws place. We didn’t end up opening our gifts until about 4pm because we were waiting for Steve and Joanne to arrive (they spent the morning’s at Joanne’s dad’s house). It ended up being nice because it stretched out Christmas day that much longer! It always goes by so quickly…just like a wedding!

The weather today was about –5C and cloudy skies. I was contemplating getting outside for a run, but I wasn’t motivated enough today. Maybe tomorrow… ;)

I did venture out to meet the neighbours! Eric and I brought them Glo Bars and Nanaimo bars and in return I asked to borrow vanilla, flour, and baking soda for our recipe! lol.

They were very nice and sent us home with whole wheat flour, vanilla extract, and baking soda!

Whohoo! The show goes on.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I hope it tastes good because I’ll be blogging about it tomorrow!

This is the cute bedroom we are sleeping in. The bed has a bed warmer and it is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread.

My niece and nephew were so excited today…it was fun to watch them open gifts!

A few of my gifts…

Very excited to try this cookbook out! It looks pretty good.

I was also surprised with a Silpat non-stick baking mat. I have wanted one for a couple years now, but I never bothered to shell out the cash for one as they are quite expensive. I’m really excited to try it out in lieu of parchment paper!

I also got a couple serving trays! Expect to see on the blog soon. :)

Lurking deep within the belly of the tree, Sketchie says Merry Catmas! Santa brought Sketchie some cat treats this year. He has already had about 10 treats…plus the dog’s food…plus the other cat’s wet food.

It’s a good day for Sketchie.

Coming up tomorrow…

Any guesses what Eric and I made?

Ahhh a Silpat!! I had enough foodie items on my list and didn’t ask for one as a result, but I’m interested to see what you think of it! Looks like a wonderful Christmas!

Looks like some sort of cranberry pecan cookies?? I’m pretty much obsessed with pecans right now…mmmm Looks like you had such a fun day. Did someone buy you a bottle of advil??? If so, that is hilarious!! Love the avocado slicer!! Always so fun to get new dishes for photography. Miss you love!

Merry Christmas!!! I can’t wait to see what you make out of The Vegan Table! I have the book and haven’t been disappointed yet. The no-queso quesadillas are SOOOOO good. You will love that book!

Merry (belated) Christmas! Just wanted to send you a “thank you” for the Peppermint Walnut Crunch Blondie recipe. I made a batch of these to share with my family during Christmas dinner and they were delicious!! They were so easy to make, I’m planning on another batch to take to a New Year’s party later this week. I’m looking forward to trying the other blondie recipes soon. :)

Please let us know how you like the silpats. I have two and I feel like anything I bake on them tastes like plastic :(
