12/24 recap

Phew! Lots to let you know about this last week! Finally have a chance to catch you up on the morning of Christmas Eve...


The people:
Dad, my brother E, E's girlfriend Christine, Christine's brother and mom (in from out of town!), my hubby and - you guessed it - me. Wasn't sure how well we'd all fit our little dining area, so the Hubs helped me move the table out into the living room. Looked slightly odd, but worked great!


The food*:

  • Sweet potato frittata with spinach and onion
  • Red potato frittata with herbs and shiitake mushrooms
  • Cinnamon oranges
  • Honeydew melon
  • Juice
  • Delicious coffee from Christine and E
*Recipes in an upcoming post.



The shopping:
We ended up splitting into groups to finish shopping for gifts. There were only a few specific items we were trying to hunt down, but we were largely unsuccessful. We did find some great stocking stuffers, however. And we had a great time in the process. We met back up at Bass Pro. Even on a busy day, it's always good to take time out to watch the fish swim by. (Isn't that how the saying goes?)
