On the Eleventh Day of Christmas . . . I give you food!
I think when it comes right down to it . . . my favorite thing about the holidays, really, is the food!
From cookie-baking to Christmas dinner, I love poring over cookbooks and food magazines, planning my menus, shopping for the just-right ingredients, and then doing the actual cooking and baking.
We now have way too many cookies . . .
but the Christmas Eve Swedish Smörgåsbord. . .
was completely obliterared!
The glögg went pretty fast, too.
Christmas dinner was most excellent . . .
finished with salted caramel cheesecakes (that most definitely did NOT look like their magazine photo counterpart. . . but tasted pretty darn heavenly).
So much YUM packed into just a couple of days! (And now . . . I'm headed for the gym!!!)
