Christmas Eating

Well, we ate our way through Christmas again this year and our tummies thanked us.
We spent Christmas Eve with our landlords family and had a lovely dinner with them.  She is an excellent cook and we had stuffed pork loin, breaded fish and shrimp, mashed potatoes, pasta salad, beans, ceviche, etc..  All excellent.  It was cold so she also had atole, which she told me she had made with pinole (sweetened toasted corn meal) for a change, along with other refrescos.  We waddled back upstairs to sleep it off until Christmas Day.
Christmas Day we went out to San Carlos to have late lunch/early dinner with our friends there.  One lady brought a flan for desert, we took the caramel sauce for the Christmas pudding and some gingersnap cookies and their company from up north helped her prepare the usual turkey dinner.  Again all was delicious and we vegged out and visited.
We haven't been doing much else since then other than eating the rest of the cookies that I have been making lately.  It has been chilly here so I have been baking to heat up the place.  Naturally once it is baked we eat it.
It has been cold and snowing up in the mountains in Arizona so we have been getting a lot of cold air here from that.  Thankfully the last few days it has begun to warm back up a bit.
I have a post to make about the despedida de soltera that I went to a few weeks ago; but have been lazy.
Happy New Year to all.

A prosperous new year to you.

I am with you. I have spent the entire Christmas week eating myself numb. But I have enjoyed the food up north.

Barb said...

Glad you had a nice Christmas. Wishing you and Roy a wonderful New Year.

Brenda said...

Barb, Felipe, and Steve. Our best wishes to you all for a wonderful New Year filled with joy and good health.

Reading your previous post about your neck pains-my husband used to toss and turn all night, switch pillows and finally give up sleeping on any because of his sore, painful neck. I read about and now he drinks a few ounces of REAL cherry juice every night and it has totally done away with pain in his neck.

Try it and hopefully it will work on you too. If you can find it there, it certainly can't hurt you.

Best wishes for the nuevo ano.

Brenda said...

Thanks Pat, I will have to try that. Even if it doesn't work it will sure taste good.
Have a good evening.

Hi Brenda. So good to hear from you. Hope your new year is going well. If I didn't say so, Happy New Year. I'm hoping that all your wishes come true. I've missed you somewhere along the way or haven't seen you post. Glad you are back. Yes I will make sure the wood is dry, although I may want to paint on one to see how it looks when the wood shrinks. Like I said, good to see you, have a great week.

Brenda said...

Hi Gloria, can't remember if I said it or not so Happy New Year to you too.
I hope this year is better for you health wise.

I haven't been on the computer as much lately and have been reading my favorite blogs on Google reader so haven't been commenting much either.

Have fun with the wood, I know I would lol.
