The Adventures of a Calamari Queen

Christmas 2015!

Hello friends! We hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Christmas this year. Ours was a simple one full of family time and going to Church on Christmas eve. For our tradition, we always spend Christmas eve dinner at Zach’s grandmother’s house ( his mom’s side) where we have dinner and exchange gifts (white elephant). We had Mexican food this year and everything turned out great. We bought some skirt steak and made carne asada and guacamole. It was a big hit! Zach helped a lot with the food, so thank you Ga!

We went to Church before going to grandma’s house:

On Christmas day, we “hosted” at home and had my In laws the whole day. We had breakfast, read Jesus’ birth story,  opened gifts, watched Christmas movies, my Parent In laws walked the dogs, then we prepared dinner (mostly seafood and Zach made Lobster Mac and cheese), he used Ina Garten’s recipe and it was great!

Christmas Breakfast was Cheddar cheese popovers,Bacon,Bread pudding,fruit salads!
