This year I was very excited because we actually stopped,
in mid-motion of Christmas madness, to make gingerbread houses…
It was wonderful fun, although the walls kept caving in until we
became patient enough to just hold them in place while they dried a bit...
But in the end, we all agreed they came out nice…
And quite gingerbread-house-y…
Christmas morning was pleasant... The kids got a million books.This guy wasted no time getting started reading...
Breakfast was a wonderful frittata. The following is a rough telling of how it went:
In a large bowl wisk together:
4 egg yolks (I think this added to the overall effect)
4 cups milk
1+1/2 cups cheddar cheese grated
2 cups broccoli (Lightly steamed first then chopped small)
1 small onion minced
1 red bell pepper diced
1 pasilla pepper (Roasted over a flame on the stove
then the skin scrapped and the pepper diced)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and black pepper
Poured into a buttered 11 x 13 baking dish.
Baked at 350 degrees until middle sets… I think about 30-35 minutes.
Later we went to Pier Park and all the boys played disc golf...
Christmas evening we made a massive feast.
Yes, there was duck!! And lots of other things...
