We are almost there ... and I am almost ready! Tomorrow is my last day of work, and then I am off for 2 weeks!! You have NO idea how excited I am to be on holidays for 2 weeks. Also, we leave for the Dominican Republic on the 29th ... so I have even more to be excited for.

Last night we had the hubby's family over for dinner. I made a spiced ham with scalloped potatoes, and honey balsamic carrots.



I also made a homemade applesauce and honey mustard sauce.





I enjoyed 1 glass of red wine with dinner, and a nanaimo square for dessert.



This morning I had leftover wifesaver of course (recipe to come soon - I promise!!)





I also had a glass of orange juice. Mmmmm, I don't drink juice often, but it sure beats water in the morning!



At work I had an orange and a small cinnamon bun (gotta love staffroom snacks around the holidays!)

Lunch was another orange and a mini lasagna from Costco - really good!



And since we made a GIANT ham for dinner yesterday, I had leftovers for supper. You might be seeing ham for a few days ...



Are you traveling at all over the holidays?

We will be going with 10 friends to the Dominican for a week - but unfortunately I won't be here for my sister's 23rd b-day which is on New Years Eve.

Stay tuned for a special post tomorrow night :-)

This wifesaver stuff looks so interesting - can't wait to see the recipe. Your scalloped potatoes also look awesome, but could you really go wrong with cheese and potatoes?

One Healthy Apple said...

Wow, your dinner sounds great! I am very impressed!

We are hanging at home but have some trips planned next year, so can't complain!

I hope you have an amazing time on your trip to DR.
