Christmas #2

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  Last night was Christmas at Chris' parent's house.  We were welcomed with an assortment of munchies, which we enjoyed while sipping drinks and visiting.

 

Along with gorgeous stockings, we were given a very special and thoughtful gift.

 
 

And then came the dinner.  Wow!  

I loooooove beets.  So much.
The food was so good and I ate more than I have in a long time.  I definitely felt ready to explode.  My stomach gurgled all night and I slept like a baby.  

Today, instead of braving the frigid weather to go out and do anything, it was a turkey leftovers and documentary/TV kind of day.  The best show of the day - "Hungry For Change".  I have seen most of the documentaries related to food/nutrition, but I think this one is definitely the most comprehensive.  If you are at all interested in getting healthier or just learning more about health/diet/food/nutrition, I highly recommend this.  Tomorrow will be spent possibly working on my thesis, or possibly procrastinating until the New Year.  We'll see.  Knowing how much I love homework, I'm sure you can guess what I won't be doing tomorrow.
 
How was your Christmas?
What is your favourite part of Christmas dinner?

My favorite part of Christmas dinner was either the cabbage salad my mom made or the garlic mashed potatoes. Yum!

Oh god, I'm with you on the beet fiending! We made borscht over the holidays and had some leftover for roasting...I could eat them plain by the truckload. So good. Also brussels! Looks like you had an awesome feast!

My Christmas was great!
It's a toss up between green bean casserole and mashed potatoes and gravy ;)
