In the evening we went out for my work Christmas party. Dinner was at Birmingham's, where I had the taco salad, and Christopher had a veggie burger with salad.
I made the mistake of ordering this taco salad, forgetting that I had it last year and didn't like it. Oh well - hopefully I'll remember not to get it if we ever go back again.
This weekend we cooked up some good eats ...
But mostly I did a lot of baking with a handsome helper/ supervisor/ taste-taster:
And if the wonderful aroma of Christmas baking wasn't enough, we also had a turkey/chicken stock simmering away on the stove all day today. We had frozen the bones from both the turkey and the chicken we made recently, and used those along with carrot, celery, onion, and various aromatics to make the stock, which we'll use for soup tomorrow evening.
We got a lot of gift wrapping done today too, so it was a productive (and fun) weekend.
How was your weekend? What did you do? Have you baked any Christmas goodies? Are you planning to? Have you gone to any holiday parties?
