Boxing Day/ 27th Quick Re-cap

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Holiday! We were out of town yesterday and just got back this evening - hence the delay in blogging. With the hustle and bustle of the holidays I forgot a few pics - but here is the 2 1/2 day recap anyway.

Christmas Dinner

I had a plate of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, corn and perogies. I topped it off with some gravy and sour cream.

I drank punch, wine and coffee.

And for dessert I tried a bite or two of everything.

Boxing Day

We left for Saskatoon in the morning picking up a coffee and a chicken wrap (there was no breakfast food at the coffee shop).

Lunch was a veggie panini with tomato Mexican soup.

For dinner last night we went to my Grandma's for hot turkey sandwiches. On boxing day we ALWAYS have hot turkey sandwiches. They are just bread with turkey piled on top and then gravy poured over. So delicious. I had 2 slices of bread with 1 layer of turkey.

Dessert was a banana crumble type of dish and an orange.

December 27th

This morning we ate breakfast in the hotel. I had the traditional Benedict. I didn't eat the toast, and only had a few pieces of the hash browns. It was WAY too much food.

We had lunch in the mall. I had Sukiyaki beef from Edo Japan.

When we got home this evening we met our friends for dinner (they are in town for Christmas). The hubby and I shared coconut shrimp (I had 3). For my entrée I had garlic salmon and prawns with mushroom risotto and roasted veggies. It was really good, but quite garlicky.

I am exhausted now after a very busy few days - so I am off to bed.
Tomorrow I will do my NEW YEARS RESOLUTION post (10 in 2010), as I am leaving on Tuesday for a week!!!! I will not be blogging when I am gone to the Dominican (I don't think we will have access to the Internet).

Are you back at work tomorrow, or do you get a few more days off?
