Wow! What a Christmas. I have to admit that I was far to busy this Advent to be able to enjoy much of anything. Next year, I vow to be more prepared! Remind me in August, ok?
|She kept stealing the oranges from everyone's stockings|
Anyway, we had an incredible amount of food. As usual, I overdid. I always plan too much. In fact, I even put some recipes away. as I was still baking away on Christmas Eve!
We had these amazing Coconut Pecan Breakfast Bars just like last year. It was a perfect breakfast!
I did not get a picture of the finished product, but the crust above is from the Paleo Lemon Bars. They were amazing! Very lemony!
Danielle Walker's Peppermint Chocolate Macaroons. I didn't have an peppermint extract, so I only added about 3 drops of DoTerra's Peppermint essential oil, since they are food grade.
Below are several shots of the coconut and peanut butter pops I made. These are so tasty, but next year I am making them smaller. They were so rich!
Sorry, the pretzel sticks are decidedly NOT gluten free. Those were for the kids, lol.
They were a big hit, as you can see...
For dinner we had a beautiful ham, mashed potatoes made with canned coconut milk, asparagus, and a new recipe Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts. The picture quality is horrendous, I know, it was already dark.
Hoping you all had a very merry and tasty Christmas!
