Christmas Brunch

A tradition for 10 years now, is to have a Christmas brunch mid-day, and NO dinner.
It usually takes us most of the day to open gifts (and play with them). After opening gifts from 8-2:30, we finally made BREAKFAST!
Brad is a master of poaching eggs for the Benedict.

I did my foolproof blender hollandaise.

We couldn't even eat our hash browns, so Ego had quite a treat!

After all the holiday celebrations, we don't need another big dinner, so we only have a snack at night: cookies, or more crostada.

We watched holiday movies, took a nap, and read our new books during the lazy afternoon. Then we opened MORE gifts from Ida and Bill, my cousin Gary, Cindy and Charlotte, and neighbor, Diana! What a wonderful day!

I must get an egg poaching lesson from Brad - I've yet to perfect the boiling water method. Instead I rely on those microwave poachers that always result in at least one exploded egg splattered in the microwave!

It looks like a wonderful day!
