We had our usual leisurely Christmas morning. We take forever to drink coffee, open cards, bake muffins, open gifts, drink prosecco, open more, play with our presents, make breakfast (around noon), watch a movie, take a nap, open more gifts/cards, and watch another movie. We are couch potatoes.
Sandi's gingerbread-cranberry muffins were great!
Brad had a small, but nice haul this year. We reduced our usual Shopping budget by more than half!
My pile had a surprise or two, and everything I asked Santa for.
Ego is sniffing out his stocking.
Christmas breakfast is our only meal of the day, so we take it quite seriously. It is our 11th year of Benedict, and the meat varies from year to year. We decided on crab cakes.
I made a few extra to freeze for our next dinner party. My secret: roll the crab mixture first in egg, then in POTATO CHIPS! That's right, and no baked in the oven, low fat, veggie chip will do. Get the greasiest, saltiest, most delicious chips you can find (Hawaiian chips work best for me), smash a bag, and use them!
Brad is the master of the perfect poached egg! (I have 11 years of this very shot!)
I do the muffins and the hollandaise. We were stuffed! This is our breakfast, lunch and dinner! (Ok, maybe a cookie or piece of candy tonight...)
