Christmas Eve


Currently fighting off the plague that seems to have descended on my workplace.  I certainly didn’t ask Santa for a cold, but I got it anyways.  It seems only appropriate that I settle into a long Christmas Eve of gift wrapping while doing a marathon of The Walking Dead.  There is a lovely dinner awaiting me tomorrow, I’m not really cooking, I’m more of a sous chef/Typhoid Mary.

The first course:


Cannot wait to try this soup!  Roasted cauliflower, yum! Hopefully the spice will do my cold some good too.

And the must have dish of 2014 seems to be balsamic roasted brussel sprouts.  I have seen variations of this dish a million times. I think this is the recipe that we are going with, although maybe we’ll choose our own adventure.

Kosher on a Budget?  I may have to revisit this blog later and learn some tips.  I don’t know much about kosher food other than some horrific hard boiled coffee/onion eggs served up by my sister.  It’s a classic story in my family, universally known as the worst dish ever served at a holiday dinner.  Here’s hoping tomorrow things turn out better.

Merry Christmas!
