Birthday 2019 was spent at EPCOT with Meghan! We had a great time, but took very few photos.
The night before: hanging out in Downtown Disney.
Then EPCOT fun:
I made Durian Juice. Bit of a disaster.
It’s so much fun to have breakfast for dinner in the new year. Breakfast is my favorite meal and I love having my family over as a New Year’s tradition so I can spoil them with my favorite foods.
Here we’re having quiche, pancakes, tater tots, and banana muffins, all homemade except the frozen tater tots! We have cheese, sautéed mushrooms, sautéed onions, various syrups (lite syrup, maple syrup, agave nectar, honey), and various toppings and condiments (chocolate chips, powdered sugar, butter, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, ketchup) for adding to our food. So good!
We had a lovely New Year’s Eve at Mom’s. I went over to her house where my sister Patricia, brother-in-law Yusuke, and nephew Ash were staying, and we all lit sparklers, ate ice cream, roasted marshmallows, and played Uno together. We watched the ball drop and talked a little about resolutions!
Whoa I made my own Sugar Shock Shutdown from Steven Universe. It’s a very sugary, red soda. Be afraid.
A recipe that’s mentioned but never prepared on Steven Universe. I decided to make it.
Christmas Day happened at my mom’s house this year! Sister Patricia, brother-in-law Yusuke, and nephew Ash were staying with Mom. Sister Lindsay and brother-in-law Mike drove in to visit, and I brought friends Victor and Jeaux. Later Lindsay and Mike’s friend Ryan and Mom’s roomie David joined us.
We made cookies, had dinner, and opened gifts!

Peridot socks my friend Kari made me!
I made my own version of Guacola, which is a pretty gross soft drink from Steven Universe. You should be frightened.
I got to go see my dad and Connie for our holiday gathering 2018. I rode along with Patricia, Yusuke, and Ash, and we met Lindsay and Mike there. Much fun was had!
My salad: not that adventurous.
Mike’s good with that ice cream.
