Made eggrolls

Mom had extra cabbage so she brought it to my house and we made eggrolls. She did most of the cooking so I relaxed with some wine. Jeaux stopped by to pick up something he forgot at my house so he got to have some of the chicken eggrolls too!

Christmas Meal

Had my mom and two safe friends over for holiday dinner! For the first time, I got to cook and host! I made dinner and dessert for everyone and we exchanged gifts. Everything came out so unbelievably delicious!

A New Year’s (Newish) Tradition: Breakfast for Dinner!

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!

New Year’s Eve 2018

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!
