Happy Christmas, everyone! No recipes today, but here are some pictures of the food I've been enjoying for the holidays.
Tamales are the traditional Christmas Eve dinner in my household. This year I filled them with a mixture of sweet potatoes, black beans, kale, and peppers. They were a hit for sure.
We ate them while sitting on the floor by fireplace enjoying a cozy little fire.
After opening presents and calling our families this morning, we made a big brunch: soysage patties, cinnamon rolls, and hash browns with kale and red peppers.
There have, of course, been plenty of sweets to see us through: coconut-chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, molasses cookies, and chocolate-peppermint fudge.
And yes, the dog and cats enjoyed plenty of Christmas cheer, too. Syann and Maya went crazy for their compressed catnip ball.
Jasper enjoyed unpacking his stocking himself, and laying his new toys one by one on his bed.
