Finally an update….
Hello there. How was your Christmas break? Our’s was nice. It was low key which is even better. We were going to visit family on Christmas Eve but it was sleeting and the roads were not safe to travel. The boys had a great Christmas. And they gave me the most awesome gift ever. An apron with their picture on it. I love it. I told Josh that I didn’t want it to get dirty. He laughed.
For our holiday feast, I cooked up some goodness. Our fridge is full of leftovers. Which Josh and I both love. Tofurky season only comes twice a year so we strike while the iron is hot. We actually thought about doing a holiday feast in July just so we could have an excuse to eat tofurky and all the fixins. Ha ha. For our holiday dinner, I baked a tofurky, made mockloaf, mashed potatoes, chipotle sweet potatoes, bread, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, gravy, pumpkin pie and chocolate pecan pie. All vegan of course. Some of my friends were surprised that all this food goodness was vegan. Ha! Vegan and awesome!
All the food ready to be eaten.
A plate full of goodness.
I also made some cranberry caramel bars. Holy tofu! These bars were to die for. I saw on Facebook that a fellow vegan friend made these for a potluck. I used the caramel sauce recipe from The PPK. The recipe comes from a site called Myrecipes.com. They are so freakin’ good. You should definitely give them a try.
Poor Arthur fell today while trying to sit at the kitchen table. When he slipped while trying to sit down he bit through his bottom lip. Thankfully he did not need stitches, but he is definitely going to have a bruise and a swollen lip for a while. I felt so bad for him. Ugh.Well next week is the New Year. Can you believe it? What are your plans? Do you have any resolutions for the New Year?
I am off to eat some leftovers for dinner. Hope you have a lovely day.
peas and love….
Krys and the boys
