I’m not sure what time Chad & Nicole went to bed last night. They had a lot to do to help Santa. Nicole was up at 5 a.m. and she woke me up 6 to get breakfast going. I made those egg cups that my friend, Nelle, told me about – hash browns in the bottom and sides of muffin cups, cook those til they’re crispy, then pour in scrambled (raw) eggs with seasonings and cheese. I could have mixed the crumbled bacon in with the eggs but we had a vegetarian so I put bacon on top, except not on hers. I had made a fruit bowl last night and added the pears and bananas this morning. It was the easiest breakfast I’ve ever done for a small group and everything was ready to serve at once. Counting Addie, we had 8. I fixed 18 egg muffins and we ended up with 2 left.
I can’t believe I didn’t take pictures of any of it.
The packages were opened.
I reminded Addie that if she got the baby sister she keeps wanting, she’ll only get half as many toys next year and maybe she doesn’t want a baby sister after all. 🙂
I’m so ready for a nap but now we go to Nicole’s grandparents. When Nicole told me that we were all bringing finger foods instead of having a big meal, she and I planned to bring the little toothpick things that you put cheese, then ham, then an olive with a toothpick through it, and I made Chicken Caesar Salad Pinwheels. Then Chad said he wanted something without all the “vegetables” so he smoked salmon and has a tray with salmon, cream cheese, honey mustard and crackers and a separate tray with sliced homemade venison summer sausage (that is delicious) and cheeses.
The way I see it, I can take a 15 minute nap before we have to leave to go to grandma and grandpa’s house so . . that’s what I’m doing!
Hope you’re all enjoying time with family/friends!
