Christmas Review


Hello!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and have recovered a little bit.  My husband and I had a wonderful Christmas alone and started our new Christmas Eve tradition by celebrating it Japanese style.  Trust me, going to KFC once a year is enough for me. I also made my Christmas cake!  It turned out very good.  The recipe I used is here.  We also had a nice, quiet Christmas Day.  My husband got me a Sriracha cookbook that I've already put to use (it's awesome).  What did you all get this year?  I'd love to know what kind of goodies you all got!

  1. Your cake looks gorgeous. Great job!

    This year I received a series of lovely small paintings that I can't wait to hang, and a wooden octopus necklace that is just so adorable I want to wear it with everything – whether it matches or not.

  7. In my family we do what we like to call a "Buy Your Own Damn Present" Christmas. We each spend a couple hundred dollars on ourselves, then bring what we bought to unwrap in front of everyone else. It works pretty well, everyone gets exactly what they want.

    1. I swear...I think more families should do that. There's no sense in spending lots of money on things that won't get used!

  8. Great tradition! I actually told my family about the Japanese tradition of KFC and they were super impressed and thought it made complete sense. Wouldn't have known that without your lovely blog. Seriously craving fried chicken now, and just like you, once a year is enough :)
