A couple of years ago The Hubs and I, in the midst of a nightmarish flight delay fest at the airport, decided we were going to stay home for the holidays from now on. Our new tradition is to host all our friends on Christmas eve, have a traditional holiday meal, exchange gifts/stockings and play board games. On Christmas day, the two of us exchange our own gifts and stay in our PJ’s all day long watching movies and eating leftovers. Its divine! Here’s a little preview of my prep so far this week!
Getting my brine ready for the ol’ turkey
The coconut cream cake filling needs several days to absorb
Yes, that’s 6 layers!!!!!
In between brining and baking I’ve been snacking on the box of See’s Candies my grandma sent to me. Good thing its been raining so I don’t feel so guilty about not getting outside and going for a run!
