The day after Christmas was extremely lazy. We drove into the little town by our house, but I wasn’t inspired to take even one shot. Well … ok … maybe I took a few of the little guy – I’m only human!
When we got home we just lazed around the fire, played cards, spent some time in the hot tub and ate leftovers. It was wonderful. WONDERFUL!
I made the big meal I was planning to make for Christmas for dinner. Everything was pretty good, but not fabulous. I’m glad I went with the pot pie for Christmas dinner! I was going to post a picture, but all of the ones I took are out of focus … argh! In any event, I made a beef tenderloin with a horseradish cream sauce, roasted beets and carrots and these garlicy mushroom things. I also made this kale and potato puree that got rave reviews on www.epicurious.com, but I must have done something completely wrong because it tasted exactly like paste and looked remarkably like nuclear waste. Eh. So I’m not perfect! Sue me.
The next morning I made the last of the Loved-Up Buttermilk Pancakes from some leftover mix, we packed and tidied up and got on the road. Aiman did really well again! I was so proud. I’m not kidding when I tell you the kid hates being strapped down in his car seat, I thought for sure he would be screaming for six hours. But instead, he just read the paper. My little genius.
Well, that’s the end of this Very Yosemite Christmas Tale. I hope everyone has as wonderful a Christmas as we did!
