Here we are on December 25th, celebrating a very MERRY CHRISTMAS once again. It's truly my favorite time of year. :) As soon as the Brown bunch was out of bed, breakfast was in the making. A generously-filled omelette for each of us, cooked on our new non-stick skillet from Santa: chopped hot dogs (Applegate seems to go over well with my tummy), peeled & chopped zucchini, chopped button mushrooms, spinach, salt, & pepper. Positively Christmas-y & delicious!!!! We then had somewhat of a "dessert" for breakfast: LOBSTER!!!! Thanks dad! It was tender, juicy, perfectly grilled, & incredible. Loved ❤❤❤ IT! Lunch was unnecessary after such a large breakfast. 

Then the rest of the day rolled on. Presents were opened, s were warmed, pictures were taken, laughs were released, love ❤❤❤ was in the air. It was wonderful as always. Even our adorable little dog, Zoie, had a marvelous day & indulged in a big crunchy chunk of carrot! I spent the afternoon flipping through my newest cook books, dad passed the time reading his brand spankin' new Grateful Dead scrapbook, & momma peacefully napped up in my bedroom. Picture-perfect day? I'd have to say such is true.   

Not before long, dinner was being served. Grilled drumsticks marinated in a new spice blend I got from Santa, lemon juice (from about 2 lemons), olive oil (enough to prevent them from sticking to the grill pan), salt, pepper, & garlic (about 3 or 4 cloves), & roasted brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, & pepper (the staple food for the holidays, my favorite!!!!!!). :) Can you say YUMMY?! Who needs dessert when you've got chicken & brussels sprouts? I had planned on making some gorgeous almond flour waffles for dessert but my engine gave out before I had the chance. Tomorrow shall be the day! Look out for pictures of our new waffle maker! 

Santa Claus has come & gone, presents were given & received, food was cooked & enjoyed, & I have read & written myself silly. Time to get some much-needed sleep! :) I hope you all had a day that didn't skip a beat, that warmed your hearts, & maybe even tickled your feet! Hugs & best wishes!
