Hello my friends â€“ I know many of you are probably enjoying the holiday today, but I wanted to pop in and say hello! As you know, weâ€™re in Pittsburgh right now spending the holidays with Mattâ€™s family. Iâ€™ll share some of the random food and fitness adventures later this week, but for now, enjoy our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in pictures and a few words. ðŸ™‚ Thank you for being here â€“ and have a wonderful week!
Christmas eve = celebrating Hanukkah in honor of my sister-in-law Morgana, who is Jewish! ðŸ™‚
Matzo ball soup (Iâ€™d never had this before â€“ it was yummy!):
Dinner was beef + potato latkes + broccoli!
Christmas morning â€“ looks like Santa came!
Christmas jammies (those are our nephews â€“ so cute!):
Hilarious Pinterest fail (actually, it was an old family recipe for monkey bread, and Mattâ€™s mom took some liberties that didnâ€™t quite work out â€“ lol!) â€“ donâ€™t worry, it still tasted good!
The makings of a delicious egg casserole â€“ eggs got poured on top.
Post-stocking but pre-tree breakfast:
Post-present extravaganza run! I love running on Christmas â€“ everything is so quiet and still. We had the streets to ourselves!
All dolled up for Christmas dinner!
The best napkins:
Amuse bouche â€“ beets sandwiched with goat cheese. Delicious!
Dessert! Iâ€™m not a huge chocolate person but that chocolate fudge pie â€“ omg. Amazing.
Whatâ€™s the most delicious thing you ate in the past few days?
Anyone else get in a fun run on Christmas day? ðŸ™‚
