I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday!
Jon and I went to his parents’ house and celebrated with his family, which was great fun and very low-key. We played with the nephews, watched movies with his siblings and had a generally great visit! My mother-in-law was so happy that I’d brought all my baking – she hadn’t had time to make any, so that worked out very well. I had made an additional batch of Speculoos since I was almost out of them, and another batch of fudge the day before we left, so there was a little of everything. She was more than happy to hang on to the remainders so I didn’t have to bring them home, which was good ‘cuz we’re the only ones to eat it here and when I say ‘we’, I really mean me.
So in recovery from all of Christmas’s indulgences, last night’s dinner was more simple fare – seasoned baked chicken breasts, crunchy raw green veggies and Dorie’s Spiced Butter-Glazed Carrots.
