How was your Christmas, darlings? We celebrated over the weekend since my sis-in-law had to work yesterday. This was fine by us, because on actual Christmas day, Hal got to also celebrate Jewish style with a movie and Chinese food. We saw Life of Pi. Favorite flick of the year, hands down.
Our first Christmas as husband & wife and auntie & uncle was just perfect. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know we went a little crazy with Christmas crafts. And late night poker, which I dominated, ahem. Every year, my family selects a different international cuisine for Christmas dinner. This time, we chose to have an Israeli feast! All-vegetarian, of course.
I made hummus (with extra lemon and garlic). Hal made challah bread. Christopher made potato kugel. Akiko made eggplant moussaka. My dad made kibbutz salad. And my mom made spinach bourekas, vegan lamb skewers, and honey cake with mint tea for dessert. It was divine. And naturally, we stuffed ourselves silly.
Tell me about your holiday celebrations. I'd love to hear!
