Have a holly jolly Christmas!

Merry Christmas / Solstisce/ Festivus, everyone! So far it's been a perfect day spent in the company of family and food. What's better than that?

My parents, Ari and I all decided that before we could open presents, we needed to eat some Trying to Heal goodies. I had a chocolate-covered cashew butter sandwich, which was even better than I remembered. I'll be sad when these guys are gone!

Here's a little re-cap, courtesy of master photographer and boyfriend Ari:

Trying on his new duds:

Baking gingerbread cookies!

We had a little difficulty with the dough; after about two minutes of being out of the freezer, it would get really soft and sticky and totally uncuttable.

Lilveggiepatch family Christmas favorite: baked German apple pancake.

With maple syrup for dipping, vitamins and Emergen-C:

I was still hungry so I heated up a Boca Spicy Chik'n burger and had it with ketchup and mustard.

Here's some of my foodie-related gifts, including much-needed cutting boards!

Every Christmas we see a movie; today we're going to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Hope it's good! Merry Christmas and have a GREAT day!
