What food did you overindulge in today? (Christmas day)
« on: December 25, 2012, 07:43:54 PM »
Happy holidays, all.

My answer is easy:  Mashed potatoes & gravy.  I ate at a relative's house and she makes award-winning  (imo) mashed potatoes! mmmm!  I know there are gravy-haters on the boards, but I love the stuff.  ;D  I even brought some home, along with a big piece of peach cobbler!

(sorry, corrected the typo :-[ in previous title)

Broccoli and cheese sauce.  I was unaware, until today, that you COULD eat too much broccoli.

I think it tends to be a, shall we say - gassy vegetable.  I love it but overindulging can cause some discomfort that other veggies might not.

Ham. I made ham and covered it in butter with nothing else. Some of the best Ham I've ever had.

A tie between the traditional cheeseball (well, technically it wasn't exactly a cheeseball per se; my aunt kept it in a little bowl) with crackers and a southwest dip with tortilla chips. oh my deity they were both so good!

EVERYTHING!

Let me explain. Today was the first time EVER that my Husband took over the cooking reins from my Mom (all live together) So it was his first time cooking any root vegetables, Brussels sprouts, or a Turkey.

Everything he made turned to edible gold! The turkey he made was the moistest, juiciest and most tender bird I've ever had, anywhere. It fell off the bone, and was just amazing.

I actually ate a full dinner for the first time in 10 months! (BTW, feeling TONS better these days, and my scars are minimal!)

Melted cheese and pepper jam. A friend of mine made some great jam, and recommended we put it on top of Brie and microwave it till soft. We don't like Brie so much so I did a Camembert-like cheese and, yes, I ate much more of it than I should have ;D

Chocolate-chip banana pancakes.  It's our traditional Christmas brunch fare.  SO tasty...

Honey baked ham. Nom Nom Nom Nom!

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!

Cheese covered...everything.

We had fondue for dinner -meat in broth, meat in oil and...cheese.
Veggies and fresh (still warm from the oven!) bread dipped in a warm cheesy blend.

Too much cheese. But soooo good!

Peach & blueberry baked French toast this morning. I ate TONS of it!

DH's grandfather makes the most divine popcorn balls, and I think I had four of those after our large meal this afternoon.

And just this evening, champagne...oops!  :P We got a nice bottle from my parents this morning and stuck it in the snow to get cold. It was quite delicious, but I do have a serious case of hiccups now!
Sell crazy somewhere else, we're all stocked up here.
