Feeling a little over served after Christmas? (or know it’s coming on Jan. 1) Well, you know what they say….. the hair of the dog that bit you is the best cure…. or something like that. All I know is that a hearty breakfast and a killer bloody mary can do the trick any day! I have scoured the Internet to find some awesome alternative bloody mary recipes. I’ll also share my own classic recipe.
My friend, Kelly, always knows how to make folks smile. And her Vodka Christmas Cake is no exception. Read, laugh and repeat this recipe. It’s a classic.
Christmas cards are so much fun to receive, don’t you think? It’s such a nice change to get something in the mail other than a bill! And for those we don’t see too often, its a great way to see how their family has grown and changed. I really enjoy displaying all of these greetings in my home. However, I am prone to boredom, as we have already established, so I like to change up how I display them each year. Here are some easy and creative ideas for Christmas card displays to keep it fresh.
After the gifts are opened and everyone is happy, the wrapping paper is cleaned up and the coffee is made, who really wants to jump right up and make a big family breakfast? I don’t. That’s why, every year, I make a breakfast casserole. (See last year’s here) It can be made in advance and reheated. It makes for a very relaxing Christmas morning.
I know you all have been waiting for this…. I have too. I finally feel like I have finished decorating for the holidays. It took long enough. I changed it up a bit this year. My usual colors were red and green. This year I went white and silver. Dreaming of a white Christmas, anyone?
