Are you still full from yesterday? haha We are…although we are excited to eat leftovers today!
Somehow we managed to take very few pictures of our day. Our hands were either holding our niece, throwing toys for the dogs, cleaning dishes, making food, cleaning more dishes, etc.
Everyone came over for hearty rich breakfast. Then it was time to get in the kitchen.
Sipped on mimosa while we got all the food ready. We enjoyed grapefruit based, while everyone else enjoyed orange juice, which were all freshly squeezed.
Grain-free vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookie cake!!
We took our pumpkin coconut flour chocolate chip cookies and made into a cookie cake.
It worked beautifully!!
Fire by the pool It has been chilly here in south FL.
Then it was time to eat.
We cooked up – honey citrus glazed ham (ham we bought from us wellness meats) oven roasted turkey, smoked grilled turkey, twice cooked brussel sprouts, baked kabocha squash, sauteed red cabbage, plantain bread stuffing, and sourdough bread (store bought).
Twice cooked brussel sprouts.
We did something different. Here is what we did: First we steamed up the brussel sprouts. Second placed them on a baking tray and coated them in coconut oil and some dried rosemary. Third baked them in oven at 350 for about 30 minutes.
Perfectly cooked brussel sprouts!
We also made a vegan broccoli casserole!! We will share the recipe soon as everyone loved it.
It was a tweak to an old recipe of ours.
Seconds were enjoyed…of both food and wine
Our niece was the entertainment for the night!
Or should we say these two crazy monsters were the highlight of the evening.
Classic vizsla moment!
unbaked pumpkin pie with a chocolate crust (we did not have irish moss, so used cashews)
Sorry we forgot to take pictures of the full dessert spread. But we did make a family recipe of a traditional pumpkin pie that everyone enjoyed, while us girl enjoyed some raw pumpkin chocolate pie.
Many slices of pie were enjoyed plus other yummy desserts
Joy is a big girl now!
What a day. Left us all exhausted with happy full bellies.
