Did you have a wonderful Christmas? Is your belly still full? haha
Both Lori and I had a wonderful time with family and enjoyed lots of good food and wine.
Lori had a great time in Atlanta as I enjoyed the nice warm FL weather. Neither one of us had a white Christmas, did you?
Even crazy Jax had a wonderful Christmas vacation 🙂
We both enjoyed a lovely breakfast…we love donuts! We made the cinnamon sugar donuts from our Purely Classic Cookbook. (Lori made some food to bring with her.)
So good! Moist and tender gluten-free baked donuts.
All the “kids” loved their presents!
We both loved all of our gifts too!
Donuts for lunch, always a good decision!
I made homemade eggnog for the first time!! So good! Not only was it my first time making eggnog, but also my first time enjoying it.
Here is what I did if you are interested as I made it with less sugar and used coconut milk instead of heavy cream and milk!
And it came out perfectly, even the whole family enjoyed a little.Print
