Christmas Eve my mom and I did our annual holiday baking that I mentioned before. This year we didn't add to many extra cookies to the baking list. However, I'm excited to soon share with you some of our favorite recipes. These are the finished products....
As if we hadn't spent enough time in the kitchen already, Christmas day we prepared (and by we I mean mostly mom) a delicious meal.
We had pan seared salmon with a béarnaise sauce, collard greens, smoked gouda macaroni and cheese, and bacon wrapped scallops with a bourbon glaze. And for dessert....COOKIES!
Lunch was followed by opening gifts.
Everyone got some really nice things. Whit and I received some beautiful handmade serving pieces from my parents. I can't wait to put them to good use.
The guys got some Georgia Boots....you can see the excitement.
And Mom got a cute little kayak.
We all had a very Merry Christmas!

After lunch we went back to our house, exchanged gifts, and sat outside to enjoy the nice weather we were having.
We had a great time with both of our families over the holidays. Now we have just a few days left to recharge the batteries before the NYE festivities begin!
