'Tis the New Year

So once upon a time I came back to school. Only to learn that I have no class on Mondays or Fridays. So therefore, I work hard 3 days a week and then eat cereal, watch episodes of 30 Rock and How I Met Your Mother (new fave). 

So tonight. As I watch Liz Lemon "lizzing" a combination of laughing and wizzing. I've decided that it's time to recap my wonderful christmas vacation. And dwell on the fact that I wish I was still there. 

But then as I looked through the pictures I took of my vaca. I found only three things. Food, Food and More Food. 

Apparently that's all I did. I found some others but here's what I did/made.

Once Upon A Time... My brother was super cool and got to open for HANA PESTLE. 

It was a pretty fun show.

Anna and I enjoyed some popcorn and freshly brewed root beer. From an actual Brewery!

The Beautiful hana pestle

My family : )

Peppermint Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Once upon a time my friend Schuyler and I decided to cook dinner together. We had a full indian spread!
Coconut Lamb Curry with a Nectarine Mint Chutney. Vegetable Masala. Rice. Naan and Indian Rice Pudding.
Completely made from scratch!

That's my NAAN rising. It was delicious.

I got a little crazy with the gift wrapping for my family. How cute are the stripes and polka dots?!


Once upon a time I made a bunch of things I found on Pinterest. Hence the Santa Hat Brownies.

                                                                       And then the Reindeer Gingerbread Cookies.
These were my own creation. Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes with Peppermint Buttercream. I love choco+mint!

Another Pinterest find. Hot Cocoa Cookies


Then Christmas came and my sibs and I received these lovely numbers.
gotta love grandma's wall paper.


Complete With BUTT FLAPS!

Then came New Years. We had a lovely dinner party complete with girly movies and ball dropping.
Chicken Pesto Pasta ala Kailey. Bread ala Heidi. Sparkling Juice ala Emily and spinach, pear, feta salad ala me!

I also made German Chocolate Cupcakes to bring in the New Year. mmm. Delicious.




All and All. I'd have to say Christmas Vacation was a blast. Lots of movies. Lots of baking. And spending time with my favorite people!
