Hello lovely people! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and if you’re off until the New Year, I hope you’re enjoying your long vacation 😉
This Christmas was special for me because I had the job of cooking and preparing a few meals. My mother, little sister and I were in the kitchen cookin’ up a storm! First, I helped my mother prepare her famous French Toast. She makes it every Christmas and I swear it tastes even better every year!
To prepare, I coated the pan with Pam, and then cut up one loaf of (day old) a French baguette. I let it sit over night, and then on Christmas morning, my mom added the rest of the ingredients. Below is a pic of the DELICIOUS finished product.
The next breakfast item I prepared and made myself. I saw this recepie on Pintrest (HERE) and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I figured Christmas was the perfect time! I (1) sprayed the muffin pan with Pam, (2) cracked enough eggs to fill each section, (3) added turkey bacon bits, shredded cheese, a dash of salt and pepper and then (4) placed it in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes (on 300 degrees).
They came out PERFECTLY! The taste was great, and they slid right out of the pan, leaving no mess! This meal is a perfect meal if you’re having guests because you can customize each egg if you want. Also, it’s great for kids because its quick to make, and small enough for them to enjoy with their hands 😉
The next thing I prepared was easy. I used about 6 boiled eggs and diced them into little tiny pieces. I also cooked about 6-7 turkey bacon strips. I then crumbled them up and stored them in a container (see the 1st picture above). Once we were ready to eat dinner, I cut up a lettuce head into different sections, and then added the bacon and egg over top of it. Last, the blue cheese dressing was drizzled on top. Here’s a pic of the finished wedge below (minus the dressing).
The last thing I want to share is my little sisters Christmas Mice. She prepared them after being inspired by one of my Dad’s co-workers chocolate mice. To make them, she used Oreo cookies (for the base), cherries (for the body/tail), Hershey’s kisses (for the face), almond slivers (for the ears) and food coloring for the eyes and the (green) mistletoe.
So as you can see, I’ve been a busy kitchen helper this week. I also cooked for Thanksgiving; I’m on a roll 😉 Now I’m not one for the kitchen but I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed cooking and preparing this holiday season with my family. When I become a Mrs. I’ll be more than ready to serve up some delicious meals to the hubby 😉
Until next time, take care and be blessed!
