Outside the three varieties of hummus that I made as an appetizer (btw- no idea what the plural form of hummus is either haha), I also made a cauliflower gratin as a side dish. I used this food and wine recipe, but replaced the broccoli with a green variety of cauliflower, the cheddar with Gruyere, and eliminated the olives. It is MUCH lighter than other gratin recipes I've had in the past (no cream!!) and is totally delicious:
I also made up another batch of graham cracker pancakes on Christmas Day. This time, I used 1 cup of graham cracker crumbles and 1/2 cup of flour (vs. 3/4 of each). I will definitely continue to make the pancakes with this ratio- so delicious!:
Saturday was a day of working out (taught Body Step), running errands & cleaning. Josh and I got the whole house cleaned and caught up on lots of laundry. We also enjoyed dinner out at Mellow Mushroom.
Today, my parents, sister, brother-in-law, and my niece came over to our house for football. I set out a few easy appetizers, some mixed nuts:
And tortilla chips, pretzels and salsa:
I also made up a big batch of Aggie's pulled pork:
Which was served with cooked peppers & onions, bbq sauce, big pickles, cole slaw, and fruit salad (not pictured). This is my dad's plate:
I made up a monster salad with the cooked peppers & onions, fruit salad, black beans, salsa, romaine & broccoli slaw. We also enjoyed some delicious desserty treats my mom brought along.
Now we're relaxing! Did you have a nice Christmas (if you celebrate)? What was your favorite foodie part? Do you guys have New Years plans??
