Above is an ice sculpture from Ice Land on the Island. It’s the coldest place here. Beautiful sculptures!
Christmas is nearly here and I am sitting here planning what Jim and I are going to do to celebrate it. I feel like we have been on a holiday tear since Thanksgiving. Jim agrees with me that it is going to be just the two of us.
We are going to start the day off with Mass. Then come home for breakfast. That’s going to be a loaf of freshly baked French bread, smothered in Irish butter and jam. We will have grapefruit from the tree in our yard. Apple and cranberry compote. And of course our traditional Mimosas. One of my favorite breakfasts!
After breakfast, we will open presents. Listen to Christmas carols while drinking coffee. Normally, we would have a log in the fireplace. However, we are having unseasonably warm weather. Christmas is supposed to be in the 70s and likely sunny. If that happens, we will go biking around the island. We might even take the ferry to Bolivar. It’s so beautiful and often we get to see our dolphin friends.
By the time we get home, it’ll be time for dinner. Here is this year’s menu!
HAZELNUT CRANBERRY ROAST EN CROUTE(photo above)
A rich, hazelnut-infused vegetarian grain meat stuffed with Field Roast sausages, crystallized ginger, cranberries and apples – wrapped in a savory vegan puff pastry.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Buttermilk or Key Lime Pie
We will have a nice Merlot wine with that. Doesn’t that sound good. I am sorry that I don’t have photos, but I will be posting the recipes tomorrow.
Needless to say. We will be dosing off early after this kind of day.
