Every child, and do I dare say even I, love to wake up on Christmas morning excited for the day's festivities!
The spirit of surprise, celebrating our Savior, families fighting over who really has the best recipe for that family favorite dish, and hoping that your husband got you something shiny instead of something that goes vroom and sounds like/is a vacuum. It's all a beautiful and memorable time!
A long with Christmas comes sugarplums and food comas, and visions of 'I shouldn't have eating 587 of grandma's homemade rolls' dancing in your head. Christmas morning is always a treat, whether it's sticky buns, cinnamon rolls, mile high pancakes, or a pan crackling with bacon. Everybody enjoys a great meal after opening presents!
Whether you want to indulge all the way or dip a carrot in some spinach dip and call it good, it's almost a necessity that the food be fun, enjoyable, and especially as memorable as your grandmothers rolls.
GREEN SMOOTHIES: Coconut water/milk, handful of spinach, dollop of PB, banana, sweetener of choice, & Ice. (For a chocolate minty version, add fresh mint leaves along with cocoa powder!)
CANDY CANE FRUIT: All that's needed is one banana and a handful of raspberries or chopped strawberries. Form into a stripped candy cane! (Also seen Here.)
Don't forget to have your littles close their eyes!
(Ignore that Sweet Pea is wearing Halloween Pumpkin Pajamas...)
Then after breakfast comes more eating, buttered rolls, and unbuttoned pants...
Don't you just love Christmas? :)
