Enough food for an African village.

by Elizabeth on December 13, 2013

How crazy is it that Christmas is less than two weeks away? I know you’re all busy so I’m keeping it short and sweet this Friday! Oh, and I was happy to see so many of you enjoyed yesterday’s post! I’m also nosy, so I guess that’s why I like reading them also ;-)
Yesterday we finished up a little Christmas shopping and had to be home by 10:30 to sign for a UPS package. Thank you UPS for requesting my presence at 10:30 and then showing up at 4:30!!! Just kidding, I know they’re super busy at this time of year. Plus I had a ton of prep to do for our Sauvageau family Christmas this weekend so it worked out nicely!
I made broccoli cheese soup:

Cinnamon roll bread pudding:

Green chile corn casserole:

Cinnamon sugar pecans (recommendation from a reader!) :

And sausage cheese balls:

Clearly I still have a problem with moderation… I either make enough food in one day to feed an African village for a month or I lay on the couch all day and moving isn’t even an option. Awesome, right?
Finally the packages came!!! And after dinner we needed to get out so Noah and I drove around the neighborhood looking at lights with hot chocolate, blankets, seat warmers on, and heat on 90 degrees full blast in my face. We don’t mess around when it’s 41 degrees outside.

Headed to take Noah to the doctor tomorrow and finish prep for the GENDER REVEAL PARTY tomorrow!!!

Have an awesome weekend!

What’s your favorite thing to bake/cook at Christmas?
Do a lot of people hang Christmas lights where you live?

I have an amazing blueberry French toast casserole that I make for Christmas morning…. That and a sausage bread roll are our favorite homemade holiday treats!

Love broccoli cheese soup! I guess the only thing I make around Christmas are cookies/desserts. My parents are divorced and I’m super close with my aunt and uncle so we have 4 places to visit between Christmas Eve & Day. And of course I bring some wine to each! El Pasoans do not decorate nearly as much as they do in my hometown-it’s quite a bummer considering how much milder the weather is here. But we’ll be back home next week- I can’t wait!

I pretty much love any baked good at Christmas. :) I’m not baking as much this year as I have in years past though. We’ve just been so busy!

It seems to depend on what neighborhood you’re in around here in UT. Our neighborhood has quite a bit of lights, but I think it’s because it’s a younger neighborhood. Other neighborhoods don’t have as much – I’m assuming just because of the weather.
