Posts Tagged ‘christmas in the city’

Are you sick of looking at Christmas party food yet? Nope? Good. Soooo I mentioned going to a party Christmas Eve at Jeff’s. Well we returned Christmas Day for round two of food, friends, and festivities. This is part of the spread above. The turkey is from Jive Turkey in Brooklyn which is freaking awesome. They sell all kinds of fried turkeys. We had roasted garlic and jerk turkey. YUM! Apparently you can spend seven or eight hours waiting in line during Thanksgiving.

My contribution was this salad. It’s actually a recipe from my Aunt J and I had to make the dressing and coat almonds with sugar to make it soooo very delicious.

Also there was green bean casserole:

This is before it was done being topped with Frosted Flakes. Yep, FROSTED flakes. Ha.

One of my favorite pictures from the evening comes from when all six of us ladies were sitting on the couches while all the guys were working in the kitchen. AWESOME! And we were all wearing different colored/patterned tights.

Aaand here’s the whole crew:

After we had dinner and dessert we played this game called Quelf which was hilarious and makes you do slightly embarrassing things. It was fun. And I thiiiiink that is my last Christmas post so Merry Christmas one more time. :)

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas…

So this year’s Christmas was a little off the norm. Usually I’m at home in Detroit with my family but this year there were some different traveling plans and moving plans in my family so I decided to stay in New York. It’s funny because at first I thought it would be a super chill Christmas watching movies the whole time, but turns out quite a few people I knew stayed in town! My friend Missy stayed with me a couple nights (I’m housesitting for some friends) and we tried to keep some of our family’s traditions even though we weren’t with them. For Missy all she needed was some chocolate milk and I needed to start Christmas morning by making cinnamon rolls. Mmm! Also you can see some pretty Christmas cookies from Ladybird (same as Two Little Red Hens) and some cut up fruit. It was pretty perfect.

Missy also made a traditional Spanish tortilla. She’s not Spanish but she’s studied abroad there with MSU and really loves the culture. I really loved the tortilla.

Mmmm. On Christmas Eve we went to my friend Jeff’s apartment for some hors d’oeuvres, eggnog cocktails, and Scattergories.

Who loves Christmas?
