DECEMBER

DECEMBER IS FOR CHRISTMAS COOKIES & SPIKED EGG NOG

Setting up the holiday spirit with Christmas tree, all the lights & cheesy pizzas

Surprise visits home - starts with food to go, Whole Food breakfasts, & lunches out @ Blatt

When in Des Moines, Tacopocalypse is the only pit stop & maza fries & fried eggs are a must. 

Finally some homemade meals to refresh for a Christmas in Texas - spaghetti squash, gnocchi, & stuffed shells. 

The Texas-trip begins
First things first - Rise No1 with mom & sister - all the details here

Next Up, Christmas Ever dinner with fancy steaks, homemade pumpkin gnocchi, tomato tart, & brussel sprout pomegranate kale salad. Oh my word...amazing. 

Christmas Day breakfast, Cedar Creek brews & flatbreads.

Dave's brews & reubens, bbq daddy-daughter date (from Baby Back Shak) & the casual latte in 70 degree December weather. 

Back in Iowa City - welcomed home with the one and only Wig & Pen. 

Now's time for some greens & never keeping my New Years Resolutions.
