Christmas 2020 was one of the best christmases weve had as a family. It was simple, low stress and filled with so much joy.
Christmas is always a special time, and this year was definitely the best Christmas ever! The cold weather, being able to wear cosy clothes, fires and just a Christmas spirit that can’t be beaten. Ireland is magical, being here with the person I love most in this world has been wonderful. You don’t need to exchange gifts when you are married to the best present in the world. So cheesy, I know, I can literally spread that cheese on bread and enjoy a toasted sandwich! but its true, there is just something about blasting the Christmas carols and watching a lot of Christmas movies that brings out everything you are grateful for or just a whole lot of boring old person vibes. Whatever it is, I sure like it.
We celebrated with feasting on a lot of food, in true Christmas fashion, but can gluten free, sugar free and vegan really be binge eating? We actually ate small amounts and binge ate the rest the next day. We are crazy like that.
^^ That awkward moment when your cauliflower looks like a roasted brain. Roasted brain for dinner anyone? It was remarkable delicious. I could do with another one right now. Garlic and herb deliciousness right here.
^^ Cabbage rolls stuffed with rice and kidney beans, mashed parsnips, roasted cauliflower and a delicious Brussel sprouts and kale stir fry. Take me back now.
^^ Yes, Carl does work as an elf part time. Christmas time he turns into the happiest elf around while I point at an empty chair inviting you over.
^^ Table manners nowhere in sight!
^^ When you can’t stop talking about your brain like centrepiece you start taking ridiculous photos. Obviously!
^^ Even cut up this looks good.
Christmas time, is always a great time to talk about future plans, what we want for the new year and projects in the making. How was your Christmas?
