Friday Five - Christmas Eve Eve

Friday, December 23, 2016

The day before Christmas Eve. All "Eve" holidays are better than the actual holiday because the day does not have to live up to the expectation of the real holiday. People are also usually off work on "eve's" so it is like everyone's Friday night!!!
Happy Christmas Eve Eve!! Let's get Hammered!!!

Indeed. Let's. Well some of us are actually working but not for long. I see bourbon and eggnog in my near future. Soooo looking forward to my long weekend, here's what I've got going on.

I am laying low tonight baking cookies and wrapping gifts, enjoying my kids and the tree. Ava and I will be making these by her request, Oreo Truffles. Only 3 ingredients but we are adding some peppermint because Christmas.

Christmas Eve is our big dinner. I do a prime rib, wedge salad and this year a new twist... Home Made Lobster Mac and Cheese. I am sure I will be enjoying this for days.

Lobster Mac and Cheese

Christmas Eve is a big traditional celebration for us Polish people so we will be sharing the Oplatek wafer before dinner. I did this as a young child with my family and I just love the tradition. The wafer symbolizes many things in the Polish Catholic tradition but the idea is that you come to the table with forgiveness and well wishes in your heart. Each person breaks off a piece of the wafer starting with the eldest, you exchange a kiss and a hug usually with the next person and say something like the words on this image. Even our beloved pets participate!

Christmas Day we will do presents in the morning and breakfast with Mimosa's for Mommy. Then we veg for the rest of the day. Until my kids go to their Grandma's with Dad for dinner. I am toying with the idea of maybe hitting a movie myself. I am a James Franco fan and this starts today. Please watch the trailer, it's so freaking funny!

Stay tuned for details on the New Year link up next week! Hope you guys have a great Christmas!
