Well, the holidays are officially behind us and a new year has begun. I wanted to share with you all some of the holiday treats we made and what we ate at our Christmas dinner. I tried a few new things and I’m glad I did, because I have a new favorite! I’d like to share with you a recipe for a fabulous green bean casserole. I had heard of people making this dish over Thanksgiving or Christmas, but I had never made it or even tried it myself, until this year. I don’t think I would have made this yummy side dish if I hadn’t taken A Happy & Healthy Holidays, from The Nourished Kitchen. This series was great by the way, and I now have a whole repertoire of wholesome holiday recipes. Some of the other recipes I tried included the chocolate fudge, sprouted flour gingerbread cookies, roasted chestnuts, and cinnamon-molasses cookies. From the Cheeseslave blog, I also made her recipes for raw eggnog, sprouted flour shortbread, and bacon-wrapped dates. On Christmas day we went over to my moms house. For dinner she made a traditional roast turkey, stuffing with giblets, mashed yams and squash, mashed potatoes with gravy, green bean casserole and caesar salad. For dessert we had eggnog cheesecake and Christmas cookies. Ok, I’m getting hungry now!
