Merry Christmas! Christmas Eve menu

Merry Christmas!

Nick made out with tons of toys, a rocking chair and clothes.
It was definitely more exciting opening his gifts than mine!

The spread for Christmas Eve:

multigrain cracker and chips,

Cheese, Hot salsa

Hummus and veggies

Spinach and artichoke dip (so easy to make!)

Toast circles with herbs de provence

Spanakopita (that I made way too big) and
pigs in the blanket (only non vegetarian item,ha!)

Spinach and mushroom veggie lasanga!

Everything was so good! I ate way too much! Good thing I ran yesterday morning and then went out again in the cold with my sister so I ran almost 11 miles on the day. This morning and all last night I felt awful. I hate when you overdo it. Running definitely made me feel better - just 4 miles this morning and I want to just be active all day in preparation for tonight's dinner, where I have to TAKE IT EASY!


  1. Wow. You guys definitely ate better than we did. ;) Hope you had a great day!

  2. Looks delicious! And I totally know what you mean about how much fun it is to open the kids' gifts; one of MY favorite gifts was actually one of Norah's.

  3. the
    Spinach and artichoke dip looks great! I'd love to know how you make it! Is there dairy in it? I am gonna poke around and I'll probably find the recipe! I used to love me some spin & arti dip but the past few yrs since being strict about dairy free, I just cant.

    Merry Xmas ND!!!!!

  4. That spread looks SO delicious. I'll be coming to your house for Christmas next year!
