It’s rainy and grey today which means I have to start thinking about what I’m making for dinner at 9:00am. There’s something about wintery albeit California wintery weather that just makes you want to be in a cozy casita getting your cook on, right?

I’m looking at three recipes on pinterest to merge into one super recipe. I basically want to bake broccoli covered in a butternut squash cheese sauce and top it with Aidell’s sausage. Sounds tasty and medium level healthy, que no? I promise to let you know the broccoli and butternut squash adventure turns out.

Thank you, Cyber Monday. I am about half way done with my Christmas shopping which lets me breathe a small sigh of relief. I do NOT like Christmas shopping. It’s stressful, expensive, and just yeah not my thing. I love seeing familia during the holidays, catching up, eating too much, and drinking too much. Seriously, why can’t that be enough?? Too bad Thanksgiving has such lame decorations or I’d be about that….I love me a fresh smelling Christmas tree. Decorating a tree and drinking spiked cider, hell yeah! I make a wicked spiked cider, kids.

This weekend I get to see some of my crazy Mexican familia and we make our Christmas tamales. For those that don’t know, tamales are hella work! We make over 100 so we do it early and just freeze those bad boys until Christmas Eve. My familia does pork tamales and cheese with chili tamales. I’m all about the PORK!!! So yummy. For me, it’s not Christmas without tamales. My Uncle will also make us menudo which is another of my favorites and we’ll have cake for my Grandma’s birthday. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!!!!

What are your favorite things about Christmas time, Interwebbies?

Or what drives you most crazy, grinches πŸ™‚

Alright, peeps I gots to run.

  1. Absolutely love Mexican food. You made my mouth water!
    I love spending Christmas at home. Everyone leaves the city, and me, in peace(though there’s a few friends mail we’ll be collecting), and we can chill out at home. No getting used to lumpy beds, putting up with unpleasant family members, trying to find food I can eat.
    Ah, yes, home this Christmas and thrilled!

  2. Hey girl!

    I’ve never made homemade tamales, but I HAVE made cheese and apple empanadas, before! SOOOOO GOOD! I am also excited to hear about your broccoli covered in butternut squash cheese adventure. Hopefully your luck isn’t as bad as Ms. Cher’s was… πŸ˜‰

    Lastly, the only thing I really look forward to during the holidays, as far as food goes, is dad’s deviled eggs and my grandma’s corn pudding. Can’t wait. πŸ˜€
