Whether you’re Jewish, Christian, Atheist, or some other weird cult it doesn’t matter…Everyone Loves Christmas. I don’t believe in the virgin birth and I don’t in Santa, but seriously, how much fun is it to drink to excess with family and friends and get presents? I find it awesome, and quite often this special time of year has delivered some of my most precious memories. I wish I was Marilu Henner and could remember every single Christmas memory, but I’m a 31 year old former pothead that has trouble remembering my girlfriend’s breakfast order, never mind what the hell it was I got for Jesus’ birthday when I was 12. However, I’m going to try and run through my favorite Christmas memories in somewhat of a chronological order….
I’m sure you’ve already done your shopping and wrapping and planning for this weekend, but….just in case you haven’t….I think this is a sweet gift idea!
This cheesecake recipe came from my friend Ginger, and I make it multiple times per year! I made it for Jay’s birthday at Thanksgiving this year and it was a hit!
To hold it’s shape, cheesecake should be made in a springform pan – you can buy them anywhere for not much money, so don’t freak out. Why not buy a pan, make a cheesecake, and give the cake and the pan as a gift with the recipe attached?
I say go for it.
Last week Lindsay and I took on the daunting task of hiking up one of South Carolina’s most beautiful and iconic sites: Table Rock. It had been years since my last summit of the rock, and I was really looking forward to our adventure to the top. According to the trail guide, it is a “strenuous” walk in the woods, and I decided that it would be best if Lindsay did not know this information. Ignorance is bliss especially if you’re expecting a lovely, low energy nature hike.
Also, I find it FABULOUS to photograph my food on rocks.
Not really. We were hiking. More on that later.
I’ve also never met a body part that smells like tuna, so I don’t get what all the “ewwwww grosssssss” fuss is about, but that’s just me.
This is a simple, fresh combination of flavors that I think you’ll love. Let me know what you think!
Jay came home and said “you know I fed both of them, right? I don’t hate Callie THAT much.” THANKS. In other news, that cute baby is my sister Olivia, who just had surgery last week and has a rough time with pain meds, but she’s a trooper and is feeling better every day!
She’s 18 now. I just like that picture. Mainly because baby boobies are cute. If they’re on babies.
