And this was our place Christmas morning.
That scerene setting however, quickly turned into this.
Taylor enjoyed it though.
After presents, I set out on my main mission of the day: to make our dessert. It was a rather ambitious mission. I decided to make a red velvet cake, the most Christmas-y dessert I could think of. This was the recipe I chose. I was somewhat apprehensive about making it though as the recipe said it was an "intermediate" skill level. I am more of a seasoned novice.
In case you haven't made red velvet cake before, this is how you make a red velvet cake.
Got it? Good. And here was the finished product.
I made Mike try it first and give me his honest opinion.
Of course, the rest of our meal deserves some applause as well. We had ham, rolls, cranberry sauce from a can (my favorite), green bean casserole and mashed potatoes.
It was all delish, and most of it, was actually made by my man. I should also note that I drank a particularly tasty beverage (or three) this afternoon: cranberry juice, vodka and a club soda.
So that was our Christmas day in a nutshell. In summary: presents, baking, eating, drinking and now football. I hope your day has been just as lovely.
From me and my entire crew, we'd like to say Merry Christmas to you.
