Merry Christmas Eve EVE!! (Yes, it’s such a thing…at least to me it is).
It’s been a productive day over here already, thanks to an early wakeup time. Being the raging party animal that I am these days (haha), I was falling asleep on the couch last night by about 9pm (while watching The Santa Clause 2 on ABC Family). Finally, around 10:30, I moved it on into bed and called it a night, which had me up nice and early by about 7am this morning.
I knew that I needed to make a trip to the grocery store, and figured I might as well go sooner than later to beat the crowds. So I grabbed a Clif Z Bar and headed out the door.
Grocery shopping at 7:30am on a Sunday is a wonderful, amazing thing, my friends. I think I had to deal with about three people the whole time, and I was in and out of there in no time flat. Gotta love that!
While I was there, I couldn’t help but notice the wonderful aromas coming from the bakery, so I wound up grabbing myself a bran muffin (still warm) out of the bakery case. Once I got home and unpacked, I enjoyed a breakfast that looked similar to this…
Only make that a full muffin and take away the Chobani.
Errr, okay so really, I guess it didn’t look much like this? Oh well…I didn’t take a photo and I needed a visual, so you guys get the idea.
After breakfast was finished, I got to prepping a batch of Christmasy brownies to bring over to my in-law’s house for dinner tonight.
These babies will be getting topped with a generous layer of my cream cheese frosting once they’re cooled. Yummmm.
While I was at the store this morning, I also made sure to get all of the ingredients that I’ll need in order to make THESE…
Because our Christmas day is always so busy, Jay and I decided that we’ll be celebrating our own little Christmas morning on Christmas Eve…complete with homemade cinnamon rolls. I. Can. Not. Wait.
I promise…I really do eat more than just junk these days. It just may not look like it right now.
I’m wondering if they’d be alright if I make them later today but don’t bake them until tomorrow…what do you guys think? Will it work? Or do I make and bake them today and just reheat and frost them tomorrow? Hmmm…
