WIAW: Some Holiday Eats

Happy Holidays!! I had such a wonderful time visiting family in New York and celebrating FW’s first Christmasukah. He’s 6 months old now – woweee! – but still too young to really know what was going on. He did have some fun eating the paper that gifts came in, though. Speaking of eating, here is a bunch of holiday eats for today’s What I Ate Wednesday. Instead of just one day, here’s a sample of some of the great food I had during the holidays.

Breakfasts were a spin on what I usually have – some oats with dried fruit, brewer’s yeast and this time topped with my mom’s granola.

Lunches were leftovers … so no real food pics except trust me – see what we had for dinner and picture that for lunch 🙂

Of course there was plenty of snacking, including appetizers each night like fruit, cheese, nuts, hummus and baba.20161225_174328

Now onto the meals. We had ham one night for dinner. Lasagna. Chicken rollatini. All of those are sadly unpictured. But another night,  we feasted on a giant turkey breast.20161223_184312

And butternut squash. 20161223_184453

Oh, side dishes included pasta and noodle pudding. Because you can never have too much pasta 🙂20161224_193537

We also had this beautiful chicken one night. It was so good, I’ll have to make it sometime soon!img_20161222_194137_615

Don’t worry – while I was incredibly lazy for most of my trip, I did get in 2 walks and 2 runs. Doesn’t FW look so happy to be with me?

After dinner, I often had tea. And sometimes an after dinner drink 🙂20161225_205031

And of course- dessert! We feasted on cookies and cake each night. My favorite? orange cake (not pictured) and the ginger shortbread cookies and these gingersnaps. I have a thing for ginger.  20161224_205137

Yum…is it bad that I miss those holiday eats already? My mouth is watering reliving them for today’s What I Ate Wednesday!
Some questions for you:

  • What is your go-to holiday cookie?
  • Did you travel for the holidays?
