Christmas Eve Diet Busters

One of our Christmas traditions is the buffet of delectable food we make for each other on Christmas Eve. Everyone makes something and we eat till we fall over.

This year's offerings included: Lindsey's Muddy Buddies. Her chocolate covered hands were...chocolaty.
 Brian's Venezuelan Potato Covered Meatballs. Deep fried, naturally.
 Cheese Stuffed Cheese- what could be better?
 Ben made caramel filled apples. That caramel is tough to cut!
 Peter's Self Saucing Pudding from New Zealand. Made with metric measurements.
 Shannon's Veggie Bars. The vegetables made us feel like were eating something that was somewhat healthy.
 Italian Baked Shrimp with legs and tails attached.
 Crab Won Tons. Lots of Crab Won Tons.
 In keeping with our corn dog tradition, I made the Pioneer Woman's Corn Dog Muffins. Tasty!
 All in all, it was a massive feast.
 Gus watched it all from his Christmas tree lair.
 After eating, we read the story of the Nativity from the scriptures and played the new game that Brian and Lindsey gave to us- Ticket To Ride. Bruce is now addicted to this game.
It was a fun Christmas Eve and we were happy to have our family together!
