And some sort of breakfast casserole that involved grits (when your father is from Virginia and North Carolina, you eat grits). My mother saved a serving of uncooked grits for me (I let them cool too long, so while they look lumpy, they were still good), and I had them alongside a tofu scramble.
A few presents exchanged, snowing outside, and snuggled near the fireplace.
Terra, my parents' Sheba Inu was exhausted after all of the present opening.
Remy with one of his new squeak animals:
Before heading back to my aunt and uncle's farm for the main holiday meal, I prepared some dry roasted cauliflower and then sauteed some kale, garlic, coleslaw mix, and spices.
There was also some green beans, corn, cranberries, and rolls on the table which I also enjoyed. Mixed nuts and more vegan chex mix throughout the rest of the day. It was snowy and just about zero degrees, so Remy couldn't frolick on the farm.
Instead, Remy tried to play with his dog-cousins: Cash and June, both chocolate labs.
Cash was found as a pup wandering in a field, and they got June as a pup from a neighbor.
Wednesday: tofu scramble and wheat toast.
Napping and road trip.
Upon arrival, I didn't feel like going anywhere and so whipped up a quick Creamy Avocado Pasta.
It was a lovely holiday all the way around, and I can't believe the New Year is around the corner. And, in a little over a week, I'll be back with the freshman. *sigh*
I will now be returning to normal sized posts. Thanks for reading! :)
