well you saw Michelle’s brief Christmas holiday highlights now my turn to share my weekend highlights. as you may have already noticed we spent Christmas separately this year. I went with Gary to see his family in Raleigh, NC. it was fun to head back to where I used to live before moving to Charlotte. plus Gary’s oldest brother and wife just had their first baby. the first grandson for Gary’s parents so a real exciting time for the family!
before heading out of town I made myself some mostly raw pumpkin pie mousse to be my dessert over the weekend
made Gary and I some gluten free pumpkin baked donuts with pecan coating for the road – it is an updated recipe that we plan to share soon. it was delicious and the perfect road trip breakfast this holiday. *they are not minis donuts they are regular size, the plate I grabbed for road trip was just that big
then we were off to get the Christmas celebration started plus I finally got to see my future nephew.
then after hanging out with Gary’s family a few of us were off to go workout. I ended up doing a walk/run while Gary and his dad played some tennis.
then it was time for presents
my dinner looked something like this (this is my dinner from last night but it pretty much was the same thing). when traveling to friends or other family members houses I usually bring my own food. it just makes it easier on everyone I feel. there are moments when I feel silly that I bring my own food but if my tummy happy and I am happy then I feel it is worth it.
be back with great recipes to share with you all.
Twins Questions: Do you bring your own food to friends or family’s houses? Do you like it when someone with ‘certain’ food habits bring their own food or does it bother you?
