Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! And I’m so NOT ready..!
As is tradition, my dad and I will be going shopping for my mom tomorrow. If you missed my post about my favorite Christmas traditions (including the Christmas Eve shopping excursion), you can check it out HERE. Though, this year I’m a little nervous that my anxiety will get the better of me. Plus, we have NO idea what to get her, hahaha… okay, I lie, we have ONE idea…
I also need to wrap the presents; ones I’ve already purchased and the whatever we buy tomorrow. Maybe I should get a head start today…
Then we’ll be breaking with recent tradition and will have dinner at my parents house instead of making homemade pasta at mine. I am a little bummed about it, but it will be good. My mom is making bouillabaisse, so should be yummy! We’ll open presents tomorrow night, too.
In past years, I’ve also made sugar cookies from our family recipe on Christmas Eve. This year I’m going to make them today (Christmas Eve eve) instead, and have tomorrow as a backup should I need it!
On Christmas morning I’ll be making crowd favorite “bacon crack” to bring to my cousin’s house, so I will precook the bacon tomorrow too. Recipe HERE. Yum!
I’m also going to try THIS cinnamon bread recipe from Merrick’s Art to have for breakfast on Christmas day. The jury is out if I will make that today or tomorrow… We shall see! Depends on how the cookies go!
So lots of shopping and wrapping and cooking (and eating) for me!
