What I Ate Wednesday: Holiday Hit List

Ohhh man you guys… single-digits until Christmas. How did that even happen?!

During this exam period, I have been happily daydreaming of everything I want to do over the holidays. The top priority is called ‘anything-other-than-studying’. ha. But beyond that, I am so excited to soak up the company and go over-the-top with Christmas-themed everything.

Finals aren’t particularly conducive to getting into the spirit but you best believe that when my last one is written I’ll be embarking on a mission to make up for lost time!

To Watch 

I haven’t watched a single Christmas movie yet and I am not okay with it. My all-time favourites are The Holiday, Love Actually, Serendipity and The Family Stone. What are your annual must-sees?!

To Make

Sally is my baking hero and she just posted 50 of her favourite Christmas Cookie recipes. I want to make every single one. I am also super intrigued about the idea of a peppermint cheesecake. I can’t decide if I think if would be delicious or gross. Thoughts? And I’m too curious about this quinoa brittle that’s been swirling around the net to not try it!

Afternoon Snacks

To Do

I can’t remember the last time I had hot chocolate so I will be remedying that at the first possible opportunity. Preferably accompanied by a stroll to Parliament to see it all illuminated! Some more Christmas light driving is also on the itinerary and I have a church Christmas concert jotted on the calendar too.

I’m pretty sure an apple got eaten before bed too but I can’t even remember (from Sunday). I think my brain is being pretty selective about what information is important enough to memorize right now and apparently food consumption isn’t making the cut.

Hope you’re having a great week!!

And tell me, tell me – what are you doing to get into the spirit?!
