Jeff and I spent Christmas in Connecticut with my family. We woke up on Christmas morning, exchanged gifts, and ate our now traditional Christmas breakfast of potato latkes, bacon, and eggs. Then I baked a cake (recipe coming soon) while my parents and siblings prepped and cooked some things for Christmas dinner. As you can see, we had an amazing feast!

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas -- filled with lots of good food and good times!
