Merry Christmas!

I took these photos at the Union Square Holiday Market! It's such a wonderful place. The vendors are placed together in a maze-like area, and the whole place is decorated with Christmas lights. They were even selling gingerbread cookies and hot apple cider (which were so delicious)!

I realize as I get older, the magic of Christmas sort of wears off every year. I'm not even feeling very festive today. On the contrary, I feel as if I hate the whole holiday thing, especially because of my family's plans this year. But I'm not going to dwell on that much longer because it's supposed to be a nice and happy day. I'm sure I'll have plenty of pictures of the delicious food I'll be having though! My dad e-mailed me a menu of our dinner, haha, even though we live in the same house.

Melon with prosciutto
Kani Salad
Stuff Mushroom
Baked Wings

Cherry Glazed Baked Ham
Garlic Herb Salmon
Julia Child's Roast Chicken

Mac and cheese
Buttery corn.
Chinese vegetables.
Garlic mashed potatoes.

Banana creme pie

Now, after rereading that list, I'm definitely excited for dinner! What are your plans for the day? Is it something low-key or is it a really big celebration?


  1. Oh Union Sq looks beautiful and that menu is to die for, yummmm

  4. oh my god, so much amazing food! i didn't feel particularly festive yesterday, but i think that's because we didn't do anything special...

  5. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! And oh my goodness, that menu looks so DELICIOUS!

  6. Oh the market looks fab, I always feel really festive walking around the markets at Christmas time. I feel the same about Christmas too but then as soon as everything comes together and the family are around, I feel incredibly festive and happy!

    Love the look of the food, hope you enjoyed the meal your dad made!
