Better Late than Never Xmas Recap


I know it's about a week since Christmas, but we just got back in town, and I wanted to let you know how the Vegan Christmas Menu worked out.  This was my first year with Josh's family, made even more special by our engagement, and I wanted to show them what a vegan holiday spread looks like.  It went over very well!



We headed to Fort Smith on Christmas Eve, stopping at Pho Vietnam on our way in.  It's close to Josh's mom's house, and they have the best tofu banh mi sandwiches I've ever had.  We got a couple to go and headed over to see the family.  Josh's mom and I puttered around the kitchen until family arrived that evening.  There was a big traditional spread, but I brought a huge amount of vegan food.  The curry roasted broccoli was completely eaten, so was the portabello wellington.  I tweaked the recipe, and I'm going to play with it and post it on here soon.  The salad was roasted butternut squash, green apples and walnuts over spinach.  I think I might have been the only one that ate any, but it sustained me the rest of the week.  The sweet potato casserole took awhile to cook, I had to add more liquid to get it to steam, but it was tasty.




Everyone tried the food and said it was great.  Spreading veganism one family meal at a time!  I think the portabello wellington was my favorite.  It was amazing.


This was my Christmas Eve plate.  It was nice to see another family tradition.  In my house, we do everything on Christmas Day, but Josh's family had a big party Christmas Eve.  There were cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents.  It was really nice.  My whole family lives in New England, and I see them once every 4 years or so, so being around a big family was really fun.

We spent Christmas day drinking champagne and doing puzzles.  It was nice.  We ate the rest of the leftovers from the night before and relaxed.



Thursday, we spent a lot of time with Josh's grandparents.  His grandma even made us an amazing quilt!  We grabbed dinner at Market Place Grill.  I had them veganize the asian salad, and it was really tasty.  I kept trying to make it over to McP Hot Yoga Studio, but I never made it fit in our schedule.  We played some video games and watched scary movies and spent time with Josh's family.  All in all, it was a very nice trip.

On our way back to Little Rock, we stopped over in Ozark to have lunch with one of my roommates from college in town from New York.  I'll give you a full recap on that tomorrow.


This week on the blog I'll be recapping our amazing Thai food lunch, a great brunch at our friends' fire station, our menu for New Year's Eve, and healthy eats for the week.  I'm also prepping for my Arbonne detox, and there might even be a giveaway!

Did you have a good Holiday?
