Winter Vacation!

Traditions are the best aren't they? Well this one may be my favorite: every year I take off as much time as my schedule will allow for the holidays, general merriment and relaxation. TODAY starts my two week vacation!

So how have I celebrated? Up bright and early for a good gym session, and then back here at home I whipped myself up a bit of a decadent breakfast and am now pouring through cookbooks for recipes and ideas for Christmas Eve dinner which I get to host this year! Cioppino has been decided on as our main course, so now I'm looking at desserts, appetizers and side ideas! This is really is the best way to spend a day!

My decadent breakfast this morning? Christmas morning I always remember having those delicious Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. Piping hot, spicy with cinnamon and sticky sweet with that odd icing in a white little plastic thing? Delicious in my book! Well I bought a pack a few months ago to make an easy apple crisp ( this is the easiest ever-I'll post it some day!), but never made it. So today, in celebration of my winter break- I popped them in the oven.

One of those with a single scrambled egg, a banana and a good cup of coffee- I am ready to brainstorm and delve into cookbooks all day!
