After we opened the presents, this is what I made (with instruction from my dad) for dinner. It's mostacholli. (I affectionately call it "Monstercholli's") It was really good, and my dad says that we ended up making enough for about 10 or 15 people.
and I bought some frozen French bread baguettes that you cook in the oven, that was a good side to the mostacholli.
My sibling bought me a knitting book for Xmas, so I'll be getting the scrap yarn out later tonight to play with some knitting needles. (thanks sibling and sibling-in-law)
and here's my Christmas tree, before we opened up all the presents.
