Happy day after Christmas!
The best part of the day after Christmas? Well, there are a few things. Firstly, breakfast is leftover apple crisp with a large cup of coffee (see above). Secondly, my youngest son is happily playing with all his new toys and games, while my older kids are happily sleeping until noon. Thirdly, the house is semi-quiet and peaceful and the fridge is stocked full of yummy leftovers (including a ham and orange mustard sauce). In many ways, I’m happier on the day after Christmas than I am on Christmas day, which has turned into a stressful day, now that I’m the grown up in charge of everything (gifts and food and orchestrating happiness for everyone). But the day after, well, that day has turned out to be a lovely day.
The day after the day after (tomorrow) I will make ham & bean soup and scalloped potatoes with ham and my daughter plans to make cinnamon chocolate cupcakes, but today, the day after Christmas, is heated up leftovers from our Christmas day meal. Today started with how we ended our Christmas meal, because it is an upside down kind of day, and I’m perfectly happy about that.
Happy Christmas everyone! And happy day after Christmas to you as well!
