As we speak, as I used to be placing some fun-size sweet into Christmas stockings, I believed to myself, Oh, after I decide up stuff for cinnamon rolls, I ought to get some eggnog, too, that’ll be good. After which simply the considered that Christmas morning nearly made me sick.
Cinnamon rolls. Eggnog. Mimosas. Stocking sweet. Ten sorts of cookies. On the one hand, its festive and scrumptious. Alternatively, my guts can not survive.
So right here’s my new Christmas morning custom: make one thing, something, that’s savory as an alternative of candy. Add some fiber—or, blasphemy, a vegetable—to the festive unfold. An egg bake alongside the cinnamon rolls. Bloody Marys as an alternative of mimosas. Roasted white and candy potatoes. Brussels sprout hash. In order that by the point we get to a different afternoon of sweet and cookies, now we have even a preventing likelihood.
