Is it just me or is the day after Christmas just kind of....blah? I guess so much anticipation and preparation, and then it's over. But at least it left behind wrapping paper bits here and there and dishes that I still don't want to clean. Oh well...I will reminisce about the food....
I made a cranberry cake I had seen several months back at Real Mom Kitchen. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make it for Christmas.
She mentions in her comments the cake was just a little dry, so I just increased the amounts of oil and sour cream by a bit and didn't find it dry at all. The butter cream sauce really makes it special. Here's the recipe...
We also had Green Bean Bundles, which I had always wanted to try. Pretty yummy, of course can't go wrong with bacon!.
We also had this Chocolate Wafer Cookie Cake that I've been wanting to try for some time. Although I did mine more as a trifle than a cake, just figured it would be easier.
This is over the top delicious! I loved the crushed candy canes sprinkled on top, give it just a little bit of mint. Those wafers can be a little hard to find, but it's worth the effort.
So I hope none of you are feeling as ho-hum as I am. I'm sure I'll be back to my chipper self in no time!
