This post includes five sweet things, four holiday theme items, three types of eggnog, two homemade dinners…
Stumptown Cold Brew with Trickling Springs egg nog.
Grady’s Cold Brew with Promised Land Holiday Nog.
I made my banana toffee magic bars for a cookie exchange at work and they came out really well! I subbed in caramel chips for butterscotch and it think it was an upgrade.
Sweethaus‘ holiday cupcakes are somehow eight times better than their already fantastic regular offerings. Eggnog and gingerbread with meringue frosting.
Hardywood’s gingerbread stout is stupid good and dangerously easy to drink.
This lavender can from Kombucha Town is my current favorite kombucha; it’s very mellow.
Fancy tuna salad makes an easy dinner. A mix of tuna and smoked sardines with mayo, dijon, and capers / roasted brussel sprouts / baby carrots / Trader Joe’s everything crackers.
But Wegman’s take-home meal section makes an even easier dinner. Spicy general tso chicken with fried rice and seaweed salad.
And one night I did legitimately cook – a protein, some veggies, and even a sauce. Asian take-out style tofu! This recipe but with oven fried tofu (similar to this method) in place of chicken. I also used rice vinegar instead of red wine vinegar and added in some cashews.
