Menu Plan: Christmas Leftovers

Although I burned my finger on the donut oil, almost set my stove on fire with boiling over pies, broke my grain mill, and my nephew needed eight stitches in his foot on Christmas night I’d say we had a great weekend. 🙂

We spent Christmas Eve with friends and had some delicious smoked salmon, grilled venison (I used this recipe for the marinade and it was amazing!) and trout cakes (also amazing- recipe coming).

Then my family arrived Christmas day and we had our Christmas dinner. It was a great day until my nephew stepped on broken glass while playing in our neighborhood. He needed eight stitches and my brother and sister-in-law spent the evening in the ER, but thankfully he’ll be fine, and there was enough pie left over when they got back to our house.

My grain mill broke- more on that in another post- and my new one isn’t arriving until the end of the week so breakfast this week will end up being cereal, oatmeal and eggs.
