Let me just TELL you...

...about Christmas dinner. Oh my goodness. Now most of you know that I don't live to eat. In fact, if I didn't have to, I probably would almost never eat. But I would eat that Christmas dinner all day, every day.

We had venison filet mignon, bacon-wrapped and everything. That alone would have been amazing enough, but we had beans (sauted in lemon juice and onions for that perfect "mmmmmmmmmhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmm" taste), mashed potato casserole (that stuff melts in your mouth, lemme tell ya what), country ham (SALT. SALT. SALT.), and biscuits ("Better than Bojangle's. Fo'real."). And as if that wasn't enough to keep us moaning in glorious ecstasy for months, Mrs. Allen brought a wondrous homemade chocolate torte for dessert.

I had some more (of everything) a couple nights ago for a snack*. It was almost just as good as the first time.

I do not have pictures, because you'd all be drooling all over your keyboards and that's gross.

I do, however, have a very bad picture (courtesy of the webcam at night) of my new haircut, not like you haven't all seen it on Facebook by now, and not like it has anything to do with this post anyway. But that's ok.


*Note: Katie Beth's "snacks" are normally what anyone else would call "meals."

Love your haircut, but you know that already :D

That sounds absolutely delicious. I would be drooling, but I too full *our* Christmas leftovers. ;-) We're taking this whole 12 Days of Christmas seriously. Ribs (delicious. delicious. delicious.), tamales galore, souflees, chipotle soup, chocolate dipped fruit, and more :D

I always associate snacks with your family, lol.
"It's 3:00!"
*the whole Groover family goes to the kitchen*

I totally thought Anna was joking when she said she had a scheduled snack time ;-)

I won't get over the haircut.



Oh, and yay for food. I feel so fat this Christmas--I've eaten entirely too much. I guess ten gazillion different parties will do that to someone.

Oh word... you had me drooling over the keyboard just by description. Shame on you.

Although *we* had an Italian Christmas; Spaghetti, lasagna, fettuccine, spinach fettuccine, and some amazing breadsticks. :)

Your new haircut is THE adorable! I love it!

Josh said...

Ha! The description alone made me drool all over my keyboard! Pictures would have pushed me over the edge!

whoa, super short hair. It looks nice. And also food is delicious.

Food...I need some.

*pokes you* You never did post your Twilight review ;)

I haven't FINISHED the stupid thing. *frazzled to death* I've got the character breakdown all done, but I still need to do the scenes, and I'm afraid that if I post the character thing before the scenes, I'll never actually DO the scenes. :-D
