Following another of our family traditions, we had bagels, cream cheese, salmon, pastrami, roast beef, homemade pesto, swiss cheese, and sliced onion for breakfast. And lately, we’ve also had Scotch Bonnet on the table for those who like to add a little heat (that would be me). When we meet with our extended family, we also have corned beef, but I skipped that this year. But one thing that made it very special for 2020 is that the bagels were homemade. Super yummy, with good ingredients.
The timing of the breakfast varies… sometimes happening before opening gifts, sometimes after, and many times both. This year it was before the gifts which is fine with me because that gives me more time to wake up and have coffee! I guess the older the kids have gotten, breakfast seems to come first as they have more self-control with their gifts and can wait a bit longer. 😊
For those celebrating, I hope you had a nice Christmas!
