This past Sunday I decided that I wanted to whip up some healthy food to eat throughout the week. I want to kick off the new year by eating less junk food, and I have found that meal prepping certainly helps. So I spent around two hours in the kitchen making a delicious cucumber, tomato, chickpea salad for lunches and banana bread for breakfasts and snacks!
I am currently sitting here drinking some spiced apple tea and listing to the Cozy Christmas Nights playlist on Spotify. I am trying to relax and enjoy a quiet evening to myself before all the Christmas festivities begin. It all goes by TOO FAST! I am so excited to celebrate my first Christmas in Denmark, and I want to enjoy and cherish every moment.
Happy Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas! If you missed yesterday’s post, you can catch up here! Today I am sharing a yummy recipe I tried this past weekend. These are hot chocolate cookies, and I actually used two different types of real hot chocolate to make them! You can serve them at your next holiday party, give them away in a little Christmas tin as a gift, or even set them out for Santa.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This past Sunday, I hosted my first ever Thanksgiving dinner with the help (ok, he did more than help) of Nicolas for his wonderful family. Just because I am overseas does not mean that I will ever skip out on one of my favorite days of the year, not to mention the leftover turkey sandwiches! The evening was nice and cozy, and I was so happy to share some of my favorite American traditions with them.
