Merry Christmas Everyone! I was blessed with a wonderful two days surrounded by the people that I love. I’ll take you through a photo recap of the highlights. To begin, I baked Emily’s Pumpkin, Fig and Pomegranate Upside Down Cake:

Pretty as a picture, and tastes even better 🙂 The cake was made for Christmas Eve which I unfortunately did not photograph. It was a great night with my Dad’s side of the family and Eric came, too. I brought a spring mix salad with pears, dried cherries, almonds, and goat cheese. There was also shrimp cocktail, my parent’s New England Fish Chowder (with shrimp and scallops), ham and cheese tarts, and our family’s traditional pork pie. Now, on to Christmas morning:
My parents still put out our Christmas presents after we’ve gone to bed on Christmas Eve. Yes, my brother and I are both in our 20’s…it’s fine, just go with it 🙂
And the most simple and delicious baked salmon ever!
