The Day After Christmas

Ugh.

Still recovering from a turkey breast cooked with bacon, dulce de leche-glazed ham, two types of stuffing, roasted potatoes and parsnips, sauteed green beans, a bottle of Riesling, a bottle of Shiraz, and the terribly decadent and all together good for you Krispy Kreme bread pudding with espresso whipped cream.

(That’s right – a dessert comprised of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, cream, and eggs… there’s the secret to my girlish figure).

(The list above does not include the Christmas eve beer and mulled wine beverages either).

So, yeah: ugh. I need to nap for a couple of days.

Hope your holiday was as joyful and anti-coronary as ours.

Update: This recipe sounds like a tasty variation on a doughnut theme – Bill Nicholson’s Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding with Butter Rum Sauce – yum! Any recipe where the precise measurement of rum is “to taste” can’t be all bad.
