Gift-wise we are becoming progressively more contained; adults pretty much opted out (partially because none of us could think of things we really wanted that were gift-y) and the kids gifts were less splashy, although they seemed very pleased with their art supplies and subscriptions to japanese kawaii+snack themed boxes.
I made the traditional lasagna. In point of fact, my mother's traditional holiday lasagna was an excellent frozen variety from Costco, but I actually make a quite good lasagna, with turkey Italian sausage instead of cow and most importantly, gluten-free noodles. (based on this no-boil lasagna recipe with only minor tweaks. I don't own bottles of Italian Seasoning and pretty much just throw in a ton of garlic and oregano and basic and maybe pepper and call it good)
O has now been introduced to the ultimate Christmas movie, Die Hard, though D opted out. It really stands up ridiculously well. This entry was originally posted at https://jeliza.dreamwidth.org/1061847.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
