Do you have any Christmas morning breakfast traditions? I thought last year was a good year to start our because it was our little girl's very first Christmas. I spent a beautiful, sunny Christmas morning in the kitchen making a quiche, white chocolate raspberry scones, salmon toasts, and mimosas of course! I just remember it being so peaceful and pleasant. Monroe was just old enough to be able to sit up in her own chair and so she intently watched me prepare breakfast for all of us and we sat down and enjoyed a gorgeous Christmas morning spread. We talked and laughed about all the good memories of the year and how excited we were for the future.
So, this year I want to recreate that feeling! Because that's what all these traditions are about anyways. Creating a feeling, a smell, a taste that brings you back to a special moment in time that you wish you could hold onto forever. For me, I will always be chasing the feeling of that Christmas morning! This year I'm making an easy egg and veggie quiche, my white chocolate scones with raspberry chia jam, salmon and dill toast, and a little bubbly mimosa!
Although now we have a very rambunctious toddler and not just a content baby. So maybe it won't be as peaceful but a mom can hope, right? So scroll down to see my spread and for my white chocolate raspberry scones with chia raspberry jam!
