Christmas Eve

Yesterday was my parents 40th Anniversary. Dean & I and my brother & sis-in-law & nephew Logan took them to dinner last night. We went to Parrain's & it was delish. I had fried fish & fried oysters which were really good. Logan enjoyed the onion rings & crawfish eggrolls.
Logan enjoys food & everytime the waiter would bring something to the table Logan got a big smile on his face & would watch every move the waiter made. It was funny.

After dinner Dean & I came home & watched The Grinch. This morning I had baking to do. I made monkey bread for breakfast. My mom made it when we were kids but this was the first time I'd made it. Surprisingly, it turned out good. Here's the recipe.

3 cans of biscuits
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 stick of margarine
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cups chopped pecans (optional)
2 tsp water

Grease bundt pan & put pecans in the bottom of the pan.
Mix the cinnamon & sugar together.
Quarter the biscuits & in roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture
Layer the biscuits in the bundt pan
Melt margarine, brown sugar & water in small pot & boil for a minute.
Pour over biscuits
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes

This is what it looks like once you finish layer the biscuits.
The finished product.
I forgot to take one after putting the syrup on. It's really good!!

We're off to Mass & then to have a "Cuban Christmas" with out neighbors!



  1. That monkey bread looks SO good & I've been looking for a recipe to try - thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful Christmas my friend!! :)

  2. Congratulations to your parents, Traci! It's 42 for us, so we are close to the same age which is probably why I'm often passing out motherly! Logan sounds like a real character & a lot fun.

    Haven't made Monkey Bread in a gazillion years, but you reminded me just how tasty it is!

    Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas!
