Christmas Brunch Ideas

Can you believe there’s only 3 days left until Christmas?
  Neither can I!!
I honestly have no clue where this entire year has gone!  It seems like just yesterday it was the New Year, and here we are getting ready to ring in 2017! 

If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, as true to nearly every December, our family got hit with what I’ve termed from here-on-out as the “holiday jinx”…further explanation here…and it just gets better!

It seems that in the past, I’ve apparently done something to my foot – tweaked it or something – and the more I walked on it, the worse it got.  Last week it got so bad I was unable to walk or bear weight on my foot at all, so off to the orthopedic urgent care I went!

…and above is the result! 
A severe sprain and stress “reaction” nearing a stress fracture!  So, needless to say, I’ve been forced to rest and stay off of my foot, and if I must walk, I must do so with my lovely expensive accessory! 

Then, of course, the next day, I end up with a fever, chills, body aches and the like….so off to the minute clinic I go for a flu swab because, of course, someone has been an asshole and hasn’t gotten her flu shot (yes, me)!  Luckily, it’s just some type of viral cold or whatever it is, and no flu….but it still hasn’t been pleasant!

So, since I’ve obviously had some time this week, I wanted to compile a roundup with some fellow bloggers for awesome brunch recipes for Christmas morning. 
We are planning on having an early breakfast, but with brunch type dishes, so I came up with some great options if you will also be doing the same!
