I didn't get those smiley, happy family Christmas cards out this year. You know, the ones where you suck in your gut as the photographer tells you to smile in an attempt to regain those ten pounds the camera mockingly gives you. Now, I even have to worry about HOW much I smile. I don't want those crow feet showing too much.
Our toddler showed her true emotions during our picture taking session. Every picture she glared at the photographer. He tried squeaky ducks, monkeys, rattles, lights and jumping up and down waving his arms like a clown. Only glares were returned. I hate to say it, but I feel exactly like her during picture time. I know I'll be grateful we have those precious family pictures years from now, but I'm not one who loves being photographed.
With the holidays come and gone and Christmas cards that never got sent I decided to take a different approach on the whole "holiday card" thing. I call it--the winter card. Now I have the flexibility in my mind of sending out holiday cards anytime between the end of November and end of February. I really love how my brain works sometimes.
I also might not have made it in time to post this recipe before the holidays but really pomegranates are more of a winter fruit giving me until the end of February (note the WINTER decor) to post this too.This bread is absolutely gorgeous to give (and eat). The pomegranates offer a unique twist to the melt in your mouth white chocolate.
I made these gorgeous white chocolate snowflakes to top each loaf of bread after seeing them made on a cake by Barbara Bakes. I'm still tempted to try the cake too but am trying to be good.
