Advent: Day 7

One of my very favorite activities we do to celebrate Advent is our red and green meal.  It’s not actually tons of work, but it takes a little pre-planning and that makes it all the more special.  The boys always have a great time eating this meal and love how fancy it is.

I made green pepper “Christmas trees” and lime water.  Our main meal was just a salad with lots of red and green toppings: red apples, green apples, cucumbers, and tomatoes.  We had pomegranates as a side dish (because they are beautifully red) and red chocolate covered cherries for dessert (not made by yours truly).  Pretty simple, but lots of fun.  And the boys humored me by wearing red and green shirts. =)
