Happy Holidays from TheMorningFresh.com

Things have been rather quiet around here for a few days – and I’m proud to admit that I’ve been enjoying some time disconnected from the digital realm and fully focused on connecting with friends and family down in Miami. I hope all you adventurers are enjoying the holidays as well, whether you’ve traveled back to your hometown to reconnect with family, or are spending Christmas out in Arizona with some fellow van-dwellers, like Beth and Forrest of 3 Up Adventures.

From myself, Niko, and the entire Boué family,

Happy Holidays!

Happy climber Christmas!

May your holiday be filled with lots of cheer and love, plenty of hot cocoas spiked with Baileys, homemade feasts, and outdoor adventures.
If you’re up north enjoying some snow this Christmas, eat a snowball in my honor!

Take a bite out of this traditional Cuban Feast

How’s that for a Christmas Eve meal? Celebrating holidays with a bite of Cuban fare is my favorite family tradition. Tonight’s menu included my abuela’s famous black beans and rice, homemade pulled pork, fresh avocado salad, garlic yucca, sweet plantains coated with brown sugar, roasted chicken, and a platter of lime wedges.

Food like this will always keep me coming home for the holidays.

Loyal readers, fellow bloggers, and travelers across the world – Happy Holidays to you and yours!

My Christmas festivities involve a traditional Cuban noche buena feast, served beneath tall palm trees on my parents’ warm patio – I hope everyone is enjoying lots of warmth and family cheer where ever this holiday finds you.
