I don’t know about you, but I’m still so full from gorging myself on Christmas Day that I probably don’t need to eat again until Easter!!
How did you spend your Christmas Day? Were you a host or a visitor?
I did both! Hubby and I went to his parents place for a champagne breakfast with the family. We had a big ham and egg fry up, opened some gifts and headed back to our place to start preparing lunch for my family.
It was by far the best Christmas Day I can remember, despite that crappy Sydney weather. My entire family came over and we ate fresh prawns, garlic & lemon scallops, ham, warm potato salad, mango & macadamia salad (thanks Sarah) for lunch. Hubby made a big patch of Pimms to wash it down with.
A nap after lunch would have been lovely, but the drinks were flowing and the laughter was addictive.
We cleared the table and then started preparing for dinner; Maple glazed ham, sage & cranberry stuffed turkey, roasted root veggies, feta & tomato salad (thanks Aubrie), minted peas, lots of French Champagne!! Dessert was a hit also. My Mum made her famous Xmas Pudding and I whipped up a Berry Trifle!
Here are my fav highlights of the day:
I hope your Christmas Day was filled with as much love, laughter, happy memories and amazing food as mine was.
PS – Mother Nature, if you’re reading this, I’d love to request some super hot weather next year xx
