merry xmas

Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating today. I hope you all have a wonderful day with your family and friends!

Our family had a hot Christmas dinner last night and we enjoyed every mouthful of it! On the menu for last night my folks prepared roast lamb, turkey, roast potatoes, butternut and peas. We all ate so much we didn’t even touch the Christmas pudding! Today we took gammon, lamb and turkey to family and we all sat down and enjoyed cold meats and salad for lunch. I also made trifle for us which I do every year. My whole family loves trifle so needless to say we finished the first bowl in no time.

Now we are all relaxing and watching TV (some are on their second helping of trifle) and I’m sure a few of us will take a nap soon.

This year we were overseas on holiday in the beginning of December and got back a few days before Christmas. We didn’t put any decorations up or a tree which is a first for us and we never gave any gifts either. This year’s Christmas was more about spending time with family and enjoying a meal together.

Here’s a pic of my trifle that everyone loved (even though I put a little too much Amarula cream liqueur in it – oops!)
