Well the first Christmas at our house has been a success so far despite the very cold temperatures. The presents are opened, the turkey is in the oven and we’re all enjoying our gifts, napping, watching movies and building puzzles for the afternoon. In proper form we’ll fill our bellies with turkey, stuffing and desserts later on and then enjoy the evening sipping wine, playing games and eating dainties…. theoretically at least, if the turkey turns out… we’re trying out a new method, a vegetable trivet bed with a herb rub for the bird and roasted mixed veggies instead of traditional mashed potatoes and steamed peas. Sounds tasty at least! However it turns out we’re certainly fortunate to be able to enjoy our family and all these gifts in a warm, safe house.
All the best to everyone out there, we hope you have a great Christmas day and a fun and safe holiday season and New Year!
